It is a portable resource which will support you when you most need. It is designed to help you pace your recovery and create a safe secure space to regain trust in yourself. In reconnecting to yourself you will be able to reconnect to others and the world. It will help you triumph over trauma and move from surviving to thriving to feeling truly alive.
