One of our lofty goals at Intentional Therapist is to change the norms around self-care and how female mental health professionals take care of themselves. To this end, we are passionate about having conversations on the following topics, among others:

  • Why therapists are often not so great at self-care - and what we can do about that
  • Why female mental health professionals in particular need to be intentional about self-care
  • How self-care doesn’t have to take lots of time or energy – and actually can create more time and energy
  • How self-care is about both comfort and discomfort
  • How to make self-care playful, creative, and fun
  • How to incorporate the ‘4 C’s’ of self-care: Connection, Compassion, Courage, and Creativity

Please feel free to connect with us directly for more details.

We have also had the honour and pleasure of being interviewed ourselves on numerous podcasts.  We hope you will explore some of these past interviews below.
