Jenna Case Study

Please be aware that we have changed the names in this case study as well as some of the circumstances. Client confidentiality is of utmost importance to us in all things we do. Images are for illustration only.

Jenna lived with her Mother following a bitter divorce. The original plan was that she would help her Mum stay independent and in her own home, but soon her Mum turned into a tyrant, who thought she knew what was best. Jenna began to find her confidence was being chipped away, but she made excuses for her Mum, saying she was only trying to help her.

Once the problem was faced with the support of a Portland Centre worker who sought specialist advice, Jenna’s Mum was at first, furious then in denial, then began to understand and lastly overwhelmed with remorse. They attended mediation and counselling together and now live in separate flats but nearby enough to be good friends.
