Hi,. I'm looking for some advice and help.

I've got my first appointment next friday for my first ever session of counselling.

What should I expect? What will be asked? Will I have to actually do anything?

Any insight please, am really stressed about it.

thanks

On the first session they should explain a little about what they do etc.

They are likely to ask about where you are now and what you want from counselling. They may ask about your past, childhood, family etc.

Just be yourself hun. They are only human afterall. x

ive found it to be very helpfull, its your time and space to talk to someone who wont think anything strange or bad about any subject you want to talk about.

This is tomorrow, and I keep feeling like I need to back out, but thats because I'm a coward. I'm guessing theres going to be a fair few boxes I'll need to crack open...total petrifying.
