Starting out in the mental health field is often intimidating and can leave you feeling isolated, especially when it feels like everyone around you knows what they are doing and you still have some questions about how to handle cases. Have you ever thought of getting help from a professional support system? If you have, then we should talk about getting the right person for the job.
Also known as a consultant, a professional mentor is a vital asset for a new therapist’s career growth. This seasoned individual encourages, supports, and educates while enhancing the confidence and refining the skills of a new mental health therapist like you. A professional consultant discusses different techniques for interventions, aids therapists in overcoming your trials, and reviews your cases. When you become blocked or agitated by your clients, your professional mentor can help unblock you.
Becoming a therapist can be both exciting and exhausting at the same time, years of education and training can be taxing and practicum and internship experiences can lead to burning out and compassion fatigue.
