I love this question! Yes, I used the counseling service before, and it was very helpful.
At first, it was difficult. You know, to completely open up your personal life to a stranger. However, you can trust counselors in INTI to be private about these matters.
You can expect a lot of
- Why do you think
- How do you feel
- Is there anything
- What do you think triggered
In my case, I was really tired of life, felt that life was so unfair. I had the scholarship to maintain, and my aunt who was poor was having a stroke and my mum needed strong moral and financial support from my end. I could not really focus as I had to do so many things at once. I had to maintain my grades, go to the hosp, find ways to collect the donation and be there for my mum, the sole caretaker, alongside many family dramas. I was confused about what to prioritize. YES. The sessions help, it helped me to see things more objectively and understand my thought process a bit better.
It helped me to let go of things, and in general to be a less anxious person. I think it still helps me today.
