    I Gave Up On Counseling.

     Since I turned 5 years old until this year, I went to counselling. I gave up on counselors. They're so stupid. The only one I did like and look up to was my school counselor all of elementary school. I owe her a lot of my life. I wish I could meet her again, but I'm 65...

    The Goal of Counseling.

    My older half-sister (older by 8 years) suffered from depression as a teen and eventually started to use drugs. My dad struggled with this for a long time, and when I turned 13, he got me a psychologist to "nip things in the bud", basically. I really liked my...

    It's Nearly Over.

    I've had counselling for nearly a year because my insecurities were taking over my life. My last session is the week and I am excited but scared of being 'alone' again.

    Is It Worth It?

    I recently started online counselling on Kooth, which seems to be a site I have hoped for for a long time. It's taken a long time to realise I need help, and finding Kooth which means I don't need to face my fears of open counselling, is a huge relief. However, I think I saw...
