Befriending… and Starbucks

Befriending is a vital service used to help people to take the first steps towards meeting new people, rediscovering old hobbies and developing new interests. It helped me a great deal by working on combating my sense of isolation, anxiety and other combined mental health issues. It worked on my self-esteem and gave me more opportunities for social interaction. Time was spent to match me up with someone with similar interests and we then discovered we both like genealogy, camper vans and cloud spotting! Overall she is pretty cool, nothing was too much trouble. I would thoroughly recommend the experience, because it restored my faith in humanity, and also gave me an excuse to go to Starbucks!
