Molehills out of Mountains

‘Please fix me!’ My brain shouted inside my head as I nervously started to talk with the man sitting opposite me. My opening question was ‘have you done this much before?’ His answer was yes! I’m glad it was, this man is Justin and he was to become (and still is) my counsellor.  Continue reading
