Don’t hold anything from your counselor when discussing your parents and other relatives. In case there are things that always disgusts you about parents and the other people, ensure that you open up and list them all. There must be several positive things that you like about your parents and people and you should list that too.

Tell your counselor all about how you want you parents to treat you and what makes you feel mistreated. When you do that, you will give an opportunity to your counselor to deal with your problem.
Every counseling you receive, you should put in practice.
