Will going to see a counselor stop me from getting a teaching Job?
I think I may need to go get counseling for a issue. Mabey not, but if I do, do you think that I won't be able to get a teacher job because this will be on my records when they check it. I don't want to be out of a position because of they think I have mental problems. I'm not dangerous, just need to talk. My mom keep telling me not to go, what should I do? Again, I may not need it, but am considering it mabey.

No. You don't have to disclose this when you are looking for a job. They will not legally have access to this information unless you give them access. No one has any business knowing you went for counseling unless they are involved in your care in some way. It would actually be against the law for them to get this... More

No, and how would it be on your records? Its not a criminal thing to do. If anything else, if asked, its a positive thing, you sought out for healthy help in order to better yourself.
