Rapid Fire Questions 

If you’re a fan of Brene Brown’s ‘Unlocking Us’ podcast on Spotify, you’ll be familiar with her Rapid Fire Questions that she asks of her podcast guests.  The questions allow you to get to know each guest a little from a personal standpoint.

I thought it might be fun to ask our Counsellors some Rapid Fire Questions (some are similar to Brene’s plus I’ve added a few questions of my own).  This will give you some insight and help you to get to know our Team.
