Triber Hazel has penned a beautiful personal poem of gratitude to her counsellor, which explains how having their support has helped her rediscover her inner strength and resourcefulness.


You were the first
health professional
to call me out
tell me straight
that I am in
a good place
far removed
from the badlands
of depression

you called it
able to deal
with the drama
and crises
that might
push me down
into the abyss

Well aware
you said
of a need
to find
and energy
to bolster
my hold
on this fragile strength
