How can a counselor give you advice when they are not in your shoes? They make things sound simple and 1 sided?

    They can only give you suggestions on how to fix an issue you’re having. It’s up to you if what they are saying works for you

    Whilst they can't fix the problem themselves, they have researched and trained to know various methods of dealing with the problem. These methods have usually been tested across groups of people suffering from similar problems and proved helpful. A lot of the time though, they are there to act as someone to talk to, which at the very least gets your issues off your chest.
