Katie is a mother of two young children who suffers from severe post natal depression, mental health issues and desperate feelings of isolation.
Katie’s husband left the family home after struggling to work full time, looking after the children and deal with the stress of Katie’s volatile mental illness.
Katie, alone with her two children, was unable to work and is now faced additional financial pressure to cover extra rental expenses. Her health suffered as a result.
Windermere provided Katie with support through counselling, housing and referrals to other necessary expertise. This allowed Katie to meet practical challenges, such as a place to live, as well as better manage her mental issues.
I understand that every child is individual with different strengths and different ways of learning, By recognising and understanding each child and what it is that they love and how best they learn, I can provide them with the best experiences that help them to reach their full potential in all developmental areas. I love doing it.
Resilience for Life has been nothing short of wonderful for me, and enormously empowering. I am feeling so much more optimistic and confident in myself, my driving and taking care of my husband.
(After the Healthy Women Healthy Relationships course) I am on the lookout now - next time I am in a relationship, I will be able to recognise the signs of domestic violence and I won’t let myself get stuck in that sort of position again.
