  1. Counselling is for people who are mentally ill.
  2. Seeking counselling is a sign of weakness.
  3. My professors, friends and school administration will know I went for counselling (substitute colleagues for workplace counselling).
  4. Counsellors will tell me what to do.

  6. Counselling doesn’t work.
  7. I may become too dependent on the counsellor.
  8. Counselling changes who you are forever.
