The results showed that the relationship between sexual self-disclosure to therapist and gender consciousness is a weak but positive relationship (Pearson and Kendal tau correlation coefficients: r=0.15 and 0.12, respectively). There was a significant but negative relationship between students’ sexual self-disclosure and the therapist sex (r= -0.52 and b =0.37).
