    Random thoughts about therapists

    ok here's what i have been wondering. what motivates a person to become a therapist? what percentage are men vs women? what qualities should a person have to make a good therapist? do therapists get sick of their job? (i suppose anyone could get tired of their job regardless of what it is). is it a draining job or rewarding or just like anything else does it depend on the day? does it get boring after doing it for years on end?

    Re: Random thoughts about therapists

    Hi Baseballcap,

    Many things can motivate a person to become a therapist. I was told that I would make a good one because I was a good listener. Being a therapist seemed to fit naturally with me. I believe there are far more women in the field now then in the past. Qualities of a good therapist include but are not limited to: being geniune, being an active listener, being present and providing unconditional positive regard. I do not get tired or sick of my job. I enjoy my work and my clients. I don't find my job draining or boring. I don't take my work home with me either. I hope I answered your questions?
