Pip assessor and her mentor

Hi i have been waiting 23 wks for my phone assessment with pip.
i suffer from anxiety and depression, i finally had my phone call on Wednesday 14th April and to my horror the assessor had her mentor on the call as well the mentor said she is a mental health nurse,my anxiety was all ready through the roof the fact i had two people asking me questions just put me in a panic and i cried for the 2hrs i was questioned for.
 Its my first time applying for pip so wasnt sure what to expect. is it a good thing that the assessor had her mentor there ? Has anyone else had this ? 
Thanks
