Finding Your Therapist In The Wild

Mental Break it Down

18-10-2023 • 38分

Picture this: It's a chilly morning, the scent of fresh coffee wafts through the air, and the anticipation of the upcoming season tingles in the atmosphere. We kick off our conversation reminiscing about our past visit to the pumpkin patch, as we anticipate the new memories awaiting us this year. We discuss the significance of these rituals on our identities as therapists and how they offer us a refreshing perspective outside the therapy room.

Now, have you ever wondered how therapists handle unexpected encounters with clients in their personal life? We share our strategies and experiences with you, navigating the tricky waters of maintaining boundaries outside the therapy room. From attending fairs to popping up on social media, we tackle the complexities of being digital-age therapists. We explore the mixture of excitement and overwhelm this dual life can bring, and the importance of being prepared for it.

Lastly, we bring in some laughter and creativity as we balance authenticity and professionalism in our online presence. We share our thoughts on the importance of humor and self-expression in our work and how they make our lives meaningful and resilient. As we wrap up, we delve into the concept of autonomy in therapeutic relationships, discussing how our beliefs shape our life view and why it's okay for clients to know more about us. So, buckle up and join us as we sip on our coffee, laugh a little, and share some life lessons!
