    I know a few people here probably have a very low opinion of the Samaritans, and some will have a high one, but I've just embarked on joining up - went to an introduction evening tonight, and it looks good, the people at the branch seem to be very friendly, so I think I'll be going ahead with it.

    Wish me luck :smile:

  8. Congrats!
    The thing about samaritans for me is the lady refused to give me any advice, which i really dont understand. Obviously she needs to use initiative and not give me any silly advice, but i would have thought she still could...

    Samaritans are more of a listening service than advice givers :hug: :smile:

    As Sam said - they can't give advice, they're there purely to listen. They're there to sort of, in a way, spell your thoughts out to you or untangle them and lay them out to you in the best way possible, so you can infer your own thoughts about it, and think about where to go from there....
