I'm considering maybe going to a psychologist or therapist, mainly to just talk and to find a better way to control my anxieties. I study far away from home in a turbulent town in terms of crime and I find myself constantly under stress. I just want to find better ways to cope with it and to not take things to heart. I also have some fears about intimacy and sex (mostly because I don't want to become pregnant). My boyfriend also supports the idea, saying that if necessary, he could even come with me to a session.
Also, what is it like to visit a therapist? should I prepare anything, or is it a very casual thing? I figure that I'm probably going to end up crying at some point, but I guess that's something they are very used to, haha. I just want some tips for what to expect.
