"This support has massively helped me. I am forever grateful to my counsellor as she helped me to understand my emotions but also that it’s okay to be upset and worried. She helped me to understand and deal with the things that have happened in my life. I have never had someone listen and just understand what I’m trying to say. Showing vulnerability and saying I needed help was extremely hard but Stop.Breathe.Think have helped me so much." - Stop.Breathe.Think young person
