I’m Qualified to Practice Therapy, But My Ethics Do Not Yet Align | by Alexander M. Combstrong | Happy Brain Club | May, 2021
—- I I am mostly re-posting this post because, for whatever reason, the blogger does not allow comments.
“…hello again yeah I’m just happy the coyotes are alive when are you over there yeah because I think those are the puppies that that just came up in the past year but I’m just happy they’re alive because you know it’s cool for the wildlife to be here you know and I mean — I know — how long you’ve been here ? because there used to be deer walked through here yeah like not even you may be the last time I saw it was like six years ago but there’s no more deer is no more deer and there’s to be raccoon…”
My voice dictation was still going on this dog walk when I crossed paths with someone and it printed what I was saying to her 😄
Anyways, yes. Really the only reason I am re-posting this post is to tell the person of this blog that they don’t allow comments, or if for some reason it won’t allow me to comment on their post.
so then, my Small comment would be that I’m not sure this person who is talking about being a therapist really comprehend what it is to be a therapist. Perhaps that’s why in the past few years in the United States, we are starting to make stricter rules about who gets to counsel someone. in the state I live in just even three years ago, all you had to do was say that you’re a counselor and you could charge someone whatever you wanted to to be their therapist.
You wouldn’t even have to have a degree or anything.
and, sure, at route there is something genuinely therapeutic about just listening to someone and then giving them advice about what you think and having a conversation about it. It’s very therapeutic just to have a conversation with someone.
Now, however, I have been getting educated in counseling, I am actually understanding a little bit more.
Maybe A good analogy is playing guitar. Yeah, I can learn four cords or six cords and maybe not play very well but play some songs and hang out with a bunch of people and we all have a really great time. But somehow when you hear someone who really knows how to play guitar play a song, there’s something different going on. I mean, The analogy only goes so far, so… oh well.
I like the post and I like his sentiment and I agree.
but it threw me off a little bit when s/he said something like if s/he had a depressed patient or s/he had to go act for the new Game of Thrones, how would s/he decide, or something like that.
That makes me wonder what s/he thinks being a therapist is. what exactly kind of therapy is s/he talking about?
anyways. Hey blogger: Open your comments, please! 😛
