You’ve always loved your job. But now you’re feeling helpless, overwhelmed, stressed out and fed up
You are almost ready to throw in the towel and get another career. You know you can’t go on like this anymore. Your job is taking such a toll on you. You go home exhausted daily; not wanting to deal with people for the rest of the night.
Could it just be the stress of Covid 19? Will you feel better when this settles down? There has always been calmer and more chaotic times. It comes with the territory.
You don’t have the energy to go for a walk after work. You can’t (or don’t feel comfortable) going to the gym. You know that meditation is supposed to be helpful but it is so hard to turn your brain off and focus on the meditation. All of this adds to the frustration instead of helping you feel better. It’s hard to practice what you preach. And because you’re having a hard time with it, it makes it that much harder for you to talk with your clients about the benefits of meditation, exercise, grounding, gratitude, etc.
You’re ready to take back control and feel that passion again
You’re ready to grow as a therapist or find that spark again and be who you know you are deep down. You came into this field for a reason. There once was such passion and enthusiasm. You could take on the world. It wasn’t even that long ago that you felt excited to go to work. You knew the value you provided every day. You saw the change in people’s behaviors and attitudes. It gave you hope.
It is hard to hold space for our clients through shared trauma. It is hard to maintain the outward appearance of confidence when it feels like your world is also crumbling. In only 1.5 hours, you will get to the root of compassion fatigue and burnout and you will come away with your own resiliency plan to stall, prevent, or come back from compassion fatigue or burnout.
We are in this together and we will get through this together. We know that the skills work, but sometimes we lose focus of the skills. Sometimes it is easier to tell someone what to do than to do it ourselves. When we fall into the clutches of stress, sometimes it takes someone else to pull us out. Refocusing our efforts on ourselves will help us refocus our energy for our clients as well.
I know you are a good therapist. I know you want the best for your clients. I know you want to portray yourself as strong and capable. It is what we do. We help our clients through very difficult times holding their pain until they can take care of themselves.
Thank you for all you do! You are valuable and you are needed!
Thank you for taking the time to take care of yourself so you can take care of others. It is time for you to take control of your inner strength and bring back that passion and spark!
