Are the sessions with your sh

Are the sessions with your shrink always group sessions? If they are, I'd recommend going up to your shrink after a session, ask to speak to him alone, and then come out to him. After all, the point of the shrink is to help sort out your problems and the more factual information he has the better he can help you. The law is also on your side -- your shrink can't divulge any information to anyone else.

I came out to my shrink about two years ago, he's cool and understanding, because, well...he/she's paid to be. Just think of it that way, it's not the dark ages (everywhere) anymore where they think that homosexuality is a mental illness. There is a confidentiality contract that you signed at the beginning of your sessions, right? Just do it, if you don't like his/her reaction, then find a new group. shrug.

acually if hes under 18, his parents make the decision not him :P
So anything you tell him/her, he can legally tell your parents until your 18 :P.

I asked my shrink, so i know ;P
And no I'm not out to my shrink
I hate my shrink, why the hell I am seeing him?
Now i have ot think about this, god i need a shrink...
