New Trends In Reflective Listening Skills

Reflective listening is much more than active listening, it goes beyond our normal listening habits!

When a wellness coach is skilled in the reflective listening approach, we help our client to clarify their thoughts, assure them that we care about their point of view, and give them “felt safety” in knowing that we are partnering together to understand each other more clearly and find insights. The approach to listen with reflection uses deep empathy and the desire to understand correctly what is being expressed.

9 Pre-Rituals To A Holistic Coaching Conversation

Part of our holistic approach to coaching is to become present: mind, body and spirit before beginning a coaching conversation. To maintain presence, you have to be present.

We asked our Holistic Coach Training Institute Alumni to share their favorite approaches to becoming present for a coaching conversation. Which of these rituals might you add?

Pray for A Spirit-led Call

“Having a pre-ritual to my coaching sessions is key for a successful connection with my clients. I take 15-30 minutes to clear, relax, pause and allow the Spirit to work in and through me. I complete my own breathing exercise to clear my thoughts from the busyness of my day. I then meditate and pray for my upcoming client and our call to be Spirit-led and pause for any guidance that may come forward. At that time I journal any necessary insights or awareness for myself or may be necessary for my client. Although every client and situation is different, the pre-ritual is the same and very important to a successful connection session.”
