“BE WITH” the client versus “DO TO” the client
BEING WITH = being fully present; listening for who and how the client is being (values, strengths, beliefs, etc.); responding to (words, language, emotion, etc.) Paying attention to the subtle nuances of the client’s shifts of energy, or changes in direction.
DOING TO = problem solving, asking leading questions, offering unsolicited suggestions, offering your own analysis (“So that means____.” Instead of asking “What meaning do you make of that?”)
BEING WITH is being a conduit for emergence; DOING TO is a focus on performance and methodology.
Inquiry: What does it mean to be fully present? What is the impact of my authentic presence with my client?
