£120 needed for counselling
From London - 61 years old.
Y is a recovered alcoholic. She was assaulted in front of her workplace and sustained a head injury which kept her off work for nearly a year. She tried going back to work, but flashbacks of the incident resulted in panic attacks and paranoia. She benefited from counselling to end her alcoholism and believes that counselling can help her again, but the cost is prohibitive and the waiting period at the NHS service is too long to bear. She needs any financial help to get started.
