How to maximize your counseling experience

I found these ideas help me during and after a counseling session:

Take a pen and paper to take notes

Be willing to interrupt if your counselor gets off topic, or you have a more pressing matter to discuss

You can accept or reject advice according to your needs

Tell the whole story, but as briefly as you can

Be honest

Work on what your counselor asks you to do after you leave
