My worldview offers a systems perspective that values diverse clients and their struggles. I believe supportive and nonjudgmental therapeutic relationships empower clients.

the best way is tell your parents by what are you dealing with ; be honest describe all your feelings ; your pain , and what you tried to do to copy and didn't work , how that effect your daily life , at the end you can suggest that may the therapy can help and guide to the right path before things , get worse , well all parents will not like to hear that are their son or daughter want to see therapist , it is hard but if it is necessary they will accept to deal with it as family .
