Allowing positive cognitions for our clients and for ourselvesJul 01, 2021
When we talk about wealth, success and boundaries in our field, it can feel like a controversial topic. And that's because, for therapists, tons of negative cognitions have been assigned to our financial accomplishments...
If we don’t accept insurance or our rates are “too high,” we’re demanding.
If our generosity isn’t deemed substantial enough, we’re unfriendly.
And if we attempt to create offers that financially benefit us, we’re greedy.
if we had a client come into a session with these negative cognitions, we’d buzz that right out of the room.
So why don’t we allow ourselves that same shift in our mindsets?
Maybe it’s the exhaustive language of rate shaming or the illusion that we should always be available to help everyone or possibly, it’s the fallacy that our one and only goal should be for our practice to be “full.”
Perhaps it’s all of these things and more.
Whatever the cause, the problematic culture that shapes what is deemed “appropriate” in terms of our success is.... well, it’s bullshit.
I want for other EMDR clinicians what I have discovered for myself: protecting my time, being intentionally generous, and creating high-value offers doesn’t mean that I’ve traded off what it means to be a good therapist.
I’m done letting anyone else determine what success in my practice looks like.
And you should be, too.
If you’re ready to shift your mindset and turn your practice into something that serves you financially, it’s time to apply for your spot in The Consultation Program.
