I had such fun talking with Renie Anderson last week on the podcast, and we couldn’t help but continue the conversation and talk about a specific thing I hear a lot in discovery sessions with clients, and follow ups; the release, and then the pull-back of wanting to solve the problem.
Renie talked through with me what she thinks is happening when a new client pulls away after breaking down in the office.
We talked about:
- What happens when a new client tells me their story in an initial consultation — and then gets cold feet about continuing with the process
- Why committing to finding an answer — and then backing out before completing the process — is a common problem
- The problem of expecting a quick fix after decades of processing things a certain way
- Renie’s thoughts on why someone might not really want the answers, even if they think they do
- Why we need to connect to what the little kid inside of us is looking for
- How to sit with the discomfort of what we learn about how our body holds things
- Why self-soothing is the antidote to a nervous system in over-drive — and is always available to us
- Why meditation is not about peace and relaxation – and what its real purpose is
- Why curiosity is so essential in analyzing our own situation
- The pervasive problem of feeling we need to fix other people
