our stories

Bec's Story

I’m now an experienced English/Drama teacher specialising in flexible education but I’ve had a long journey to get to where I am today. My early childhood was marked by a very disruptive home life with bouts of homelessness, living in care and sporadic schooling.

I became a client of Phoenix House in my late teens and I remember clearly a supportive, kind and caring environment for the first time in my life. It was like I could exhale for the first time.

What I remember most about my time being supported by Phoenix House was the laughter. I was so surprised that I could get the support I needed without it being a dark and depressing experience. This approach really helped me feel positive for my future and end encouraged me to find what I was passionate about. My journey to becoming a teacher was a long one but with Phoenix House’s support at the beginning I would never have got there.

I worked hard to become a teacher but will always acknowledge the significant role Phoenix House played in helping me have a future.
