Challenging a Discouraged Client

People caught in patterns of “settling for,” being discouraged, being defeated can be helped to contradict these patterns by using directions of “wishing.“

A client who cannot repeat a statement such as “I trust you,” with any sense of reality, can be asked to say, “I wish I could trust you,” as an effective contradiction that will bring discharge. After enough discharge on this level of contradiction, such a client can be asked to use phrases such as “Someday I’m going to trust you,” and eventually stronger contradictions, such as “I can” and “I will.”

In challenging a discouraged or “defeated” client, it is important to sometimes reduce your expectations down to a small change, then praise and encourage and enthuse when the client makes that change, and then ask for another small change immediately afterward.
