RIght now, I am not currently doing any kind of therapy work, it would be unethical given that I am in a bad place right now. I could not guarantee that I would not be projecting my own problems, and also I would have trouble being convincing in encouraging them (if I feel my own life is useless, I doubt Id be convincing someone else to think otherwise.)
When I did do therapy work, I did fairly well. I di dnot necessarily get "down" listening to other people's stories. You learn to develop a strange boundary--you feel and you are empathetic and genuinely devoted to help, but you don't let it get to you. For me, the struggle was more the responsibility--this person has come to me for help, am I able to do it? I would lose sight that really most of the work is done by the client.
Psychologists work in many environments and capacities. Therapy is only one. I will probably choose a different area to work in than therapy work--in truth it was never my goal anyways.
