Be intentional with your niche to find your circle

What have you always loved to do? Who have you always enjoyed working with, be it clients or fellow clinicians? Those are clues to where your niche is.

[I] wanted to create that space for other black men, and it’s been really rewarding to work with my brothers on a lot of different topics and a lot of different areas in their lives.

Warren Brandon Wright

Sometimes, working as a therapist can feel isolating.

Finding your circle of like-minded colleagues and fellow professionals to receive support from, and offer support to, can help you do your best work.

Boost your professional career with professional support

Building your professional circle of support can be helpful to you and your clients.

When I reflect [on] and help other people in my roles as a counselor and a coach, I realize that a lot of times they don’t have the support that they need for the accountability … or they feel like they don’t know how to ask for that help.

Warren Brandon Wright

When you network with other therapists within and outside of your niche, you will know other professionals to refer clients to.

Additionally, this professional circle can act as an accountability and community space for you and the other clinicians within it.

When I reflect back on my life, I had people in my corner … people who were always holding me accountable to my dreams and my goals … that’s something I’d like to focus on [in my professional career].

How to create an authentic circle of support

If you are looking for a community, accountability partners, and even a mentor, try:

  • Reflection: sit down with yourself and ask what it is that you need to transition and level up in your life.

What is it that you need and how can you express that need to someone else?

Warren Brandon Wright
  • Asking yourself: how much are you willing to invest in yourself? You have to do something different to experience something different.
  • Being upfront: what do you need, and which small steps can you take today to fulfill those needs?
