Like ShynSassy said, counselor are regular people too. Theres no need to be afraid.
When I first started counseling (im 20) I was TERRIFIED! but you just gotta force yourself to do it-if you feel it's something that will help you, tell yourself that this will help you and honestly, you'll feel better. I'm a very quiet and reserved person and I don't tell anyone anything. Except my counselor. Shes the first one I ever had and immediately had a strong relationship with her. She probably knows more about
me than I do about
myself!!! But anyway, if you had a bad experience in the past, it just means you probably just need to go through a few counselors until you find one you're totally comfortable with. If you're not comfortable with one-it's not worth it then.
Best of luck to you. I benefit greatly from counseling, so I wish you all the best!
