“Who’s Listening?” is a documentary series focusing on the people whose jobs are to listen to our problems.
As these people support us through our worries, how do they handle their own? As part of “Who’s Listening?”, Fionnuala Corbett spoke to Pieta House workers, a school guidance counsellor, a GP, a priest, and a guidance counsellor and psychotherapist, to find out about the challenges and rewards of always being a listening ear.
In episode 2 we hear from Rita Lawless, a guidance counsellor at Marist College, Athlone, Co. Westmeath.
“Who’s Listening?” is a documentary series funded by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland with the Television Licence Fee. Episodes 3, 4 and 5 will air on August 12th, 13th and 14th respectively, at 9pm each night.
