I finally saw a councellor after 4 months this Weds & she was nice, I felt like such a weirdo, I almost cried telling her everything but I understand what you mean cos my first instinct was to get away from her, I moved the chair as far back as I could and even grabbed a leaflet off the table to hide behind (not all the time but when the tension got too much). She's agreed to let me see a cbt therapist so I won't be seeing her again but she gave me her number & I'll go in for counselling on campus.
Good luck with your therapy! I only spoke to this woman for about half an hour but it gave me confidence for the rest of the day!
