Therapists are Human Too

As therapists, our clients often believe that we have our lives all the way together and if anything does happen we know just the way to handle it. In reality, that’s not true. A lot of therapists have therapists of their own! We struggle with anxiety, depression, imposter syndrome… a lot of the things our clients come to us for. 

Recognizing and acknowledging therapists' own mental health struggles is important for several reasons. Firstly, it humanizes us, reminding our clients that we are individuals with our own vulnerabilities and challenges. Secondly, it highlights the importance of self-care and boundary-setting within our profession. We have to prioritize our own well-being to effectively support our clients. 

Therapists' personal experiences with mental health can also enhance our empathy and understanding in our work. Having experienced our own struggles, we may have insights and perspectives that resonate with our clients. 

As we celebrate Mental Health Awareness Month, let's remember to extend compassion and support to the therapists in our lives as well. It’s important to remember that supporting those who support others is essential for creating a healthy and resilient community.
