Therapy is About Thinking, Too

It's true that your intellect can get in the way of effective psychotherapy, which is an undertaking very much concerned with emotion. But therapy also relies heavily on curiosity and the ability to think analytically. This is why I think lawyers are especially well positioned to benefit from therapy. This isn't just a theory; it's been my experience.

Are lawyers disproportionately in need of psychotherapy? There are so many jokes and cliches, some of which you may traffic in while being annoyed by others. Generally, I think we can say that it's stressful, high-stakes work that requires you to keep your emotions in check much of the time. Being able to keep your emotions in check is a valuable skill. Having to do so, however, brings hardships.
