Here is a short article I wrote on Instagram therapists.
The latest niche Insta-performers to get attention are Insta-therapists.
As the New York Times notes, therapists are the new Insta-poets. They are posting short, inspirational blurbs and raising awareness of themselves as therapists.
It's important to note that these posts do not legally count as therapy.
It's often not legal to provide therapy over state lines, and the substance in these posts, while impactful, has a short-term effect compared to regular therapy sessions.
In fact, I view them more as inspiration, kind of like a self-help book divided into bite-size pieces.
Not all of the authors jumping on the mini-inspiration trend are even therapists-- many are creators focused on sharing their tips for a more thoughtful life.
Filling your Instagram feed with wholesome content will propel you towards conscious Instagram usage. Following these inspiration accounts is a great start towards curating for a better social media experience.
