Lawyers Who Fear Therapy and Why They Shouldn't
When you are in a professional role, one that other people look to for advice, it is difficult to be on the end that is asking for help. And, yet, being the person who carries the responsibility for success for others causes stress, exhaustion and makes many lawyers (and people in all professions) question if they really want to do this. Therapy, when you are with a therapist that fits for you, can be a rebalancing experience, a sounding board. Many people are concerned that therapy will bring out their vulnerabilities and make things worse--so keeping issues locked up is a better solution. Yet, talking to someone who doesn't know you, and is knowledgeable about ways to handle lifes ups and downs can be an empowering experience, one that opens up new perspectives and possibilities.
