Wellness and Therapy for Coaches, Counsellors & Therapists

We know you're tired and you're holding a lot.
We're here for our colleagues too.

There’s the assumption that coaches, counsellors & therapists already have the tools they need to manage their own mental health and well-being. But when you’re the person everyone relies on to be strong and stable, where do you go when things get tough? You’re only human, and humans need a helping hand from time-to-time. Like any other industry, you may be facing challenges managing work-life balance and weighty responsibilities, not to mention carrying your clients’ stories and making regular ethical decisions.

We get it. And that’s why we’re here for you.

At YTherapy, we understand that even the most experienced of us can still benefit from having our own personal guide. Having an outside perspective can be helpful and healthy. We’re here to help you keep safe and well. And your clients will benefit too – when you look out for you.

Team Wide Mental Health Support for Coaches, Counsellors & Therapists

Your team takes on a lot. But all of those thoughts and feelings have to go somewhere. Where do your employees go when they need support? 

Create your own in-house wellness and mental health support with YTherapy.

No one’s immune to mental health challenges.

How often do you find it difficult to take your own advice? 

As coaches, counsellors and therapists, it may be expected of us to practise what we preach. But the reality is that life has its challenges for all of us.

You don’t have to know everything all the time. And that’s okay.

Common mental health challenges in coaches, counsellors & therapists may look like:

  • Difficulty ‘switching off’ from work 
  • Feeling isolated due to confidentiality restrictions 
  • Trouble with ethical dilemmas and potential consequences

We’re on your team. And we’re on the same page as you.

We all need someone in our corner. Your mental health and wellness is just as valid as your clients’.

There’s no shame in seeking help and support.

Therapy Services for Coaches, Counsellors & Therapists

You deserve to be supported with your mental health just as much as your clients. You’re still a human being with a personal life and professional challenges. Counselling for coaches, counsellors & therapists can help. 

Working together, we’ll look at how things are affecting you and how you’re coping. With our mind & body approach to mental health and wellness, we’ll help you get to the root of your challenges and equip you with tools to build your resilience.

Anxiety Therapy for Coaches, Counsellors & Therapists

You may be able to recognise the signs of anxiety, but you may be feeling powerless to do anything about it. Just because this is your area of work, doesn’t mean you’re expected to know exactly how to help yourself at all times. It’s perfectly normal to not know when you’re ‘in it’ yourself. 

Engaging with anxiety therapy is one of the first steps you can take to start making a difference to your mental health and well-being.

Signs and symptoms of anxiety in coaches, counsellors & therapists may include:

  • Feeling as though you can’t ever show ‘weakness’ or vulnerability 
  • Experiencing seemingly ‘random’ panic attacks  
  • Feeling like your brain is ‘cluttered’ and you have trouble focusing 
  • Feeling as though you have to suppress your own feelings 
  • Worrying about whether you’re doing the right thing and whether you’re doing enough

Stress and Burnout Therapy for Coaches, Counsellors & Therapists

You may be worrying about specific clients, compliance and regulations, not to mention balancing your own personal life on top of your work responsibilities. 

Stress and burnout can easily happen to coaches, counsellors & therapists. YTherapy is here to support you through the demands of your job and your home life.

Signs and symptoms of stress and burnout in coaches, counsellors & therapists may include:

  • Holding a large and unmanageable caseload
  • Having little or not enough time for notes, reflection and self-care
  • Carrying your ‘clients’ stuff’ into your home space
  • Feeling like you can’t say no, reduce your workload or take a break because “my clients need me”
  • Continually moving the goalpost and fueling your imposter syndrome

We'll be right here when you need us.

Trauma Therapy for Coaches, Counsellors & Therapists

You’re a human being with your own life experiences (scars included). Just because you’re a mental health and wellness expert, doesn’t mean you’re invincible to stress, trauma and loss. Nor does it mean you should have to work it all out on your own.

If your personal trauma is getting in the way of your ability to help your clients, it might be time to process these events with another compassionate therapist who can be a guiding light for you.

YTherapy is here to help you move forward positively, both personally and professionally.

Signs and symptoms of trauma and PTSD in coaches, counsellors & therapists may include:

  • Absorbing, over-empathising and over-identifying with your clients
  • Avoiding working with certain types of clients or addressing difficult issues
  • Confusing or blurring the two roles and perspectives, which you know can be risky
  • Struggling to compartmentalise and separate from client issues  
  • Getting lost in your own personal stories when feeling triggered by your clients’ stories

Secondary Trauma or Vicarious Trauma Therapy for Coaches, Counsellors and Therapists

You’ll know more than most about the full impact of being exposed to trauma on a regular basis. Without a dedicated space to process stressful and traumatic material, things can start to build up. Even routine work may begin to feel harder.

So who’s looking after you when you need that extra layer of protection from vicarious trauma? 

With the support of YTherapy, we’ll help you digest your thoughts and feelings and build your inner-strength and resilience to withstand the full impact of secondary trauma.

  • Adding the issues your clients share to those you are already dealing with in your life
  • Becoming emotionally attached to individual clients 
  • Experiencing emotional fatigue, feeling disconnected and having difficulty empathising 
  • Feeling bystander guilt or shame
  • Experiencing intrusive or repetitive dreams about specific cases
