Therapy Session

Therapist Self Care

As therapists, mental health and healing professionals, "self-care" is unfortunately not at the forefront - even though it is crucial for both the therapist and the process of therapy.

In this learning circle for helping professionals, we examine the subject of "Boundaries for a therapist: self-care in therapeutic relationships". This learning circle will be interactive and experiential with the invited guest speaker - a space to bring your concerns, questions and deepen peer learning. 

  • Defining 'boundaries' in a therapeutic space. 

  • The ethics of boundaries. 

  • Socialisation: impact on boundaries basis culture, gender, and nationality.

  • To Cross or Not to Cross: the slippery slope dilemma.

  • Concern with rigid boundaries.

  • Therapeutic contract with clients. 

We welcome the community of therapists, mental health practitioners to join in and make this an enriched learning space.
