Practice of Being Seen
About This Show
Everyone is driven by the basic human need to be seen, heard, and understood. What does it means to really see ourselves and the people and events around us? How does that influence how we show us and how we ask to be seen? Teaming up as a relationship therapist and a storytelling coach, we’ll be diving into how our stories shape our relationships and how our relationships shape our stories. Through interviews and solo sessions, we will be opening a space for discovery and healing.

Are you willing to do hard work? This is the question that all of our clients are asking us in one way or another, whether or not they say it in so many words. Compassionate therapists are so ready to answer “Yes!” Even with that willingness to do the hard work of navigating relationships, trauma, attachments, etc. it can take a toll on your confidence. We need to put into practice the skills we learned to help our clients to reflect on our own lives. We need confidence, self assurance, and hope. This week, Margaret Thompson, LCSW shares her journey through feelings of imposter syndrome and doubt. We will take a good look at the skills you need to navigate trauma and attachment, and then zoom out to see how those skills from your practice can change your life. Margaret wants to give you energy and confidence to put your “Yes” on the table for your client, to walk into the room completely at ease with yourself.

Margaret in her wisdom and confidence will teach us the way back to feelings of hope and of home!
