Could I just point out to anyone who is considering seeing a counsellor for counselling to help with their personal problems that they will not meet a councillor or other local government representative. (Hope nobody from 'Relationships' reads PC). grin

Whoops, better cancel the appointment then. Thought it was funny we were meeting in County Hall.

Am always amused that the administrative body in an old Soviet republic was a council called a "soviet" (stress on second syllable), which means "counsel" in Russian.
