Feeling she had to support her family financially and earn enough to pay for her university studies became a huge burden for eighteen-year-old Luisa.
Overwhelmed and on the verge of sacrificing her own happiness, Luisa needed help identifying which roles were hers and which roles she could leave for others to ease her burden.
Courageous conversations in the form of talking therapy sessions with a Family Works counsellor allowed Luisa to take responsibility for herself by allowing others to do the same.
“I realise I had taken on too many jobs and I am not responsible for running the family home.”
Luisa is moving away to study and is feeling a lot more positive about her relationships with her family members.
Family Works offers one-on-one easy to access counselling.
