“this course has been life changing, I felt really isolated before I joined and now I look forward to it each week, it is a life line”

“The tutor makes us feel really comfortable and has encouraged us to try new things with gentle guidance, you don’t have to do anything that you don’t want to do”

 “..it’s such a positive place for people who are struggling with their mental health, it helps to build confidence and setting yourself little goals is sometimes better for a person than self-analysis”

“It’s a chance to learn new skills and have the freedom to express yourself. I’ve done a bit of volunteering here too which I’ve really enjoyed”
