Example text

L: I just don’t want the hassle. I see how some of my friends get into problems sexually; maybe getting deeper into relationships before they’re ready and I don’t want that. There is such an expectation. C: I understand what you are saying, maybe we can come back to this and first look at what came up for you in thinking about how you make choices because maybe these two issues are linked. L: Yeah, I see what you mean. Well . . I did notice that often I just go along with what’s easy at the time.

Yes, I suppose so. Lan-li smiles and shakes her head but she takes her hand away from her mouth. C: Do you have photographs of yourself as a child that you like? L: Not really . . I was an ugly child. C: Perhaps if you began with appreciating the small child within you, it would be a place to start raising your self-esteem. Would you like to do a short exercise on that? L: Depends what it is. C: Well, I’m going to ask you to think about what age you might have first experienced yourself as “ugly”.

Second session of counselling I walk down to the waiting room and there is Lan-li sitting in a corner of the room. She looks up and smiles. We greet each other and walk down the hallway to my room chatting a bit about how very cold it is. I notice she is clutching a brown envelope. In my room she takes off her dark grey coat, hangs it on the coat stand, and sits down fairly close to the edge of her seat. She looks a little more comfortable than the previous week and immediately makes eye contact.
