Being a Good Friend Doesn’t Mean You can Become a Good Therapist
Keywords:therapist; patient; psychologist; client; friends
Many people go with the instinctive thought of becoming therapists to heal themselves,
which is good on the one hand, but not optimal for the professional environment on the other. If I’ve
found that I’m a good friend, how do I know that I can also become a good therapist? Starting from this
question there are a few things to consider before we hit the road. To practice therapy is not to study
aspects that you personally like and then apply them to clients, expecting to get great results, plus at
some point it can reach the height of insanity “to do the same, expecting different results”, and it is not
indicated, because each person is completely different, comes with different requests, and therapists
have to adapt.
