  • 13. The Process
    • PROBLEM FREE TALK
    • We know a little about what’s brought you here, but ALMOST NOTHING about you.
    • Finding Strengths and Resources
    • Talk about areas of competence, NOT deficits.
    • Emphasis on times when the ‘problem’ is not happening, or happening less.
    • Clues to Solutions
  • 14. Changes Already Made
    • Most clients have made some changes between contacting SAAS and their first appointment.
    • Almost all will have made some attempts to change.
    • It is our job to find out what’s been tried.
    • > we find out what works and what to do more of
    • > we find out what hasn’t worked, what was learned from that experience and what not to do
    • > to promote client self agency. The client has the answers, they may just not have realised it.
  • 15. What’s brought you here?
    • A brief outline of the reasons that clients have come to SAAS.
    • Acknowledgement and validation of their story.
    • A measure of drinking ‘at it’s worst’, now and ‘best hopes’.
    • Emphasising the expectation that things will already be changing and that the client has some idea of where they want to get to.
  • 16. Where are you trying to get to?
    • The task for the counsellor is to find out where the client wants to go and then work out the best ( maybe quickest) way to get there.
    • Miracle Question / Goals / Preferred Future.
    • This accesses a conversation about WHAT THE CLIENT WANTS.
    • About strengths and competence.
    • Promotes an atmosphere of HOPE and expectation.
    • WHAT YOU NOTICE GROWS
  • 17.
    • Clients will inevitably know their ‘problem’ inside out, it will have been rehearsed and discussed in great detail.
    • In these circumstances, people concentrate on problems to the exclusion of the rest of their lives.
    • This way of talking reminds them of all the other stuff going on in their lives.
    • THE TIMES WHEN THE PROBLEM ISN’T HAPPENING OR THE SOLUTIONS!!
  • 18. NUMBERS
