Beginning to shine again thanks to Newground
J joined the More Positive Together programme with Newground in February 2018. At the time, he was sofa surfing after a breakdown in his 10 year relationship which affected his mental health, resulting in him contemplating suicide and deep depression. He initially struggled to interact with people and was accompanied to appointments by his mother.
After working closely with his mentor he undertook anger management and life coaching with Shine coaching which provided him with an outlet to work on his inner turmoil and gain valuable coping strategies for daily life.
Working with Newground he regularly attended one to one sessions to build his confidence and before long he began to turn his life around. The close relationship he built with his mentor enabled him to concentrate on the future and, after registering with B-with-us home renting service, he was successful in his application for a property.
After completing his life coaching sessions, J met his employment advisor and was successful in securing a full time job within close proximity to his new home.
J is enthusiastic in expressing how grateful he is for the help he received from Newground and has passed our information to several of his friends who may benefit from the programme.
