How to stop comparing yourself to other therapists with Jane Travis

038: How to stop comparing yourself to other therapists


I’ve been known to play the comparison game in my life before, but it’s never actually helped me because comparisons just leave us feeling either superior or inferior and there’s no benefit to either of those. 

So in this episode, I explore the impact of making comparisons, and how destructive it can be to your confidence, self-esteem and self-belief. 

In this episode we explore:

  • Why comparisons aren’t good for you
  • Why comparisons aren’t based on facts
  • Ways you can step away from it
  • The power of staying in your own lane

So if you’ve ever been caught up by comparisonitis - and I bet you have at some point! - consider the impact and do something more positive instead.
