Insight + Action with Nurturing Accountability = Transformation
Our time together will often include three key elements of transformation: insight building, action planning, and strengths-based check-ins.
Insight building is focused on clarifying what you want to do, understanding why you haven’t done it yet (including what blind spots exist or additional resources are needed), and what is the most essential next step. We want to make sure you’re clear about your values, aspirations, motivations, and obstacles.
Action planning is about outlining how to make the desired change. This might include specifying actions required, resources needed, and timelines anticipated for implementing them. The planning portion is also about psychoeducation – providing you with the knowledge and skill (an integration of emotional, behavioral, and motivational tools) so you are equipped and feel capable of taking meaningful action.
Nurturing Accountability comes into play each time we meet. We check in about new insights between appointments, blindspots, tools that didn’t work well, unexpected barriers, and any hang-ups with follow-through. We use that data to identify needed shifts in beliefs, behaviors, and boundaries so that you can execute the dynamic adjustments desired. Our appointments will feel like safe environments for questions, trial and error, mistakes, and even slow progress. While we keep you accountable to your goals and values, we want you to feel nurtured throughout the growing and stretching process. If you hit a stuck point, we offer cutting edge techniques and compassionate encouragement so you can face your fears, be gentle with yourself in the process, and healthily make your way beyond the block.
With this system in place, you know what to expect from each session, from us, and from yourself. Our clients have consistently shared that these efforts resulted in a greater transformation than expected, both in their internal experience of themselves and in how that inner security enabled them to enhance their external environments.
