Counseling Self-Help Resources
There are several good information sources on the internet. By listing them, we are saying only that they provide information. They do not substitute for counseling or therapy. Our listing does not imply endorsement of all the information which is included. Be your own judge of what is reasonable and what is not. Once you have done some exploring, you may want to bring the results and talk them over with a counselor.
First of all, you can go to your favorite search engine and type in the term you want to explore, such as anxiety, depression, or eating disorders. Be prepared to get a flood of information this way.
You may also want to explore the following sites. Each provides a listing of topics from which you can choose the one(s) which interest you. If you find a particularly useful one, you may want to print it out and save it for further reference.
