“My 15 year old daughter was struggling with all aspects of life from bullying, self esteem and self harm. I was at my wits end, I heard of the program heal for life it was a last ditch effort to get my daughter back. After a week away she had learnt so much about herself and the reasons why she felt the way she did. It taught us as a family how to manage situations and understand the reasons behind her behaviour. My daughter was hurting and I felt helpless….9 months on and we still have challenges but we both have a better understanding of each other and strategies. Thank to the lovely people that give their time and support, well worth the visit.”
