Hi my name is Natasha and I am the assertive outreach worker here at York Road Project.
I believe having a conversation over a tea/coffee can create a bond and more importantly what is perceived as a safe space.
Simply talking about things can relieve stresses and anxieties whilst also breaking down any barriers, helping anyone feel more comfortable to open up.
Talking with someone and becoming a familiar can create a valuable bond which in time could make it easier to have difficult conversations without judgement, stigma or any shame.
Talking can help you stay healthy and could bring a stop to certain problems getting on top of you. Alongside bonding talking can build self-esteem, potentially provide another perspective thus influencing decisions and motivate change.
