Whatever your problem give us a call, You Talk, We Listen.
"I was so anxious, I could not talk to anyone I knew and my family didn't understand. I was so nervous calling them but they were great, they let me talk and that helped, I just needed to talk to someone".
"I rang the Samaritans and they listened to what I had to say, they let me talk. I needed to talk about things but nobody would listen, the Samaritans were there for me".
"I was having trouble at work and was getting more and more desperate, I didn't know what to do. I had heard of the Samaritans but thought they were only there if you were suicidal. The Samaritans were great, they didn't really do anything they just listened to me, that helped me sort out things in my mind and they really helped".
"I felt I had come to a point where I was going to be really ill. I had friends I could talk to but you feel like you are burdening them, so I turned to the Samaritans in Spain. I rang their freephone number and spoke to a lady. I was able to unburden all my thoughts, anxieties and guilty feelings. From that day, I felt like I had been given a stepping-stone to start looking forward and feel happier with myself and life. The support and understanding they gave helped me enormously".
