I hear of many, many people volunteering long after they’ve qualified. Sometimes it's a genuine desire to ‘give back’ to the community, which is admirable.
However, sometimes it's because of something else, something to do with fear and that step into taking private clients feels terrifying.
So what do we do? We put up blocks and tell ourselves we can’t because X, Y and Z - and I know this to be true, because I’ve done it too!
So it’s time to do what we do with therapy clients: explore those blocks, and remove them.
