"Supportive community at Dianella Cottage Katoomba"

About: Lyndon Dianella Cottage Katoomba

(as a service user),

Dianella Cottage recently ran a six-week course called 'Wise Women' of which I was a part of, as part of on-going treatment at the cottage for substance abuse.

This was an incredibly powerful group course that covered a lot of ground in an extremely supportive environment, one that saw many women, including myself, begin nervously and unsure group work would necessarily be helpful, to coming away feeling part of a supportive community with real interest in helping facilitate change.

Dear cassiopeiatb75,

I am so pleased you found the Wise Women program at Dianella to be so beneficial. It is also great to know that you felt well supported and that the sense of community was integral to the positive outcome. Well done on your commitment and I will send your feedback to the staff at Dianella.

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback and continue to be the strong woman you are - and always remember to get in touch with them if you need extra support.

Take care,

Lara McLaughlin
