I like Gimme's suggestion: let the counselor know what you're thinking, that you'd like more direction, more hand-holding right now - at least until you are able to be more self-directing.
And until then, maybe something that has been helpful to me might work with you. When I go in, I try to have something specific, one idea or topic that I would like to expand on with her help. Something concrete that has come to mind a few times as a result of previous work or what's happening in the relationship. Often it is primarily me talking, but sometimes she'll have an observation that is comforting or leads me to think of things in a different way.
And supporting Gimme again - have patience. Be gentle with yourself and the process. It's hard to wait for therapeutic "magic" to work, particularly on yourself, but you'll know with time whether you're experiencing the changes you want to see or if you need to think about a different therapist.
Take good care.
