I think that all counselors MUST have an outlet that honors their spirit. Counselors must remember to take time for themselves.
I honor myself by taking photographs. I like the idea of being able to capture a moment of time, and share it with others. I would like to start sharing those photos with you.
You may honor yourself by gardening, painting, singing, playing an instrument, knitting, baking, running (ug!), meditating, or any practice that makes you feel good about yourself.
Counselors must model self-care. If you aren’t doing this, you cannot be an effective therapist.
