Boarding school

For some people, boarding school was a positive, even life saving experience. For others, being sent away to school, particularly in the 70s, 80s and 90s was a very difficult and traumatic experience, impacting their lives as adults and leading to feelings of depression and anxiety, difficulty forming intimate relationships and struggles with self esteem and confidence. Some boarding school survivors (a term first coined by psychotherapist Nick Duffell who found that there were common issues and experiences presented by clients who had attended boarding school) have experienced both emotional and physical trauma which can affect almost every aspect of their lives.
