Does anyone in consulting see a therapist? If so, how do you navigate scheduling? I feel like schedule/work expectations/culture vary so much based on project/client/team that I don’t really know the best way to see a therapist even though it is something I would really like to do.

Not enough people in consulting see a therapist.

Most of them are doing virtual appointments now, so super easy! I just block 45 minutes off on my calendar. Even when I was in the office I would just find an empty conference room and take my appointment there.

Also, therapy is nothing to be ashamed of but if you feel the need to inform your team but feel uncomfortable saying therapy, you can say it’s a meeting with your life coach, mentor, counselor, etc. Best of luck!

Definitely easier now that’s it’s virtual. I just schedule early in the day or at lunch. When it was in person I would just say I have a doc appointment and leave the office.
