    I ticked NO, but then I remembered that I had some help from victim support ... would that count
    Yeah, I'd consider that in a sub group of counseling as an umbrella term, as its for something more specific

    I did, but it just made me feel even worse about what was wrong. I met my boyfriend a few weeks later, and he made me much happier, and put everything into perspective far better than the counsellor, who just reinforced that everything was my fault.

    I saw a counsellor once a week for three/four years between the ages of 13 and 17.

    Had counselling and didn't work for me at all. Then moved on to psychologist and psychiatrist and worked much better. However I am probably quite a severe case anyway.

    You sound pretty certain, how come you havent already tried it out?

    If you had already been approached with the opportunity to try it, would you have taken it?
    I tried it before and it ended up with "all your stomach issues (which I've had since I was 1) are in your head". I was never seen again after that.

    I want to try it out.. ..

    I'm not really sure how to go about it.. and I would feel embarrassed if people found out I went to it.

    My parents might end getting stressed about it too.

    Nah, psychologist suspected I wouldn't really benefit much from it but offered me the option. Couldn't commit to the session times/frequency due to work anyway. Since then my diagnosis changed to bipolar anyway so really need to get meds right more than anything.

    I'm doing some now unfortuantely I have Anger management problems, can't control myself. I end up sounding really mean and feeling quiet guilty!

    So far it has been going well, I would say; try it to my fellow Aubergines and Humans, what can't hurt you can only be useful.

    Do not be scared and do not be ashamed, I think anyone who is capable of going into some room speaking with some random starnger, is very brave indeed!

    You do not have to inform your parents, it is up to you, maybe inform them after you see improvements in whatever it is.

    I'm just starting the process at the moment, if you require any advise inbox me and I will be happy to help.

    Kind Regards
