    Nothing wrong with the ability to troubleshoot, mat; call it mentoring. Indeed this position could very well lead to such a thing in the future. Kudos mate

    “I see a problem and I immediately start looking for solutions.”

    I’m exactly like that. I’ve been told by my other half that this is very much a bloke thing. Most of the time she just wants me to listen and not try to fix things.

    My sister in law was a Samaritan for years and lived it. The hours can be quite tough though and they can be fairly demanding but it was very rewarding. The listening without judging or providing answers is tough though. Gods luck though – personally, once you work to their rules I think you’ll be great at it.

    Very appropriate posting Mate – today (10th October) Is World Mental Health Day.
    Wishing you much luck in your process. Men (according to research ) do find it harder to ask for help and support. A calm, kind caring male voice on the end of a phone, not judging, just accepting, could make such a difference to another man in emotional distress. Well done you! x
