Before arriving at Phoenix, I remember packing and then unpacking my case on numerous occasions, knowing that it was the place I needed to be to save my life, but being so frightened. I had nightmares like you wouldn’t believe and I felt every emotion, I was scared stiff.
Murphy and I arrived at Phoenix’s Wirral Residential on the 13th of September 2016, and we were made to feel very welcome straight away. I have had some good days and not so good days but I know that I am gaining confidence, self-esteem and I now know all about consequential thinking!
