What Is Going To A Councellor Exactly Like

Whats it like going to a school counselor?

Going to a school counselor isn't a scary thing, you have nothing to be afraid of. When you see the counselor they will sit down with you in their office and ask you why it is you came to see them. That is when you can explain whatever personal reasons you have for wanting to talk to them.

Since you didn't say why you want to see them, it's hard for me to give an example of what a session with them would be like. Usually they pull you out of a non-core class, something like art, P.E., drama, etc., not one of your core classes like English, math, or science, and the visit will probably last about 30 minutes each time. Depending on what your problem is, you may see them once or twice a week, for a few weeks or for however long it takes for you to work through the problems you're experiencing. Usually you just talk to the counselor about what's going on. They might ask you questions about what is going on, how it makes you feel, what you think about the situation, how you think you can improve it, etc.

You should just be able to go right down to your school's guidance department and tell the person at the front desk that you want to schedule an appointment to see the school counselor. They will probably have you fill out a form that lists your name, grade, homeroom teacher, and why you want to see them (sometimes it's a checklist that you pick one or more things from, sometimes it's a line you write your response on - you can just write "Personal problems" if that's the case). Then they will process your request and someone will probably come and pull you out of class when it's time for you to see the counselor.

I saw my school counselor back when I was in middle school, it's nothing to be ashamed of. Nobody ever asked me about it or said anything like, "Oh she's weird, she goes to the school counselor", it was pretty unobtrusive. The guidance aide would knock on my classroom door and say that they needed me, and then I would take my stuff and go talk to the counselor for the last half hour of class. Then I would just go straight from the counselor's office to my next class, no big deal. Each school may do it a little differently, but it's essentially the same process.

Good luck!

What is counselling like?

they dont tell anyone, anything you sat stays in the room only. theres different things that counsellors can do. mostly you sit and talk about everything you feel you need to let out. some counsellors will offer you drink and food to try and make you feel more comfortable. they wont force you to talk and they wont try and get anything out of you. you can tell them what you want them to know. also they may do a little quiz asking you questions like have you ever though about suicide etc just so they can know more about how your feeling. the counsellor wont judge you at all as they are professional. some counsellors will have things like painting and drawing you can do if you dont feel much like talking but you still want to express your feelings.

I finally made an appointment with a counsellor? Male counsellor/first session?

I think the best thing for you to do is to tell your counselor that you feel very uncomfortable having a male counselor. If you are nervous about being with a male counselor then he needs to know that. If you don't say anything then it's going to be hard for you to relax when you are in a session. The counselor is not going to be upset with you if you tell him how you really feel. Being in a session is all about how you feel. And if you feel that you would prefer to be with a female counselor then maybe he could refer you to one. Male counselors are just as good as female counselors. But if you think that they are things that you won't want to share with your male counselor because he's a man then you need to be with a female counselor.

There is one thing I need to tell you. You cannot go on thinking that your problems are just in your head and that they are stupid. There could be many reasons why you are going through this. You should be so proud of you for getting the help that you need so you can fix that problem.

Your first session is going to be a little bit stressful for you because you have no clue what is going to happen. You have no clue where to begin and you have no clue how it's going to turn out. No, you won't have to describe everything in your first session. You can start by saying that you have many thoughts in your head that makes you nervous when it comes to people and everything that surrounds you. Then your counselor will start asking you question about your thoughts and your feelings. Try not to be too nervous. No one is going to bite you. You are doing something that is going to help you to put your life in order. Again I say that you should be so proud of you for giving you a chance at life. In no time you will be free from what you are going through right now and you are going to be very happy that you got the help that you needed.

What exactly happens during counselling for admission in any good engineering college?

I'll tell you about the process at IISc and IITs, because those are the ones I have first hand experience with.IISc conducts a counselling session in mid May, for KVPY fellows with ranks up-to a certain cutoff, where they tell the students about the course structure, infrastructure, fee structure and other stuff about the institute in general. After that, they take the students on a tour to all the labs there (physics, biology, nanotech etc), and they are GOD labs! Like, some of the best labs in the country are maintained by the institute. The nanotech lab has awesome clean-rooms which most IITs can only dream of. Lastly, the student is required to submit a form, provisionally accepting the admission (of course if one has gone for the orientation, he/she would want a provisional admission there).For IITs, the process is a little different. They conduct an online choice-filling, wherein you're supposed to fill up your list of preference for branch+institute, i.e. somewhat like:Branch X IIT PBranch X IIT QBranch Y IIT PBranch Y IIT QBranch Y IIT RAfter everyone fills up preferences (of course you'll also have to fill in your mains and advanced ranks), they run an algorithm that selects the highest choice on your preference list that your rank permits. If you want you can change your preference list after this, or you can freeze your choice and block the seat. In case you change your preference list, there's another iteration of the same process for those who didn't freeze. This goes on for three times, and if you have frozen in one of these three times, you'll be sent a letter asking to report at your zonal IIT, with some documents (which they'll mention in the letter), for verification.For other colleges, it's usually similar to what the IITs do, but it's offline.

Teacher thinks I should see school counselor? ?

Lately, I've been going through a lot, both with huge stress at school (All honors level classes) and quite a few problems at home. I have this one teacher I am close to who knows, and he says he is getting worried about me. He thinks I should consider speaking with the school counselor, and I agree that I honestly think I could benefit greatly from it. I have a few apprehensions, though.
1. I don't want my parents to know. Will (s)he tell them? It is not a life threatening situation, btw.
2. I don't even know the counselor(s?) at our school. And I really have trouble opening up to people.
3. I am scared it will be so obvious that I am seeing the counselor, since the pass will say it and teachers and probably students can pretty easily figure out what's going on.
4. I don't know what a counseling session is like.
Btw, if this helps, I am a 16 year old sophomore in hs. And also, just so you know this, the school counselor and guidance counselors are separate people. I know my guidance counselor, the one that deals with grades, and am not comfortable opening up to him about this. Also, the passes to go to the school counselor would be different because they don't even have offices near each other.
Any answers to these questions would be so greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

What will happen when i go for anxiety counselling?

You're already anxious about anxiety counselling. See the relation? If they're a competent therapist, then they'll be well informed about how to treat you with 'kid gloves'.
As the sessions progress, you'll find that they actually work it so that you decide what the next step will be, thereby involving you in your own therapeutic approach which in itself, increases esteem and self-confidence and raises your self esteem.
That's one type of therapeutic approach I used to like to use when I was treating clients with P.A.D.(panic-anxiety disorder)
Depending on the severity of your condition, they may choose to use a mild tranquilizer, ie:clonazepam, to help you deal with any anxiety attacks.
Overall, you have little to worry about. It's one of the easier disorders to treat and deal with.
Don't set a time limit for yourself. It may take longer for you than someone else in your position, or shorter for that matter.
God Bless and thanks for reading.

Does going to a sex therapist help? What's it like?

I think that sex therapy can help in the same way as any other kind of therapy does. It brings a new perspective to the problem; it gives both of you access to a third party who doesn’t have a stake in how things work out—and isn’t a part of any of the emotionally intense history that probably surrounds them—and it creates a safe, dedicated space to talk about it. In a lot of couples where sexual desire is very different between partners, even having a conversation about sexuality can start to feel very uncomfortable, or off-limits. So just the fact that you’re scheduling time to deal with it can be significant—as can having someone in the room to change the conversation, if it starts wandering down the same well-worn path.It’s not impossible that what sex therapy will help you both realize is that you’re just straight-up not sexually compatible. It doesn’t sound like you’d be any worse off, in that case; and couples reach an array of innovate solutions, even when it is. Therapy can help broaden those possibilities. It’s also entirely possible that a deeper understanding of where you’re each coming from could help shake some things loose, and start to resolve the impasse you’re currently stuck in.Different therapists are different, but you’ll probably give some kind of sexual history—certainly of your life together, very probably of the ways you each encountered and engaged sexuality throughout your lives. This will likely include information about sexual ethics, sexual values, where those come from for each of you, etc. Your therapist will probably want to know some of the same information you’ve shared here—what the problem is, how long it’s been present, whether it’s ever been better or worse than this, etc. And beyond that—a lot will depend on your specific circumstances (and, to a degree, your therapist and their clinical approach). Perfectly reasonable for you to take all of these questions to your first session, and ask the therapist, though. They may not be able to give you complete and detailed answers, until they know more of what you and your wife are bringing into therapy—but they should at least be able to give you the broad brushstrokes of how they think they can be helpful, and what the overall trajectory of therapy with them looks like.
