'This was extremely reassuring and helped me to feel safe to express those feelings of exhaustion and emptiness that I had felt after the incident. The facilitator's careful questioning helped me to recognise that the feelings I experienced were probably John's too. The strategy part of the meeting was inspiring; I felt heard, valued and respected for my ideas and I was also able to seek advice about how to use a new strategy, guided imagery. I left the meeting feeling nurtured and excited, as well as having more space to build empathy and understanding for John. The following week I used guided imagery with John, which he responded well to. This intervention resulted in a referral for John to receive play therapy. '
