“YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’VE GOT TIL IT'S GONE.”
(Song lyrics , Big Yellow Taxi by Joni Mitchell)
(This line just made itself known to me as I reflected upon the theme below. )
I am hoping to hear from anyone who would be interested in being part of a group, whose focus would be to reflect upon the impact of stopping or reducing their counselling/ supervision work . Perhaps you are calling this transition “retirement” ?
I began paid counselling work, age 37, in West Lothian after completing the first Jordanhill College/Strathclyde University Person Centred Diploma in 1993. Now, age 65, living in East Lothian & am winding down work –wise. I have a handful of private clients & 5 supervisees.
I am working much less these days, playing lots of tennis & have become increasingly curious about the personal, social, spiritual & financial impact upon myself of being less involved therapeutically with others.
My ‘ways of being’ are under review & I'd like to share this ‘refreshment’ process with others who may be similarly intrigued.
I’d be delighted to hear from anyone who is exploring their process of separation from their therapeutic role. Whether to create a group or just have a phone/ zoom chat or a one- off coffee somewhere nice!
Thanks & Best wishes to everyone as we emerge from the constraints & changes of Covid Lockdown.
