What holds you back from being the therapist you want to be?

Is it fear of criticism or judgement from your peers as you step outside the mould of what your training suggested you “should be”?

Or is it fear of criticism, judgement or doubt from your parents, your partner?

Perhaps you are the first person in your family to work in a business or hold a tertiary qualification?

Is it beliefs about self-development or your potential through your childhood experiences about who you are, what you can do?

Is it not earning enough in your current job to do the training you want because you work for low-fee?

Is it limiting beliefs about the benefits of investing in yourself and putting more money into your training?

Whatever it is, it will block you if you don’t tend to it. You don’t have to let it control you. You don’t have to stay the same.

It may not be the battle or marathon you thought, or a mountain to climb.

It may be as easy as giving yourself permission to sidestep or pivot in a new direction. Or it may be an endurance and strength building quest.

It can be just making one more decision instead of staying stuck.

This is a message I took from the documovie “Touching the Void”, a homework activity suggested by my therapist when I was very stuck last year. The abandoned climber’s attitude was “I can keep making one more decision, or I can stay here and die”

Either way. It’s worth it. You’re worth it.
