Hi, I just recently joined this site and group and was reading a lot of different post's. I have been counseling for 2 yrs now. I have a female counseler because their is no way I would feel comfortable with a man. I was raped 3 yrs ago and went through a lot. It took me awhile to even trust my counsler but eventually I did. I feel safe when I am there. She is differnt then other counslers I have been too because she shares some of the things that she has went through too and about some of her life. I still have a hard time talking through things or telling her things because I feel so embrassed and afraid even though I trust her. Does anyone else seem to have this problem? My counsler never judge's me or pushs me. My counsler does give me hugs most of the time when I am there. Does anyone else's counselors hug them and is it normal? I have never had a counsler hug me before this one.
