I was so happy to have help from Active Plus as part of the Family Matters project.
I really needed support and I was quite nervous about meeting up with the Families Coach – I’ve been really struggling with everything just lately, as I also support my husband as his full time carer as well as working too – he loved his army days and life is extremely challenging for us – it was a great idea to have walking talking therapy- it was in line with COVID-19 rules and I felt safe.
The Family Coach really listened and it was like chatting with an old pal – lots of solutions discussed and plans put in place for things to look forward to.
The Family Coach has been in regular contact with me and I was amazed by how she had picked up on everything I had talked about, and had formed plans and it gave me confidence to even get out with my husband – something we haven’t done in ages due to shielding.
It’s been such a positive experience knowing someone has really got my back in these challenging times . I’m looking forward to being supported with the wider forces family – its lovely to be included ?
