Hey there. I feel like therapy would really help me out with some issues (mostly down to some sort of inferiority complex I’ve had for a long time) but I told my parents and they weren’t supportive and said I don’t need it. I also really don’t want to expose all my thoughts and feelings to them. Therapy is expensive and I can’t pay for it myself. Does anyone have any advice on how to convince them or what I can do in this situation? Thank you

Go to your gp and ask for a referral, you won't need to pay on nhs and you have patient confidentiality so your parents need not know.

Do you live in the UK? Have your tried accessing therapy through the NHS for free?
