"I had no idea what to expect when I went to Cathja.  Everyone was so accepting of me. I now think a lot about my project even though I never considered myself practical at all"

"It’s a safe place to express yourself in, you’re not judged"


Cathja workshop

"What’s so fantastic about Cathja is that people understand that you can't always be what you – or others – want you to be. I’ve done marvellously – I'm happier, have a sense of hope, it's not all bleak any more, I've a sense of self"


Cathja workshop

"On these days, my wife tells me to get myself down to the workshop. I don't have to ask but just show up. I am not quizzed about how I am feeling but just welcomed. It always works and I go home feeling better. Knowing Cathja is there whenever I need it is the most important thing for me – and my family"


Cathja workshop

"I don’t think anyone outside of Cathja really understands what it does. What they do understand is that I have become more well"
