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.

Counsellor

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

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

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