An example of double-sided reflection

client : I don't have time to exercise. My friends and my spouse don't either.

coach : I hear you saying that you don't have time to exercise and that your friends and spouse don't either. But I've also heard you say that exercise makes you feel better and that regular exercise would be good for your energy and health.

client : That's the problem. I want to exercise, and it does make me feel better, but it cuts into my time with family and friends. If I could figure out how to do both, perhaps I could make exercise stick.

coach : It sounds like you are feeling discouraged because it's hard to meet your needs for both exercise and connection, and it would be worthwhile to find a way.
