Sally's Story

Sally came into one of Alabaré’s homes for young people three years after her mother had died suddenly.  Our staff recognised that she was still caught up in the process of grieving and she was referred to a counselling service.  However she ultimately still found the whole situation too much to deal with and struggled to open up with how she was actually feeling.

Working alongside her support worker, over time she gradually felt more comfortable in discussing her emotions. Sally and her support worker created a memory box to remind her of her Mum and to help her deal with the process.  

Sally has begun to talk openly about her mother and reflect fondly on their relationship. She has become much more confident as a result and has recently got her first job. Sally is now focussed on securing her own independent accommodation and is able to enjoy a much more positive outlook on life.
