Does going to a counsellor mean I’m a failure?

It might make me worse

I don’t want to be reminded of how bad I feel

What would my friends think?

I might get upset

Suppose I won’t know what to say?

I can sort my problems on my own

concerns when thinking about counselling

Maybe I won’t like the counsellor

It’s like saying I’m weak

I feel ashamed of my problems

Once you start counselling it never ends

If I go to counselling will it all be sorted?

No-one can understand how I feel

Counselling could get in the way of my studies

I don’t want to talk to a stranger

I really must be in a bad way

slide9

Coming to counselling

takes courage -

it involves facing yourself

Counselling is a commitment

of time and energy

Counselling is an investment in

you
