Coaching psychology - Amplified reflection

amplified reflections - these reflections are like the images seen in a convex or concave mirror. they maximize or minimize what clients say in order to evoke disagreement from them in the direction of change talk. by reflecting an increased or decreased intensity of a client's perspective, magnifying oth the affect and the outcome, clients may react quickly with new insights and reasons to change. to avoid being manipulative, the coach should use statements only in the service of client-generated goals. to avoid being mocking or patronizing, the coach should deliver such statements in charge-neutral terms.

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 know anyone close to you who has time to exercise and that it feels impossible for you to fit exercise into your schedule.

client : It's not impossible for me to exercise. It's just hard to find the time. Once in a while I do manage to exercise, and I know there are people out there who exercise regularly, so maybe I could figure out a way.

coach : Sounds as though you are curious and feeling a little energized about finding a way to exercise more regularly, learning from the experience of others (Moore, Jackson, & Tschannen-Moran, 2016).
