Lucy’s Story- I am 9 years old. Last year my mummy and daddy started having fights. They shouted at me and it made me feel so sad, I wanted us to have fun as a family again. One morning I saw that daddy was not in and his car had gone- mummy said he had gone away for a while but not to worry because he would be back. Mummy started to cry.
I didn’t see daddy for a month and nobody told me where he had gone. I was so sad and worried. In school I couldn’t work and cried to my teacher sometimes. I started to wet my bed at night and tried to hide it from mummy. My teacher told mummy about New Life Counselling and how they can help children who feel sad or need someone to talk to.
My counsellor showed me ways to relax and to let my feelings out in a safe way. I don’t need to go and see my counsellor anymore but I keep a book where I draw pictures about how I am feeling instead.
