If therapy can help me make the right choice, how do I convince my parents that its neccessary for me?

My name is Briana, and I'm currently a freshman at my community college. Now in one of my previous questions, I had expressed some confusion as what to do for my major and those who responded to this suggested I seek out therapy/ mental help to clear up my concerns associated with past bullying I have experienced. I'm all for it and had previous thoughts considering it, but I'm not sure if my parents would feel similar. With my experiences being bullied, my mom tells me to move on, and it seems she thinks I exaggerate. I can get the help on campus; tuition covers 12 free sessions; and I can follow up with my early classes. But if I stared going, I feel like I would have to hide it, so I prefer to include them in my plans. Keep in mind, my dad wants me choose something with this first year. I want to open with them so they can allow me the time to take these sessions for myself (as they drive me). To anyone who responds, I would like to know of a way to explain this to them without looking desperate in their eyes. Thank you and enjoy the rest of your day. #psychology #college-major #therapy #japan #choosing-a-major #adolescent-therapy
