Most Helpful Girl
Your friend's boyfriend does not force her to do anything. He might nag and moan if she does not but it is her choice whether she does it or not. Whether she does it out of fear or to please him she is choosing to do it. A counselor is usually a private professional which is expensive. Not only does your friend not want to see one but can she afford one and if you forced her to see one can you afford to pay for it? You say that her boyfriend forces her and then you are trying to force her to see one. Let her make her own decisions - they may be awful decisions, but everything is her choice, she is a grown up. She reaps the rewards or consequences of her decisions, same as we all do. Worry about your own life and make your own life as good as it can be instead of worrying about hers. You choose whether you remain her friend. Make the right decision for you.
