I can speak from the perspective of a trained counsellor, assuming you were referring to a counseling psychologist. I find that there are pros and cons, but to answer your question, it affects my health in a positive way. If I had more information on exactly what you meant by "affect your own health," I'd be able to be more helpful, I think.

Good luck!

For me, I find my work as a therapist invigorating. I am energized after each session as I feel I am fulfilling my purpose and I have been given the opportunity to help someone who is hurting.
