Detached Counselling (Or Not)

Somebody asked me what kept me awake at night as a minister. I said the crisis counselling. That kept me awake the most. OBSERVATION: However ministers are very different in this area. Some are able simply to "dispatch" counselling with little emotional expenditure. Others treat people's troubles as if they were their own. I have tended towards the latter, of course with the detachment that is necessary to be helpful.
