Hello, my name is Trevor. I have recently completed a course of counselling at my local health clinic. A few years ago, I was involved in a serious accident and since then, I have struggled with my moods, I have had trouble sleeping and I have been feeling very depressed. I was very skeptical about counselling to begin with. I just didn't see how talking to someone would help when all of the drugs I had been given hadn't done a thing.

I have since bcome interested in counselling so I decided to start this blog to encourage others to seek help.
