How Blogging Has Helped Me Become A Better Therapist

pablo

I have been blogging for 6 years now. I began to blog in 2012 as part of a partnership with a colleague. Hesitantly, I began blogging. I say hesitant because i never considered myself to be a writer. However, as I committed to blogging regularly, I came to enjoy it . I found that it was a great way to talk educated people on healthy relationships, destigmatize mental health, and offers strategies to manage stress and anxiety, among other things.

However, I have been consistently with the blogging. Part busy schedule, and life changes/transitions and then part laziness. I have to be honest! But,  I have since recommitted to blogging. My goal in blogging is to dispel the myths and mysteries surrounding therapy. I know not everyone can come to my office. However, if they come across my writings and decide to go to therapy or if something I wrote resonated with them, well then: SUCCESS.

The more I write the more comfortable I become. The more confident. The more fulfilled. Blogging has helped me become a better therapist in 3  ways:

  1. Learning how to better share the information I know to an audience. Therefore, public speaking has gotten much better!
  2. I am constantly researching and keeping up to date with the latest findings in the field
  3. I am learning new therapeutic interventions                                                                      Something that began as a “must-have” for any small business, has turned into a hobby and an enjoyable part of my weekly schedule. I  thank you for reading and as you to stick around !
