Teenage male experiencing suicidal thoughts

I’m so pleased to have had you for my counselor. When I first came to you I was in a dream world. I remember your two circles (bereaving world and living world) and I said I was in another one! I was really living the previous year. I am now living in the present and I have benefited greatly with your help. I have made a few changes to my life and I’m now looking forward not back. You’ve been such a great listener to my problems. Thank you for all your help.

Thank you so much! What a magnificent journey our daughter has made over the past 15 months since she met you. We are incredibly proud of her and the progress she has made but we know that you had no small her hand in this. Despite the fact that she tells us very little we are assured that she is doing well and has learned vital skills to enable her to move forward.

Lady in her 50s, losing their home due to her husband’s chronic bad health

Feedback from families referred by me to NFPTS has been so positive. Clients have shared about feeling comfortable and at ease on introductions. Clients have shared that they experienced professionals taking a keen interest in their story and listening to what they had to tell. Clients have shared that they experienced empathy and understanding of their personal struggles and challenges from the NFPTS team and most importantly never felt judged by them.
I would highly recommend NFPTS to individuals and families who find themselves in need of support and intervention and know that you will be well cared for and looked after in your journey of discovery. As a fellow practitioner I trust NFPTS and know you will too if you take the next step!

Catherine Boonstra Coordinator Naas Child and Family Project June 2018

I would like to thank you for your on-going support to the young person I am working with. Since this young person has engaged with yourself there has been observable progress for this young person being able to feel safe and engage in a therapeutic process, feel they have a safe place to discuss various issues and challenges they are dealing with and to look at healthier ways of managing their anxieties, difficulties and develop healthier coping skills. It is observable this support has assisted with this young person’s engagement with other supports in a more positive and healthy way and has been able to achieve a better sense of stability and security.
