The Counsellor January 23, 2008

Posted by Mistress B in Family, Kids, Learning Difficulties, Miss Lou, Parenting, Relationships, The Ex.

Over the past few weeks we have talked to Miss Lou about the idea of getting some counselling. We want her to have some skills based counselling to (hopefully) help fill in some of her social skill gaps, teach her to manage her emotions and to learn how to relate to the world a bit better.

She didn’t want a bar of it.

She told us that they were strangers and she wasn’t allowed to talk to strangers. She told us that they can’t help and are useless and never helped her before. I told her that she needed to stop parroting the freaks paranoid rantings and think for a minute. I reminded her that she’s always had counselling through the school when she lived with us. She didn’t really remember so I explained how the counsellor helped her to figure out ways to fit in with the other girls, and listened to her if she needed to talk if she was upset.  I asked her to consider that she would never know if they could help or not if she didn’t try it.

So on Tuesday, Miss Lou was dragged kicking and screaming by her hair went to see the counsellor that we wanted her to see.

Yesterdays session was just a “get to know you and see if we like each other” one. She liked the counsellor. She’s happy to go back.

Another hurdle down!! 🙂

This is the first time I’ve visited your blog and your thoughts have really touched me. You are a shining light who has given me hope with my own “Miss Lou”.
Thanks so much.
