“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping." To this day, especially in times of "disaster," I remember my mother's words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers-so many caring people in this world.” Fred Rogers
As helping professionals, it is our calling to make a positive impact on the world and support those in need; however, this important work can also take a toll on our own well-being. It is all too easy to prioritize the needs of others over our own self-care, which can lead to feelings of burnout, fatigue, and even vicarious trauma.
But it's important to remember that in order to continue to effectively serve others, we must also prioritize our own well-being. That's where counseling can be so beneficial. By providing a safe and supportive space to process and heal, counseling can help you find respite from the demands of your profession and enable you to continue to live out your calling with energy and compassion.
At Full Bloom, we understand the unique challenges that helping professionals face, and we are here to support you on your journey towards healing and self-care. As therapists ourselves, we know firsthand the importance of regular therapy in maintaining our own well-being and effectiveness in our work.
If you have been considering counseling and are ready to take the next step in your self-care journey, we encourage you to reach out. We would be honored to be a part of your journey towards healing, self-discovery, and continued growth in your profession.
