Why not give yourself three sessions with that male counsellor before you decide to switch to a female, Liberty?
That way, it will mean you are not giving into the anxiety like we gave into the gambling urge so often
“Receive your demons”!
I know what it’s like Liberty. I’ve been pushing myself for years.
The ONLY thing I can do with ease is walk into a casino and gamble my life away.
Strange, isn’t it since that action increases anxiety a hundred fold in the long run.
