I see very clearly that education into psychology does not equal insight into complex trauma. And some honest psychologists have messaged me to thank me for my greater insight, which helps them to assist their clients in healing. Takes humility to do this, not something all educationally intelligent people are capable of.
There are great psychologists and psychiatrists, there are also very inadequately non insightful and harmful ones.
Qualifications do not maketh the quality of the mental health professional.
In fact I am aware too many are ego centred, like to mimimize the capabilities of anyone without the piece of paper they possess. Same with doctors, some are pretty poor quality.
But shallow, naive people like to view the success of a person by their qualifications.
I have a doctor who is also a counsellor. I don’ t think of her as a doctor. I think of her as a human being, who has some views I disagree with strongly, has said some hurtful things, but on the whole is wise, can help me and has. I respect her. I trust her in the limited way i am capable of. But, in no way does her title of doctor, or her middle class lifestyle, her address etc, impress me in the slightest.
I am not a shallow person impressed by anything other than the really important virtues.
And I do not consider anyones education, qualifications etc make them any better, or more capable than someone else, not when it comes to complex trauma.
