Hi all, we've got a quick off the cuff survey we need to run ahead of some work in the summer.

We've got 50 Octi's to give away for people who reply - if more people than that respond we'll get a big old tombola out and figure out who gets one (so it's not first come, first served, just to be fair)

- How old are you?
- What is the one issue that is worrying you the most at the moment?
- What are you looking forward to the most this summer?
- Is there anything that you’re starting or doing for the first time this summer?
- What’s the one topic that you think you talk the most about at the moment?
- What would you need in order to have your dream summer?

    I'm 26 years old.

    I'm worried generally about getting off benefits and getting a job. I'm also fretting about sexual abuse I suffered years ago right now but I was just talking about it with my therapist which is why I'm thinking about it. I feel as if I want to self-harm right now.

    This summer I leave phase one of the therapy programme I've been on for a few years. Phase one is full-time Monday to Friday and is very supportive. I'm moving on to phase two which is just once or twice a week, part-time. I'm looking forward to it, I more or less feel ready for it but it's also pretty scary.

    I'm going on holiday to Cyprus with my boyfriend this summer. We've not done that before. We did go on a long weekend away but it's our first proper holiday together.

    I want to talk about the sexual abuse right now and why it's making me want to self-harm.

    In order to have my dream summer I just need to spend time with my lovely boyfriend in the sunshine which fingers crossed is what I'll have.

    I don't need an octi as I've already got one :)
