We are an inclusive charity open to all those identifying as a woman.
Through the generosity and support of the Purey Cust Trust, Kyra Women’s Project has been able to support 26 women through employing a CBT worker to work with more challenging needs.
I suffer from frightening nightmares but with help through the sessions have learnt to ground myself when I first wake to help my nights easier to cope with. Learnt ways to help me relax to decrease the amount of nightmares I have. The importance of looking after myself and how I can do that.
The sessions have given me a safe place to express my feelings and emotions to help me move on. I am confident that as I move on I will be able to live a ‘ normal ‘ life with my past put where it truly belongs
Working with CBT therapist at Kyra these past couple of months has really helped me develop confidence and a calmer positive way of thinking, which I was battling with, for some time
