External Help or Advice:
We have never made it a secret that we aren’t professionals and as such our advice is only from life’s experiences, rather than a formal qualification. So when it comes to needing professional help, we can only give general advice from our past. Doing our best to point you in the right direction. But we aren’t professionals, so all information should be taken under advisement by a professional.

The opportunity to meet and share on a face to face basis is a core value of support groups. We facilitate casual events such as
coffee mornings and family events to foster that end. It's our hope that people don't feel isolated or they are doing this walk alone. It's all to easy to fall into when those around you don't see things the way you do. But with someone to share with, this sort of isolation can be releaved.
