I had put up with domestic abuse for almost 14 years. Waiting for the court process to take effect takes a tremendous toll on me.
Breathing Space has helped me greatly along the way, through down periods (where everything looks bleak), and never ending a conversation without checking out that i was OK.
As a former Uni Professor, who used to teach active listening as part of Psychotherapy Courses, I readily recognise the skills that your listening team have.
You should take pride in the fact that you have highly professional people working for you, who are making a tremendous difference to people's lifes. They again pulled me out of a very dark place tonight. Please pass this on, in particular to Emma for tonight and thanks to all again
