Jay has been attending for just over a year and has enjoyed spending time with our team of leaders. Over the summer, Jay went on a residential to Jungle NI with the lads from the Breda Group. In this interview, we ask Jay what a Dreamscheme Residential is really all about.

We hear people often say that they are feeling anxious, perhaps if they have a job interview, an important exam - or even a big date! It is characterised by the butterflies in our stomach, our shaking hands, the awkward laugh that we do that sounds somewhere between a cat being strangled and an angry whale. It feels uncomfortable, unnatural, unnecessary, and the word itself is sometimes tossed to the wind in such a way that it loses its meaning altogether: ‘I’m really anxious’, or ‘I suffer from anxiety’... but do you really?
