SASS has been very detrimental to my healing process in almost everyway possible. They have shown me how to start to live again in a world where I have only known fear. Through listening and understanding they have given me tools I now use in my daily life to feel whole again, which is a feeling I never thought possible. With SASS we are shown that we can be so much more then just 'a victim' we are Women!, we are human!.
When I first moved to Cornwall , and throughout my stay there, SASS was my safest and main resort where I had a lot of Warmth, Support, Compassion and a lot of Fun... like literally fun dancing, eating, painting and also chatting with the best and most honest people I have ever met in my life . I don't know what I would do without being referred to Sass, I can say I literally felt LOVED and HEARD for the first time after too long. I just love and miss this place, my favourite!!!
I have gone to SASS twice in my life for about a year or so at both intervals. It was always about the child sexual abuse that I had gone through. I am 59 years old now and periodically throughout my life I get triggered somehow and again go through all that turmoil. SASS has helped to keep my alive and helped get through some really rough spots in my life. They have empowered me and validated my feelings. I am grateful to them and it is comforting to know that I can always go back.
