Where she started
Jane was a single mum of two boys living in London after divorcing her husband.
A few years later Jane remarried and the whole family was due to move to Liverpool where her new partner had been offered a job. Unfortunately for Jane her younger son, then 17 refused to move, choosing instead to remain in London with his father.
Jane felt deeply hurt and upset about the loss of contact with her son, she started suffering from panic attacks and insomnia. Her GP referred her to Relate Family Counselling.
The process of counselling enabled Jane to reflect and realise that whilst mistakes were made, she had done the best she could under the circumstances.
Where she is now
Jane re-established contact with her son initially by texting, until eventually she felt more confident to speak with him on the phone. Now the pair meet regularly for Sunday lunch in London where he lives with girlfriend.
