I highly agree with you Astris. I had a therapist all throughout my time working as a therapist. I believe it should be a requirement while therapist’s are in training, as well. Unfortunately, despite the self-care and support systems I had in place, being a therapist was still very challenging, and sadly for several of my peers, they buckled under this pressure, and committed suicide. I am glad this was inspiring for you to read! I need to write more about being a healer as well as the mental health field in general. Your inspiration is inspiring me in return! Thank you!
