Being a therapist is one of the most rewarding jobs in the world. People come to you with seemingly insoluble difficulties, and with your help they begin to find ways through, round or over what had seemed insurmountable obstacles. Their lives change. (Not all of them, of course. You're not a miracle worker.) But satisfying though it is, therapy work is not immune from ‘work-related stress'.
What are the sources of burnout for therapists?
There are three main reasons why therapists can find themselves getting over-exhausted and emotionally weighed down in connection with their work. The first is workload (just like any other job). By definition, therapists want to help, but enthusiasm can lead them to try to see too many clients. Therapy is demanding work, and it's important to find ways of ‘refuelling' and keeping a healthy balance.
The second reason is the nature of the clients. We are all affected by the people we associate with, and if you're always associating with people who are stuck in the clouds of depression and anxiety, it's easy to get ‘infected' by their gloom and doom. Even if you know all about how depression and anxiety work. A therapist who hasn't trained in how to ‘inoculate' themselves can soon find themselves in difficulties.
The third source of trouble might be termed personal mismanagement. Therapists (good therapists) devote a great deal of time to helping their clients get their basic needs (for attention, security, stimulus, connection, meaning, and so on) met in healthy and positive ways. But sometimes even the best therapists forget that they need to meet their own basic needs healthily. Which is to say, somewhere other than in their therapy room.
