Making Peace with your Parents

Making Peace with your Parents

logo for webParents – we all have them.

Family estrangement is often something many LGBTI people have as part of their story, or someone they care about.  Holding on to wrongs of the past end up holding us back from achieving our own full potential.  But how do you forgive?  Can we really let go?  Is it possible to mend decades of resentment and pain?

Leanne Renfree, General Manager of Switchboard and Carol-Ann Allan a  practicing Psychotherapist discuss the amazing possibilities available to us when we have made peace with our parents.

Further resources, support and information is available at:  beyondblue  –  Lifeline Australia   –  Switchboard  –  Melbourne Psychotherapy
