Buried In Treasures

Finding this workshop was “God sent” for me and my household.   Last year I was desperate to find the help and support we needed with my son’s hoarding issue, which he was denying.  I was so happy and lucky to have the opportunity to come along to this workshop, at no cost to us and without having to go through a long referral, waiting list process.

The workshop has assisted my son to understand his hoarding problem, accept he had a problem and encouraged him to deal with it and take action.

As a result of being my son’s support person and going through the book myself, I too realised I had an acquiring problem and I’ve been able to identify my reasons for acquiring and have learned skills to manage it.

The workshops were at a good time of the day, once a week was achievable and 16 weeks is a great length of time (though I wasn’t able to do the last few weeks).

The facilitators have been fantastic, have lived experience, can relate and understand the hoarding (acquiring issues), very supportive, knowledgable and empowering.

I feel privileged having been part of this workshop and very thankful.

The workbook was appropriate, easy to follow and great having weekly homework – keeping us accountable.

Would highly recommend the workshops.

Thank you so much.  This workshop has saved my family and its mental health, as well as hopefully saved my son from an “additional disability” that was slowly developing.
