A therapist can be defined as a professional who helps people gain insight about their life, helps them develop an understanding about their problems and solutions and facilitates productive change towards the solutions.
A good therapist should have knowledge about and understanding of multiple aspects of human existence which includes but in not limited to emotions, behaviours and working of the mind.
Also a good therapist should not just be competent in their specific specialisation but should also have other skills like communication, rapport building, effective listening, questioning……
The knowledge, competency and skills that a good therapist requires are not static. In the constantly evolving world that we are living in even the knowledge, competency and skills that a therapist has needs to continue to evolve.
