Clients who live inside you
These neurons coupled with our strong empathic skills as therapists are the reason why when your client has a stomach ache from nervousness in session, you might also have a stomachache. Or why that client that holds his shoulders up to his ears always gives you a headache (have you checked your shoulders?).
We are an amazing tool. Our bodies tell us the details of what our clients experience that our logical brain can't.
Unless we tune into our body regularly, our clients move in and take over.
5 ways to kick your clients out
1. Notice your body during the session
2. Move during your sessions
3. Move between sessions
4. Practice relaxation so you get good at it.
5. Build in self care to your schedule
