Client Session Start – Check-in
You should open every new client session with a brief check-in on the last session. A great question to reinforce positive results is – ‘What has gone well for you since our last session?’. This will also give you an indication as to what your client has put in practice from your previous session.
We would never embarrass a client if they haven’t done anything, we might say something like well ‘today is a clean sheet’ or ‘perhaps let’s recap on what you could do.’
Then move on to the new session.
