Have you ever received counselling? Are you curious about how counsellors work? Today's sharing is from Dr. Orna Guralnik, a counsellor specialising in relationships. She mentions that an important part of her job is setting strict boundaries and not letting cases at work affect her or her life affect her counselling. Perhaps we can also take this into account and set clear boundaries in our lives and our work.

By the way, if you are feeling unhappy for a long time and have nowhere to talk about it, consider talking to a counsellor. As for how to choose, the simplest criterion is to make you feel comfortable.

If you find today's sharing helpful, why not share it with your friends?

I was drawn to working with couples because intimate love relationships (or the refusal to engage in them) is such an important driver and experience for most people.

In individual work, much of the work is reflective and contemplative, while couples quickly enact their issues in real time as opposed to thinking and talking about it.

Plus, I create space to support my mind by reading fiction, meditating and practicing yoga.

Being a psychoanalyst means one is always working to deepen and expand the mind.

Boundaries are key to a proper psychoanalytic practice—good boundaries between analyst and patient, so you’re not flooding your patient with your own “stuff,” and vice versa, and boundaries between the space of therapeutic work and the rest of life.
