We’re making a difference

Abi has given us so much support and really helped turn an absolutely horrid situation into something we can move on with. Such lovely support with no judgement . You will feel safe and happy with Abi.

The Parachute Project have been an absolute lifeline for our family. Our daughter, who struggles with ASD and sensory difficulties, has flourished….. from the outset, Lucy demonstrated a remarkable understanding of our daughter's needs and continues to go above and beyond to accommodate her anxieties.

I will be forever grateful to The Parachute Project for supporting us through a very difficult time with our teen, and helping her find her way back to herself.

The Parachute Project has been a life saver for us and even though Abi is working with our son she is also able to give us support as parents and give us a positive and friendly face in a stressful situation.

Abi has been absolutely fantastic with our son. She was really able to make him feel at ease and gave him and us the reassurance for him to open up and talk about his emotions more.

Few months ago son wouldn’t have dreamed of walking into school by himself and his anxiety got in the way !

I think you guys did an amazing job you make me feel like I can face my fears and I really enjoyed these last few days. I hope you keep doing what you are doing to help other kids.

It was really good I enjoyed it, it was fun and I learnt things at the same time. I feel more confident on moving up to high school and I know what to do when I’m worried about something.

The children were fully engaged in the sessions and learned so much.

As a school, we feel that the support that The Parachute Project have provided for our pupils has been invaluable and we are looking forward to being able to continue to work with them in the future.

Abi and Freddie were very keen to provide exactly what we felt each group needed and worked closely with us to form this package of support which ran over five weeks and ended in week six with an information and Q and A session for parents.

Abi has helped me so much - I understand why I felt like I did and can manage it better.

She is now able to manage her emotions and is much less likely to worry about things she can’t control.

We trust Abi completely to guide us all through what has been a significant mental health crisis when no one else could.

From the very first time our daughter met Abi she formed an instant bond of trust, very very rare for her.  The sessions are something she looks forward to at a time when life is hard.

Abi, my son is so positive about his sessions with you.
