Emotions are important for people and act as a kind of guide, preparing us for different situations. For example, emotions can make us act quickly when we need to, without having to think. By showing emotions, we also influence those around us.
Everyone has feelings, but how we experience them and act on them can differ depending on personality, or past experiences.
Some feelings are nice and lovely, while others are unpleasant and difficult. Examples of different emotions are: anger, sadness, fear, worry, joy, love and guilt or remorse.
Everyone experiences stress at some point in their lives for different reasons. Being stressed for a short time is not a problem, but when you are stressed often or for a long time, your body can be damaged.More about stress

Ask the lawyer
If I tell the school counsellor something, will she tell me?
A counsellor has a duty to report, which means that he or she is obliged to report a concern to the social services if he or she becomes aware of or suspects that a child is being abused. There is therefore no guarantee that the counsellor will not report a concern if he or she believes that you are at risk of harm.
