Gemma’s Story

Gemma came to No Limits for counselling when she was 18. She was in an abusive relationship and suspected her fiancee was being unfaithful. She suffered a lack of confidence and self-esteem and because of this she kept herself covered up and self harmed. Her parents were living separate lives and although she had a good relationship with her father, she hated her father for leaving her and her mum.

Over a period of time Gemma was able to talk about her issues and realised that she admired her father instead of hating him. Her confidence improved and the self harming stopped. She is now in a better place and able to move on with her life.
