I think you just have to be honest and open.  You sort of get out of counseling what you put in.  I understand not wanting to air your dirty laundry so to speak, but if you leave certain things out, you won’t get the full benefit.

Just don’t feel embarassed in front of the counselor.  I am sure he/she has heard it all and then some!

Depends on your definition of awkwardness & your level of emotional privacy. I have a very high tolerance for what people may consider awkward so the counseling was a breeze. My friends and I are often used to TMI conversations anyway.

Some examples of the questions that some ppl may consider sensitive (that I can recall) were: do you fear for your safety when your sig other is angry? Do you have alcholism/addiction/violence in the family? Do you feel (forsee being) embarassed by your naked body in front of your sig other? Are you being forced into marriage by parents, pregnancies, outside pressure?….

Good luck!
