How I Feel About Being a Psychotherapist

Posted on 1 May, 2015 at 11:00

Today I will practice what I preach and send gratitude out to the universe!


I am so lucky to be a therapist. I knew I wanted to be a therapist from the age of about 12. I was reading a book called “I Never Promised You a Rose Garden”, by Joanne Greenberg (1964) when my calling was revealed to me. This is a semi-autobiographical novel about a young (teenage) woman that spends four years in a mental institution. Her struggle and hard work is guided by a brilliant Psychiatrist. It was not an easy struggle. It was also not a medication-based intervention. I remember knowing that I wanted to work with people who struggle with mental health issues. I want to stand beside and support people while they look for the source(s) of their issues and challenge themselves to find healthy ways to live every day.


I feel honoured to be a Psychotherapist that works on-on-one, with couples and families to support them is finding health together and be a witness as they transform and find their way to love. I feel gratitude for being a part of the transformative energy in the universe that we all possess and can tap into.


I have a passion for human stories and am awe-struck by the ongoing strength it takes to battle mental health issues. I am humbled by you and feel so lucky to have this calling. I feel spiritually fed and revitalized by this journey and pleased my clients are a part of it.


Thank you!!

I wish to show some appreciation to the writer for bailing me out of this crisis. As a result of looking out through the world-wide-web and obtaining recommendations which were not productive, I believed my entire life was done. Living minus the answers to the issues you have solved as a result of your good short post is a serious case, as well as ones that would have badly damaged my entire career if I had not noticed the website. Your primary knowledge and kindness in dealing with a lot of stuff was priceless. I'm not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a step like this. I am able to at this moment look forward to my future. Thank you very much for this specialized and amazing guide. I won't be reluctant to recommend your blog to any person who desires assistance about this problem.

My wife and i got ecstatic Jordan managed to carry out his survey from the precious recommendations he obtained through the blog.

Thank you for the whole lot!
