Counselling session 9: Nick finds satisfying experiences through music

‘Still don’t feel anyone cares at home.’ Nick was looking down again and was feeling very low. Things were much better at school; he had made some more friends the past week but he was being careful. These were other kids from the music club, but they were more interested in music and that was something he was feeling more and more drawn to. He hadn’t really been into CDs and stuff as much as other kids, preferring the games, but, well, yeah, he was liking some of the stuff that they were listening to. He liked the power, the energy, and the heavy nature of these bands that they were into. Kind of felt something stirring inside himself when he listened to them.
