Coaching psychology - Simple reflection

Perceptive reflections for developing discrepancy

1), simple reflection - these reflections are like the images seen in a flat mirror. A simple reflection paraphrases and restates what clients are saying, using their own words without exaggeration, interpretation, or distortion. The impact of such simple reflection is surprisingly powerful.

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

coach : It seems that you, your friends, and your spouse don't have time to exercise.

client : That's true, except for one of my friends who is an avid runner. I don't know how he does it.

coach : When you say you have a friend who is an avid runner, it sounds like you are impressed and may be curious, wondering how he manages to find the time (Moore, Jackson, and Tschannen-Moran, 2016).

the next step : Let's find out how that friend manages is time. He can be a good role model for your behavior change.
