Getting the Most out of Counseling
For many students, counseling is a new experience and it may feel risky. If you are feeling uneasy about talking with a counselor, let your counselor know. This can pave the way for creating ease and genuineness between you and your counselor. It can also be the start of building a good counseling relationship.
