Yeva Skalietska on her experience as a 12 year old Ukrainian refugee Therapy Works

    • Mental Health

“Until you’ve been there, you don’t know what war is."
Yeva Skalietska is an unusual guest for this podcast, being a 12 year old school girl - but she has already had to experience many things that no child ever should. At a time when there may be Ukraine fatigue, this is a conversation that we all need to hear. 
On this podcast you will hear how each therapy session has its own character, and this is an example of me not being my best self. I was uneasy and tried too hard which meant our connection was not optimum. However, above all you will takeaway: 


How important it is to be grateful for the things in life we take for granted.

How hard it is for so many of us to picture the real horror of war. 

The curative power of journalling that both enables us to process terrible experiences and support ourselves to have a clear narrative of what seems chaotic. 

How one person can change the course of our life by making the right decisions for the right reasons.

How we are at the mercy of forces beyond us, both good and bad. 

How faith and the belief in God can be sustaining and give us hope when our world is being destroyed. 

The difficulty of the meaning and word refugee, which can be imbued with shame and objectification. 

The power and vital importance of the place we call home which we may take for granted.
