Counselors are here to support you in a kind and compassionate manner. And yet, some people may be nervous about speaking to a counselor. However, most people find that their anxiety goes away quickly. You can always give it a try - you are not obligated to continue.
Counseling is a positive step for people when they are struggling. People don’t feel bad about themselves when they need assistance from a mechanic, doctor, or lawyer. Seeking counseling is no different - it is a wise choice and a sign of strength.
Some people don’t like to discuss their feelings. While this is important for many, sessions can instead focus on problem-solving, stress management, assertiveness skills, etc.
