“I felt that I had somewhere to go and I wasn’t alone. I feel that I have more choices now than I did before I called. I had someone who didn’t judge but told me direct that what I had done wasn’t right and made me face it. I really appreciated having the safe space to tell someone what was happening.” — Respect Phoneline caller
