Louise’s Story

Louise accessed family counselling from Relate after tensions arose when she and her children moved in with her parents after her marriage broke down.


Louise moved back in with her parents after her marriage broke down. With a new baby and an older child with autism, this created tensions in the household. Although her parents were happy to provide a home for Louise and her children, sometimes they found living with their grandchildren challenging.

Louise was due to return to work in the grocery industry following her maternity leave, but the worry of how she was going to cope with juggling everything on her own felt too much.

After calling the GroceryAid Helpline, Louise was offered Family Counselling with Relate, this involved counselling sessions with Louise and her parents to focus on communication strategies to improve their living situation.

“GroceryAid have been able to provide me with emotional support and advice for the whole family.”
