I Am Seeing a Counselor

    I'm seeing the school counsellor,

    because I've had a pretty sh.t life, and I just need to talk it over with someone. I was just wondering, I'm a bit scared to talk about my relationship with my mum and brother, because they both hit me sometimes, and I don't know if that counts as danger so she'd have to report...

    I have to go see my counselor today.

    I lie to her a lot and I feel really bad about it but the one time I was completely honest she referred me to the psychiatrist. That was the worst. A waste of time and not helpful at all. The only thing he cared about was if I was trying to kill myself and what kind of drug he...

    I had my second session yesterday.

    It was really emotional, mainly because I went there very emotional and obviously we spoke about it. I managed not to cry whilst I was there but he's helped me understand that what I'm currently doing with my boyfriend isn't wrong (not opening up to him) I'm just protecting...

    Today was my first visit to the counselor.

    . It was fine, better than I expected. She was with an assistant, her assistant did most of the asking. She asked a lot of "interesting" (awkward) questions. I don't remember what question it was but I broke down in tears, all I remember is it was about my two little cousins I...

    I've thought about doing it on

    and off for nearly 10 years, but I finally went through with it about a month ago. My breaking point was when I fell for a really terrible guy, and then lost him. I've only had three meetings with her so far, and so far she hasn't really helped but I know it takes time. It does...

    well I see a counselor every Friday now.

    .. wish it were 1x a month instead of a weekly thing, may try and get out of that part though. but the counselor has helped alot, he's a nice older guy that seems to actually 'care and knows how to carry on a good conversation unlike the other counselors that seemed too strict...

    I Have To

    I have been seeing a counselor for almost three years now. I started going because I needed help coming to terms with who I really am. Now I have to continue to see one for at least another six months to get my letter to finish transitioning. My counselor has been incredibly...

    So it's been a while

    since I've posted anything. I've had some good months and I've had some very bad months. But I have continued to see my counsellor once a week. I think 2months in, I finally started to see and understand its purpose and how it works. Admittedly at the beginning I really didn't...

    What do you do when your Counselor gives up on

    you and tells you that they can't help you?

    Counselling isn't really helping.

    I feel as though I need to talk about it to forget it, but they don't ever let me. They want to talk about my 'feelings' and I don't know how I feel. But I know what happened, and I want to talk about that, so why won't they let me?!

    I Am Seeing A Counselor

    I started seeing a counselor almost 2 years ago. And in my last session with her. She really surprised me when she said ' if this isn't working for you let me know, because I don't want to see you waste your time and money. From the beginning I had imagine she was a good...
