It is a common misconception that therapists don't need therapy. That they have been blessed with all of the answers, and that only those in pain need to seek help. This couldn't be further from the truth.
As a therapist, and an empath, not only do I deal with - and feel - the pain of others, but I also have my own life circumstances and feelings to navigate. At times I don't have a compass, at times my map gets rained on and smudges, and there are moments when I feel like I am walking alone... but I am not.
In order to help my clients, I need to continuously heal myself both emotionally and energetically. In order for my horses to feel safe in sessions, I need to be living authentically and without discrepancy. I do this with the help of my therapist.
There is no shame in asking for help, no matter your age, your issues, or your profession. Only when you receive the help that you need to flourish in your life may you be empowered to help someone else. Thankyou Mel at Heavensabove Helensburgh for empowering me.
