NodeJS and Dialogflow connection issue

i’m trying to connect my dialogflow agent with nodejs to create a web application. I’ve tried following the repository , but the terminal shows errors.
Would also like to know how to implement a messenger box to this, any help is appreciated.

Code :

const dialogflow = require('@google-cloud/dialogflow');
const uuid = require('uuid');
const config = require('./counselling-3.json'); 

if(!config.private_key) throw new Error('Private key required')
if(!config.client_email)throw new Error('Client email required')
if(!config.project_id) throw new Error('project required')

const credentials = {
    client_email: config.client_email,
    private_key: config.private_key,

const sessionClient = new dialogflow.SessionsClient(
        projectId: config.project_id,
 * Send a query to the dialogflow agent, and return the query result.
 * @param {string} projectId The project to be used
async function runSample(projectId = 'xxxxxxxxx') {
  // A unique identifier for the given session
  const sessionId = uuid.v4();

  // Create a new session
  const sessionPath = sessionClient.sessionPath(config.project_id, sessionId);

  // The text query request.
  const request = {
    session: sessionPath,
    queryInput: {
      text: {
        // The query to send to the dialogflow agent
        text: 'hello',
        // The language used by the client (en-US)
        languageCode: 'en-US',

  // Send request and log result
  const responses = await sessionClient.detectIntent(request);
  console.log('Detected intent');
  const result = responses[0].queryResult;
  console.log(`  Query: ${result.queryText}`);
  console.log(`  Response: ${result.fulfillmentText}`);
  if (result.intent) {
    console.log(`  Intent: ${result.intent.displayName}`);
  } else {
    console.log(`  No intent matched.`);
