Video Blog: Going Live on YouTube

Posted on 26 November, 2013 at 7:52
I finally bit the bullet and posted a video on You Tube!!
 
WHY?
 
Well....having given this some thought I reckon if people are thinking about counselling or therapy and are looking at what's on offer locally then to see and hear me might ( or might not) help.
 
Being a therapist I am used to be with a client or group of people, interacting and working together on a goal. Speaking into a webcam about myself is a very strange experience indeed.
 
When people are starting to look for a therapist websites usually come up during a search and they have to plough through words which give them an idea about what the therapist can offer but gives little indication as to what might this person be like. A photograph might fill in "what do they look like" and so make a decision "well, they look ok".
 
All this is what's called "transference", we transfer onto another certain attributes which may be positive or negative. Transference includes "they remind me of  X, and I liked them, so I will like this therapist" or " the therapist reminds me of Y and I didn't like them at all, so I won't like this therapist" and move onto the next website. Of course all this happen subconsciously out of awareness and is a first impression which we attach great importance to.
 
A video won't get rid of the transference, in fact it may well heighten the effect. So give the video a go, tell me what you think...be as kind as you can.....
