“You listened to me when no one would.
You spoke to me and gave me love.
You cared for me when I had tears in my eyes.
Due to the past and all the lies,
I felt like a dead person with no heartbeat
Until you came along and turned over a new leaf.
All the tears I flood at home
In the world I felt alone.
I’d never imagine my councillor would be like me,
Until I actually met you!
You have showed me how to deal with death, abuse and parents!
So that I thank you.”
A young person after counselling sessions with BTHC
