Whether you are a manual therapist, psychotherapist, coach, or other helping professional, chances are you have been trained to be an ‘expert’ of your trade. This expertise can be a gift to your client, yet, it can also prevent your client from accessing their personal power. How can you hold yourself as a credentialed professional while supporting your clients to take up their power? And why is this important?
Robyn Dalzen, consent facilitator and co-founder of the School of Consent, discusses how to move from a ’treatment’ based approach, with a focus on fixing clients, to a co-creative approach, with a focus on partnering with clients to support them in finding their way back to choice. This approach supports autonomy, choice and transformation.
