HELP! I Just Discovered My Therapist is Just a Human Being!!! Should a Therapist be an Authority Figure or A Human Being?
As a therapist I sometimes encounter patients who come to me seeking an authority figure. Now don’t misunderstand…I have worked for several decades as a therapist, hypnotherapist and life coach, helping adults and children face difficult behaviors, thoughts and uncomfortable emotions.
As a human being however, I too have thoughts, feelings, fears vulnerabilities, sensitivities and demands. So how am I different from my clients)?
Do you feel you wasted your time over the last year? Its the beginning of a New Year. If you’re like most people, you’ve taken a few moments (before drinking yourself into a NYE Revelers Oblivion) to pause and look back on your accomplishments over the last year. Perhaps you can look back with pride at a job well done, at actions taken to advance your career, nurture your relationships, gain new skills, or invest in your future.
But for many, reviewing the last year leaves them cold. As they look back, they realize “What the hell did I do with my time? Where did that year go? I’m not signficantly closer to my dreams, goals or aspirations. How did I get into this position?
Part of the problem is a lack of awareness of TIME–and with that lack comes a poor use of that precious resource.
