[Episode 2] How to Stop Going Overtime in Your Client Sessions

Going overtime in client sessions is OK….until it isn’t. It can create stress and chaos in your schedule, and when it happens persistently it can also lead to resentment of clients. Additionally, it generally doesn’t really help your clients.

Many coaches and practitioners get stuck in a cycle of going overtime in sessions, but don’t know how to get out of it. Because you don’t know how to keep your sessions to the agreed upon time (clients can talk so much!) or because your clients have already gotten used to longer session times.

In this episode, we break down the specific reasons practitioners go overtime in sessions (most of them are not what you think, and you’ll be laughing in recognition as soon as you hear them!) and then look at exactly what to do so that going overtime in session is a “once in a while” thing versus a pattern that robs you of your time and energy.

Some of the topics we cover:

==The ways that fear can show up in your client sessions

==What happens when we pathologize fear

==Where fear comes from

==The benefits of helping clients distinguish between present and past resources

==The principle of risk when fear gets activated

==Discomfort versus pain and how this can help you work with fear

==Why releasing fears isn’t viable or safe, and what to do instead
