There's drama ahead on Fair City when Cristiano nervously opens up to a therapist about how he's feeling.

Coming up on Wednesday's episode, Will preps Cristiano on what to say to the therapist's questions.

A clearly jumpy Cristiano sees the therapist on his own, who asks him: "This space can be a bit intimidating. Will we chat a little?"

"Ok," he agrees, before the therapist says: "First question I ask everyone: Why are you here?"

"I made the appointment because I've...", he begins, before pausing.

"No rush, in your own words", she says gently.

"I'm afraid", Cristiano admits, his guard finally coming down.
