Our expert says:
Sometimes, like the proverbial last straw and the camel's back, it's not one specific stress, but a combination of them, that just exceeds our ability to cope. The counsellor should be able to help her decide when it is time to get back to normal life, and counselling ought to include not only some degree of repair work on current problems, but also include some self-defense and protective lessons in how to avoid this recurring.
The situhation sounds somwhat artificial --- if she is encouraged to say how she feels, that shoul NOT be at the expense of others not being allowed to comment --- that's no way to prepare her for resuming life in the real world. Similarly, a prolonged period with no responsibilities can encourage invalidism rather than resumption of normal adult responsibilities. I would have some doubts about the skills of the counsellor involved, who sounds rather as though he/she is tryin to maintain the status quo rather than helping her resume adult life
