Sandra’s Story

Sandra, Mother, London – UK
Our Family – Our Future

‘Our daughter, had so many problems we didn’t know where to start looking for help. Bulimia, self-harm and incredible mood swings. She had started using drugs, smoking, cutting herself and running away. The overdose left us with little hope that anything would change’.

‘When it was suggested that our daughter Carly needed residential treatment following the overdose, we were at a loss where to turn. We had seen many therapists in London and been referred to CAMHS. We were fortunate to find a Harley Street Adolescent Therapist who recommended The Wave’.

‘Our first call was reassuring, although we were still concerned about the distance and our daughter, who was just 16-years-old, making the journey all the way to Kuala Lumpur. We were supported from that day to this. Not only has our daughter changed in so many ways, our family has too. We’ve had the benefit of family therapy throughout treatment. It has made a difference to the way that we see everything’.

‘Carly left The Wave to join the her first choice university. As parents, we feel that we have grown together and as a family supporting each other and being there for each other in a way that we couldn’t before. We couldn’t see a future and now we feel that we will be able to enjoy family life’.
