They may not want to discuss their problems with a friend or family member. They may feel that the person is too close, that they don't want them to know their confidential problems or the person they would usually confide in might be part of the problem. Counsellors are trained to be effective helpers in difficult or sensitive situations. They should be independent, neutral and professional, as well as respecting our privacy.
