When a group member arrives to the self-esteem group we ask that she writes a little about how she feels about herself, and her life. At the end of the course the process is repeated – this is one woman’s story – we hope she is very proud of herself, we are….

Start of the Course-

‘I see myself as unattractive inside and out. I feel a failure being a parent. I am getting switched off to emotions as every event/situation in my life is a bad one. I see myself as always looking back and never to the possibilities of positive change’ – K

End of the course-

‘I am more positive and realise that things take time to take effect and need to work at it. I feel I can take control of my life now and am able to manage and enjoy my children a lot better’ – K
