Here’s some of what people from earlier programmes have said:

  • "This course was precisely what I needed… I can’t recommend it enough".
  • "…much more confident in myself, I now have the tools… Positive and enlightening".
  • "Having completed RecoveryWorks, I'm now living the life I want to live".

People with high anxiety and low self-confidence often struggle across a range of employment related settings, beginning with the job application process and continuing into once they become employed. WorksforMe is a special module within the wider RecoveryWorks programme, that provides specific help for people who want to return to work, or who are currently working.
