Here's what our clients have to say about us
Mr. H served a long IPP sentence (10+ years) in custody and reported that he had not experienced any form of preparation for community living whilst he was in custody. He arrived at Weston AP and was already enrolled on the CFO3 project from when I had met him in custody 2 years prior. It quickly became evident that his dream job was to become a tattoo artist. Following research I was able to inform him that this dream job could be a reality and that Probation and Weston AP staff were in favour of him pursuing this career choice. As well as assisting in overcoming other barriers to his resettlement in the community, we were able to make his dream job possible. Multiple meetings were accommodated by Weston AP staff, with and without Mr. B present, to help make this possible. The staff remained supportive of his goal and together we made it possible. Within 10 weeks Mr. B was renting a chair in a tattoo parlour in Bournemouth, paying a percentage of his income to the owner and doing something he enjoyed. Whilst this was happening, Weston AP staff were assisting him in considering his housing and moving on plans. This meant that all the barriers to his successful resettlement in the community and the reduction in his risk of reoffending was successfully achieved.
Through engaging with Genius Within Mr. C has learned about how to work at his best, focusing on organisation, managing anxiety and stress by looking at what is within his control, positive state setting, mindfulness, planning and communication skills. One major change is that he is now able to talk on the telephone, which anxiety prevented him from doing in the past. Our plan for managing this and practice means that he can verbally talk with his daughters, professionals and organisations such as his energy providers.
Mr. C was prepared for living on his own in rented accommodation through a collaborative approach between staff at Weston AP and the CFO3 Case Manager. He effectively manages his tenancy, has re-established relationships with his daughter, understands his neurodiversity, is working and is positive about his future. He reports not having ‘meltdowns’ and that he is in control of his anxiety disorder so that he can make trips to the shop for food or to go for a walk when others are outside.
Thank you very much for the brilliant support that I’ve received over the last few months. I came with a very negative and self-deprecating mindset and thought very much about what I couldn’t do. I thought that dyspraxia was very limiting and I was quite depressed about the things that I couldn’t do especially with regard to remembering information and self-confidence.
I discovered that my visual memory is actually really good and that even after the space of a couple of months, I can still remember the objects that I was tested on. It was from then that I started to feel more confident and having learnt about reframing, I was then able to remember things a little better as I wasn’t putting pressure on myself to remember. I definitely feel more confident now as I understand and celebrate my strengths more and I am able to be more positive about myself and my disability. I see dyspraxia as a strength now as I know I can see things in a different way.
You’ve been so encouraging and really helped me to understand my strengths and not to put such a big emphasis on my weaknesses. Thank you very much!
