This is what you can expect at SiT


The first time you visit one of our sessions we understand that you will feel very anxious and nervous. It is common for people to come so far and not be able to come any further – many have felt just like you do now. Some people have made it to the road, or the door but just not been able to come in. We encourage you to take that first step because we don’t believe you’ll look back.

This is where your healing journey begins.

Take the first step.

To help you prepare for your first visit this is what you can expect:

  1. One of our volunteers will greet you as you come in the door at the centre, they will take you to one side and make you feel welcome.
  2. They will not ask you any personal details
  3. They will explain what SiT is about and what we can and can’t offer you
  4. They will ask you what you would like to get out of SiT and discuss whether we can assist and if we can’t we’ll work to find a way to get you what you need – we work with a lot of other agencies.
  5. There will be other people attending who have experienced similar things to you and they will be in a group, probably having a discussion or taking part in an activity (for example model building, craft, art, knitting or anything else they have suggested and are comfortable doing)
  6. You will be encouraged to join in the group session, but not forced.
  7. You will not have to introduce yourself or tell your story
  8. You go at your own pace

We have worked hard to create a relaxed, quality space for you to feel safe and valued.
