87. Listener Question Episode: Balancing Life on the Move: Work-Life Balance for Traveling Therapists

In this episode of the Traveling Therapist Podcast, your host Kym tackles, a common challenge faced by traveling therapists: maintaining a healthy work-life balance while constantly on the move. The episode begins with a listener question from Becca S. who wonders about the difficulty of establishing a consistent work routine amid changing locations. Kym shares personal anecdotes, including the Airbnb booking mishaps experienced during their travels, to illustrate the unique challenges that arise.

Throughout the episode, Kym explores the impact of this nomadic lifestyle on personal relationships, offering strategies for staying connected with loved ones while combating loneliness. Practical tips, such as prioritizing self-care, leveraging technology, and creating flexible routines, are also shared to help traveling therapists strike a balance between work and personal life. The importance of healthy boundaries, both with clients and in self-care practices, is emphasized. 


  • Traveling therapists face unique challenges like adjusting to new work environments and dealing with technical issues.
  • A nomadic lifestyle can impact personal relationships, but strategies like staying connected with loved ones and building support networks help mitigate this.
  • Maintaining a healthy work-life balance involves prioritizing self-care, setting flexible routines while establishing strong boundaries with clients and self-care practices.
