I wanted this book to address therapists’ real-world concerns, so for the ‘big finale’ I sent out a plea for questions and these are some of the ones that came back. It's my version of a kind of 'hypnotic agony aunt'!
The areas covered by this section include:
Getting the most out of supervision
Don't let your empathy get you down
Questions from the front line (real-life questions from real-life therapists!)
Am I losing my touch?.
When enquiries don't lead to bookings.
An ex-client, who came to me for weight loss and actually put on more weight is praising me on Facebook.
A client wants me to see her 10-year-old son. I have no experience in treating children.
I only like to see women clients. Can I do this?
I have been seeing six clients a day and am finding it difficult to switch off.
How much self-care is enough?
How can I incorporate self-care into my routine without feeling guilty?
How do I balance being empathetic with being an effective business-person?
