Denise

Welcome

Hi, my name is Denise. I joined the BTS team in July 2020 as the lead Coordinator for the Building from Broken Pieces programme.
 

I suffered with low confidence, low self-esteem, I had no social interaction skills, I would avoid socialising with others through fear of sounding and acting silly. I Found it a challenge to make friends. My life was full of pain and shame. I had suffered both physical and emotional abuse and carried the shame with me for years, I was emotionally torn.
 

As a former participant on The Building from Broken pieces programme my life changed massively, I am no longer a victim. I learnt how to love myself, my confidence has grown massively. I am able to hold conversations with others without feeling awkward.
 

I am so honoured to be sharing this journey with other women and help them get through the pain that sometimes is so hard to carry. I am committed to supporting and empowering women through their
healing journey, by enabling them to believe in themselves and build their self-esteem and confidence. The beauty of this programme is that you get to meet other women who share similar experiences and go on to build a strong and positive network the future”.

What people say

Breaking the Silence UK; an amazing charity; but even more so run by Raj, who is incredibly amazing alongside an amazing team. I was introduced to Raj when I was deeply struggling with anxiety & depression, I had just started therapy but it wasn’t really doing anything for me. As I spoke to Raj, she suggested that I come onto a 6 month Building from Broken Pieces Programme, little did I know this is what was going to change my life for the better. 

 

The programme is designed in such a way that it allowed me to understand the root cause & triggers of my anxiety & depression.  It was like therapy without it being therapy. The programme consisted of 12 themes & each theme allowed me to pin point the areas that was causing me to feel the way I was. By no means was it easy, but with the great support from Raj & Mary, they guided me to highlight the problematic area & what I could to improve in that area.  

 

4 years on & I’m in a much better place, I have confidence, that I didn’t have before, have been able to let go demons & the past that was holding me back. I couldn’t have done this without Raj & the team at BTS. It is honestly a wonderful charity that push to see celebrate your successes.  I wouldn’t be here today, if it wasn’t for Raj & BTSUK.

I just wanted to say that this programme changed the game for me. The love and support that I have received has helped me to break my silence. I have been searching for so long for someone to counsel me and understand me but this has been the only place where I have found it. These people became available for me and helped me to get to other resources that I needed. I may not be where I want to be but this is the start. If you want to be free then you've come to the right place.

For the first time in my life, I've been able to share that I have been abused for most of my life. This programme is the best thing that has ever happened to me in a long time.
Yes it's uncomfortable but I was determined to make the investment in myself. I would recommend this to anyone who has been abused because it's tailored to meet your needs.
