Going through the pros and cons of being a therapist was actually a good exercise for me! It helped me make sure I am still doing what I love and that the pros outweigh the cons. Hooray I still love what I do and my pros really outweigh my cons!
We don’t make a lot of money, we work odd hours in order to accommodate our clients, we have to take care of ourselves regularly! I know it isn’t a real con, but it’s definitely something we need to take into consideration prior to becoming a mental health professional.
It is so incredibly rewarding to see your clients grow into the person you knew they could be, and being there during that time is just amazing. The second pro is that the work is actually fulfilling! I get to help people and ever after a long day of work, I feel good and like I have helped out in some way. The third is that the work always changes. Each week, each hour with people is different, so I don’t ever get bored or annoyed with what I do. The fourth and final pro I will talk about today is that it is always a challenge! Not only do my clients challenge me to learn more, figure out more about their issues or concerns, but each and every one of you challenges me to be a better therapist. I hope you found this helpful and please share! xox
