Questioning your decision to become a therapist? Wondering if Private Practice is for you? What are passive and multiple streams of income for the Clinical Population?
It’s not your first time with a difficult patient – someone who seems to, in one word, one look, make you question why you decided to become a therapist in the first place.
Not sure what is your “niche” or how to start your business? What populations interest you?!
The sessions don’t seem to be getting easier… and the patient is losing patience. She came to you for help, and she doesn’t feel she’s getting it.
You know what the books say. You know what the treatment plan for this client should be and you know that you can provide a safe space for your clients? Imposter Syndrome is setting in and you feel like an imposter. What should you do?
But every session feels like it could be the last one—and you’re not sure if it’s defeat or relief you feel at the prospect.
There’s no shame in admitting you need help and asking for guidance, extra attention to the process of your work, or assistance with a roadmap to your future!
Is this what is meant by imposter syndrome – where we question every decision we make and hope no one learns we are a fraud?
Going to work and feeling alone with challenging patients creates a cloud of fear.
I deeply understand the need for ongoing consultation.
A good supervisor or clinical consultation can have dramatic positive changes to the life of your practice and patients.
