    If someone over the age of 18 wants to have sex with you, don't do it at all.

    I'm not sure how old you are but if you're under 18, you're at a stage you're going through a lot and I mean a lot of changes - hormones, body changes, emotions, etc. That puts you in a vulnerable position.

    This may come across as harsh but I'm saying this because I've been in this position before - if anyone over 18 wants to have sex with you, it's never out of your best interest. No matter how much they try to persuade you otherwise.

    Stay safe, @ellie2000
    I'm worried about you. <3

    It depends how old you are, the age of consent in the UK is 16 but I’m not sure where you live so it might be different where you are.

    Regardless of age (even if you were both over 18) you should never feel you need to have sex with someone just to make them happy. Consent should come from both sides and you shouldn’t be pressured into giving that consent by the other person

    Hi Ellie, we are here for you 💜 am I right in understanding there is someone over 18 wanting to have sex with you? I don’t know how old you are, but regardless, you don’t need to have sex with anyone just because they want to. You mentioned they filmed you in the shower - do you want to talk more about this?

    Is your therapist BACP registered (you can find this out on their website?). If so, they have an ethical framework and rules to follow. They are allowed to have sessions with people after extensive training, while they are still trainees themselves but they have ‘debrief’ sessions afterwards which is called supervision. If there is something worrying you about your therapist you have every right to ask for a different one - is this something you want to do?
