Every therapist needs a therapist.
Transference & countertransference are essential treatment tools, which takes self-knowledge to use. Without this, it could be hard to sort out someone else's issues from your own. Going to therapy as a therapist normalizes being in therapy, relieves stress & can give you a perspective on what therapy techniques work and do not work for you. Therapeutic variety is closely tied to your self-knowledge & willingness to self-reflect. Using your own perceptions as sensitive instruments in your therapy work, can help you hone & develop your clinical skill set.
