Bands for life
We have continued to counsel in the Athlone, Roscommon and Galway region. Thanks to the encouragement and support of the Global Giving donations we have new clients who are being seen. For the protection of clients’ confidentiality we cannot share details or pictures however we have permission to share some feedback from past and existing clients to assure you of the effectiveness of the service given :
“when I started counselling I was at my lowest ebb, without the strength, encouragement and belief my counsellor had in me, I don’t know how I would have gotten through a horrible time, she helped lift a dark cloud and I began to slowly like myself again”
It provided ..”the way out of a pit”
“Help was very good. I didn’t feel afraid to speak the truth. I felt relaxed and it has built my confidence so much. Helped me look at myself and live for me – a very helpful service”
“I felt totally understood. The warmth and sincerity I received was amazing. The power of inner healing prayer was powerful, not just counselling on its own”
Hope Trust are planning a candle lit walk over the Shannon River in Athlone on 31st October to celebrate life. We intend to host an event to support family and friends who have lost loved ones to suicide. Our desire is to give hope to, and to focus attention on, the living. We plan to commence a support group for the bereaved to assist in moving on and living life to the full despite their loss.
Thank you so much for partnering with us in providing this service. We have hope this will make a difference in the lives of people lost in despair.
Celebrating life - life matters!
