Take care of yourself. Well, that is just so easy for others to say. They may well be offering to help you out but they can have no idea of what you are going through. Unless of course, they have been through what you might appear to be going through. But even so, they can be of no help whatsoever unless of course, they are already playing an indirect or, indeed, direct role in the offered clinical mental health services in savannah, ga.
But as qualified professionals or fully trained volunteers, they need to tread carefully. As any clinical (professional) therapist might venture to tell you, it is necessary for them to keep at arm’s length in terms of shedding emotions. Of course, it goes without saying that the patient is allowed to be emotional whilst in therapy. Why else do you usually find a box of tissues in the therapy room? And a couch for the patient to lie back on.
This is no stereotype, to be sure. But then the onus on the presiding therapist goes further. It falls to her to make sure that the prescribed scheduled consultations do not lose its required direction. Patients must never be distressed at the length of these therapy sessions. They are deliberately kept short to no more than forty-five minutes. This is designed to ensure that the conversational thread if you will remains qualitative.
Time is off the utmost essence although it has to be said that the therapist will not be rushing the patient. If more therapy sessions need to be prescribed and scheduled, then so be it. The patient must want to get better so she should at least embrace this prolongation of her therapy.
