In my day work I often touch base with some of my client referral sources to set up contact numbers for various clients.  In one conversation recently, I heard myself being described as a “personality”. I didn’t take any offence at this description of me as a counsellor – it was said with an element of recognition for my work. I was very intrigued to hear this perspective about myself. I have never seen myself as a “personality” in the industry.


Someone with Personality

I am a very private sort of person and over the years I have developed quite a conservative approach to my life and work. I love to develop a niche in my craft as a therapist.

There are some associates and people in the counselling industry that might know that I’m an Astrologer too. I guess being an astrologer is not that conservative and it adds a certain incongruousness to the description of me.  Other counsellors have interesting lives away from work.


Perhaps I have a creative side to my brain

After speaking with the person who described me as a “personality”  I wondered what it must be like to work in a government agency – perhaps they don’t have personalities in there? I am sure there are some characters and personalities in the various agencies. Indeed I have met some of them over the years.

Working in counselling is never really about “fun” – however I do seem to have some very funny moments with clients from time to time. I wonder if that is what the person means by describing me as a “personality” ? Many friends who know me – will say that I am a serious person with a good amount of wit. They would also say that I tend to enjoy my own space – away from work.


Perhaps I will accept that others see me as a “personality”

Being a “personality” doesn’t mean that I am on TV running a game show – nor does it mean that I have a cult following. If I am charismatic in my work – that is I express my own personality with some clients then I am happy about being called a “personality”.

    Nothing wrong with being a personality, as long as it doesn’t take quality of life from you. Nothing wrong with being famous as long as it doesn’t stifle your life too.

    You personality you.

    I’m a serious person but i’m a bit thick for wit. And i also really enjoy a heap of nothingness when i’m not working. I like to do my private stuff in private or no private stuff gets done.

    Hope today behaves itself for you… roses

    I’ve honestly never heard of that kind of a comment towards someone. It doesn’t sound like a bad thing at all.
