Do therapists need therapy? Yes, they need it just as much as everyone else - perhaps even more so. The truth is that constantly hearing about others’ challenges can bring up emotional and mental trauma in therapists. And while therapists may have an enhanced ability to deal with life’s challenges, they still need assistance to support their mental health from time to time.

If you’re a therapist who is struggling, the right thing to do is reach out for help. Whether you are located in downtown Santa Barbara, the suburbs of Santa Barbara, other nearby places such as Ventura, Lompoc, or anywhere else in California, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Therapy for Therapists: Reasons You May Need Therapy

For any therapist who is on the fence regarding whether they should seek therapy, here are some common reasons mental health professionals may need therapy for therapists:

  • You have ongoing mental health issues that you’ve neglected to address.
  • You feel stress related to everyday life or burnout from your profession.
  • Hearing about your patients’ issues is starting to affect your mental or emotional health.
  • You have experienced a traumatic event or circumstance and are finding it difficult to cope.
  • You think your own role as a therapist can improve from therapy with another professional.

If you’re dealing with any of the above issues, you should consider therapy for therapists. To learn more about therapy for therapists, read licensed therapist Rachel DuPaul’s story about why therapists need therapy too.
