"I’m not there to give someone the answer, or to tell them what to do. We all have our own approaches to life and what’s right for one person isn’t necessarily going to work for someone else, my role is to be a friendly and non-judgmental ear as someone who has been through it myself and can talk about how I’ve dealt with things."
