Since the centre opened thousands of women have accessed our services. The impact of Kingston Women’s Centre is that local communities become stronger and the social and economic value is infinite. Looking after mental wellbeing is important as life pressures are becoming increasingly difficult in modern times, particularly for women facing emotional and financial hardship.
We are proud to support the women who use our services and thank them for their positive words about Kingston Women’s Centre:
Experience of counselling
‘A space for me, uncritical and accepting, to find out where I am, what is happening inside me, and to look at it objectively.’
‘Having the space to reflect and explore and make sense of patterns.’
‘The most difficult part has been not to give up. To keep going even through the not so pleasant times.’
What has changed ?
‘Before, everything was negative, which made every day functioning hard. Now I’m not feeling critical of myself, I’m feeling spontaneous and able to have a voice.’
‘Self-confidence and self-worth are now real!’
‘I’m more open to talking about things rather than shutting down.’
‘I have grown so much – grown into an adult.’
‘Being kinder to myself and accepting myself.’
