How does this therapy/coaching thing work then, eh?
This is a quote from Carolyn Spring, because I could not put it any better myself:
“Therapy is not something we engage with under general anaesthetic, with the therapist as brain surgeon magically fiddling with our brain. It is an active process and we need to be actively engaged in it. We need to understand what we are trying to achieve through therapy, and how we’re going to achieve it …”
So basically, let’s do a bit of work to get clear on what you want and then let’s both of us jump right in.
We don’t have to be constrained by a set or specific protocol (though they can sometimes be helpful). We don’t have to rush it or drag it out, and although sometimes it can be tricky, you don’t have to work hard, but smart. Often there are lots of laughs and you can tell me to shut up and listen any time you like, I won’t mind.
