The time I spend supporting Beyond the Horizon as a trustee is very precious to me.
The role is voluntary: I do not get paid, I choose to do it because I am rewarded in many other ways.
It was school holiday last week and I found myself thinking of the young people I counsel, hoping they are coping well during this time without sessions. We’ve tried to prepare for the break as best we can, but I still finding myself reflecting on them and some of the time we’ve had together.
I have worked as an administrator at Beyond The Horizon Charity for just over a year now, and I can confidently say it has been the most rewarding year of my working life so far.
It’s a funny time at Beyond the Horizon Charity.
Perhaps it reflects the “funny”, for want of a better word, time that the world seems to be having. We have been around for 15 years but there is lots of uncertainty about our future due to funding and we are doing all that we can to try to secure funds for the charity into 2019.
Again, uncertainty and change is everywhere.
Working as a therapist in this uncertainty can be tough. In order to offer effective therapy and emotional support to children and young people and their families we need solid ground beneath our feet so that we have the strength and support to hold their grief and distress and help them to navigate their way through it.
So it's a new year and it's a new blog for Beyond the Horizon Charity! We hope these blogs will give you signposts to strength and to finding your way through difficult or even dark times.
As an organisation, Beyond the Horizon Charity strives to relieve distress and protect the good health of young people and their families who have experienced bereavement, domestic abuse or relationship breakdown.
Inside this report, you will hear from young people, parents, schools and professionals and from some of our team members, with examples of the wide-ranging impact and changes that can occur for young people and families who receive our counselling support.
