Solution oriented Therapists ask clients how they will know when they are better. Therapists often wish to be better in their role, but few ask the Miracle Question of themselves.
Giving clients permission â€œnot to speakâ€ encourages disclosure. Explicitly granting the freedom to subvert our power frees the client to tell us what they need.
Steady eye contact from a client is your prompt to speak. Attending to eye contact helps us to minimise interruptions of the clientâ€™s train of thought and to be more comfortable with silences.
Relaxation improves our performance, benefitting us and our clients. We promote relaxation in our clients but we rarely apply our approaches and techniques to ourselves.
