I'm super nervous for my one to one meeting with my supervisor to discuss about my background literature review (had a group meeting with him before, this is the first individual meeting). I don't know how to make myself to relax, I feel anxious about meeting with him. I don't know why. Perhaps I am not comfortable with him. Also I hate talking about my work because what if he says it is crap. I'm an awkward person, and aren't good at making conversations. Any tips or advice?

My dissertation supervisor was really helpful, through providing criticism + she was easy to speak to, so look forward to receiving the help.

Cool. Yes I have to remind myself he is there to help me.

It can reflect badly on a supervisor if their student's dissertation goes badly. Just remind yourself that ultimately, it's in their interest to help you succeed. Bear in mind that your Lit Review may need some additional work or tweaking - this would be normal at this point, so don't take this suggestion as an inference that your work is poor. Academic research is constantly evolving - and as I found, there's no such thing as "enough" reading!

Your supervisor may challenge you and push you at times, but this will only be to try and help you improve.
