No matter what age you were when you decided to enter into this noble, challenging, and highly responsible profession, you made the decision that you wanted to be of service to others. You have made it your life’s mission to lift up, empower and support countless number of clients who walk through your door every day, feeling broken, a bit lost on their journey, and needing someone such as yourself, to have a place to leave a bit of their pain with.
THE COST OF CARING – WHAT ABOUT ME?
Recognizing your own limits is one of the best ways to serve and show up, for your clients. As a group, therapists and helping professionals in general, have a tendency to neglect their own needs as we care for others. Though we are advocates for therapy and know full well that all sorts of people need support – we can stigmatize the need for us as professionals, to ask for help.
Here are some of the challenges along my own journey. Do any of them sound familiar to you?
- I didn’t find joy in my work as I once used to.
- I lacked the energy I once had going into my sessions and felt depleted once I got home.
- I was tired of “giving”.
- The line between me as a helping professional and me as a wife, mother, sister, friend, became blurred.
- I wondered if this all there is to my life and career?
- I had difficulty recognizing “change” in my clients.
- After all the years as a therapist, I couldn’t identify my “gains” as a result.
- I wasn’t fully showing up in front of my client or in my personal life.
- I question a new career?
GET BACK TO BASICS. BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO MAKE IN YOUR LIFE AND WITH YOUR CLIENTS
- After focusing on everyone and everything else for the past few decades it’s time to rediscover YOUR dreams (or create new ones ) and get busy living them!
- Learn to shift your mindset and gain a set of new skills. You may actually think of your work in a different way that frees up the other part of your life to reap the results you have wanted.
- Get clarity on yourself, your wants, your role as a therapist or how you see yourself re-inventing what you want your role to be.
- Find renewed purpose.
- Stop being stuck in indecision and take hold of my hand to help you move forward.
- Learn about what may no longer work for you, what you’ve outgrown or what doesn’t give you “joy”.
