I have actually recently set up a brand-new method as a psychotherapist which brought about a conversation with my companion in the practice regarding our fees. This then caused ideas about how to value our job.
My companion had actually heard webinar on marketing that had talked about various sorts of clients and also the relevance of targeting one’s service to a specific kind of client. Then we determined that we were not targeting the spending plan segment however were most curious about the top quality sector. The webinar was an advertising exercise for an advertising workshop that I ultimately participated in.
At this advertising and marketing workshop there was a section on valuing your work. As somebody that grew up in a nation that had universal healthcare I had certain beliefs about paying for health solutions. In my existing nation Australia there were for many years many health and wellness solutions with no costs. These were strengthened when I worked in a public healthcare facility linked clinic where most services were given without cost.
The workshop presenter suggested that a lot of psycho therapists do not value their solutions really extremely. My thoughts are that for me this was because of these types of formative impacts as well as my own issues around self-confidence and also self sacrifice.
I follow the schema therapy design where there are 2 ‘schemas’ connected with self-confidence, defectiveness and also failure. Defectiveness runs at even more of a subconscious level whereas individuals tend to be really aware of their ideas that they are a failure. I assume both of these are a challenge for me as well as although I have significant understanding into them they still have substantial influence on my sensations as well as behavior.
Most people in caring professions have a pattern of self sacrifice where they place their needs additional to their clients. In order to have the ability to care for others one needs to care for oneself. If I am weary I do not provide high quality child therapists.
There was some discussion in the workshop of individual aspects such as self esteem and self sacrifice and after that an additional exercise. The workout consisted of considering a client with a specific problem and imaging being that client and also what their answer would be to what it costs. Would you pay to earn this trouble vanish. There was conversation of the costs to the customer of the trouble and then the costs to others in that person’s life including their company or company. A day of rest work can be crucial to some services and consequently fairly expensive when missed.
