What are your limitations as a practitioner?
Can we accept the fact that we don’t know, either as therapists or as clients? Our work demands acceptance not only of our strengths but also of our limitations and it may mean that we have to be content at times with an uncomfortable or unexpected version of ourselves. The therapist that we saw ourselves becoming at the beginning of our career, may have to mutate into someone more humble, who is content to be doing the best they can. Accepting that we can’t change everybody’s symptoms or lives for the better is hard, but necessary.
