I am a friendly, experienced counsellor and psychotherapist as well as trained nurse.I offer a free 20 minute consultation/assessment for all potential clients.only 3 of 20 participants (15%) in the Echoborg condition stated this.Others thought that the study was about people with autism or a speech impairment.If you have a problem you can’t fix on your own, it’s a good idea to ask an adult you trust for help.
In the Text Chat condition, 14 of 21 (67%) of participants mentioned (prior to the researcher making any allusion to chat bots or anything computer-related) that they felt they had spoken to a computer program or robot…
Someone else can often help you see your problem differently. Sometimes it’s just good to say what’s on your mind.
They could give you new ideas on how to cope with things. Talking to someone could make you feel like you don’t have to deal with it on your own. Try to think of how the conversation with the adult will sound and where you would have it. You could write down what you want to say to help you remember.
Finally I write a monthly column in my role as expert/wellbeing coach for Hale and Bowden, Didsbury, Media City lifestyle magazines. You may find yourself looking for a counsellor / psychotherapist for a variety of reasons.
Sometimes its hard to discuss certain issues with friends and family.
