Will I be labelled?
This is a perennial self esteem issue. When you are in counselling you can expect to feel safe and free to explore sensitive and emotionally difficult issues and problems where there is no judgement. However, depending on how and to whom you talk about your sessions and problems, your friends, family and associates, labelling can unfortunately occur. I will guide you through those issues before you talk to others and how to handle labelling if this does happen. In fact I recommend you don’t share the content of your sessions until such time as you feel ready and safe to do so. Usually the labelling is done out of ignorance and misunderstanding – we will be the educators.
