“I felt guilt and deep, deep sadness and I didn’t know where to turn.  Sands Lothians was a life line for me I finally had people I could talk to and would understand and not judge me.  The first meeting I had with Nicola I poured my heart out and she listened.  She showed me so much kindness as have the other members of this group, they have been kind to me when I couldn’t be kind to myself and for that I will be forever grateful.”
