Everyone at Harmless are eagerly awaiting the Tesco mum of the year award finalists announcement. Earlier this autumn Harmless’ Director was nominated and short listed for the award following her own triumph over self harm and mental health problems in order to train as a psychotherapist and set up the award winning self harm service. We are keeping our fingers crossed!
Harmless Director and co-founder, Caroline Roe has been short listed for Tesco Mum of The Year Award. Following her own significant struggle with self harm, Caroline made a full recovery and now works as a psychotherapist within the service that she set up to ensure that no one else should go unsupported.
Caroline was written off by many professionals as a time waster and an attention seeker, yet she fought against the odds to take back her life and help others.
Now many years on she aspires to be a good role model to others in despair but namely to her one year old son.
“Being a mum is something that I never thoughts I’d have and is the best thing I have ever done. I don’t do what I do for recognition, but because I love my son and want to be the best mum I can be for him and the best person I can be, in helping others.”
