School will be starting again next week, which means I am able to see the school counsellor again, whom I only had 2 sessions with before summer break.
I've been struggling a lot over the summer and always thought I'll see her right away when I get back to school. But now I'm having second thoughts.
She doesn't specialize in ED and I'm the kind of person that never talks about my feelings, to anyone. Last time I talked to her or another counsellor, I felt so ashamed and embarrassed and wanted badly to hide and never see them again after the session (because I can't stand having them look at me after me telling them all that stuff). I also regret and had a 'why did I just do that' moment after 'confessing' in them about my ED behaviours/thoughts.
I know seeing her might help me and I really do want to see her and get help. How do I get over the fear of being judged/embarrassed/ ashamed?

Have you tried going to the doctors instead or trying to find specialists counselors in your area, if you don't think your school councilor can help? You should never be ashamed of how you feel and what you do, it is a massive jump of bravery to open your self up to a stranger.
Unfortunately the only way you can get over fear is to stop avoiding the things you are fearful of, then the more often you do scary things he less scary these things will become.
