Why is authenticity important in therapy ?
A lot of people enroll in therapy because they are interested in learning more about themselves and to share their personal journeys. It’s very common that people experience self-identity crisis, which negatively impacts their overall health.
Black Women in particular have often experience what we term “Authenticity Crisis” due to racism and Intersectionality they often cope by code switching. They are supported in therapy by taking action towards self-examination and self-representation.
What It Means To Be Authentic?
Being authentic means you show up genuine, original, real, actual, and true.
But what does it really mean to be an authentic person living an authentic life?
Do you agree that Authenticity is important in all that you do? If so how?
If you are one of those individuals seeking support around your identity please feel free to inquire about an appointment today.
