Lucy- A new Counsellor in Feltham HMP and YOI 'Working with Danny'
'My first morning was spent in the company of a 19 year old inmate who was on remand. Every so often, whenever he caught the sight of a prison officer during the counselling session I could see the 'street' persona come over him. There was a look in his eyes that possibly represented what he had been about on the outside. However during the majority of his time within the session he appeared to show a different persona, one that he may not have allowed others to see. He talked of his pain and his genuine desire to change, and I believed him. What was crucial for him in his support team was the collaborative working of professionals. We all played a part in making sure that he progressed and to make sure that he reflects on the hurt and trauma experienced at such a young age, to then look towards the future and to make sure he makes different choices and keep out of prison'
'This charity is at the heart of the Every Child Matters outcomes of being healthy, staying safe, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and achieving economic wellbeing'
'Client confidentiality is considered to be one of the greatest importance. Anything discussed between the client and the counsellor is held in confidence by the Service'
Our Interview with Zoe made by Shivani
Thank you from, Shivani, Basra, Priya and Aminah
All It ever did, was eat me up inside,
All it ever did, was made me roll into a tight ball and cry
All it ever did was tug and pull at me,
All it ever did was sting me, like a venomous bee.
All it ever did was gnaw and chew at my goals,
All it ever did, was break me into a thousand pieces until it finally cracked my soul
I did nothing because I thought no one would understand the hurt
I did nothing because I thought it would make it worse, as if my wounds would fill up with dirt
I did nothing because I was scared
I did nothing because I knew no one cared
I finally realised there was a way to defeat this problem that was eating me up inside
I finally realised that I had someone who didn’t want my world to break down and collide
I finally realised that I had the support to pull open the zip that has been sealing my mouth shut
I finally realised that my scars of shame were fading, that there was no need to cut
I was having counselling
And for the first time in my life, my world was finally letting me sing .
