  • This is followed up with a supportive and challenging response to the clients needs
  • Uses a range of techniques and tools to help clients reach an understanding of the gap between them and their goal, and adds value by using well formulated questions to explore possibilities and options
  • The client will be clear that change can only be delivered through action, and each session will set clear follow up tasks to be completed
