I dont want to get into this cvonversation too deeply, but I just have to say...

as someone who does counseling/therapy for a living myself... I feel that I'm very authentic with the people I work with. Maybe even moreso than in my "real" life. While I do limit what I share and show about myself personally, the thins I do say come straight from a deep part of me. No, I wouldnt do it every single day without being paid.. thats probably true. But I do genuinely care about each person I work with and while I probably dont feel the connection in the same way they do, I do feel it. The work definitely is about the client and nothing a therapist does can fix someone or get them somewhere they arent willing to go themselves.. but sometimes people need a hand in order to look deep inside themselves and take those steps. It can be very scary and a supportive, nonjudgmental (and that's the key, as it isnt always available in friends/family/etc) person backing you up can be very helpful for some. It doesnt work for everyone.... but I know I do good work, and I know my therapists have helped me to do good work with myself as well.

I dont mean to say you're wrong. Only that it isnt true for everyone. If it feels inauthentic and unhelpful to you, theres really nothing wrong with that. We're all different.
