Presentation description:

If there is any worry that keeps people awake at night most, it would be the worry about relationships.

We all have relationships. For instance, with a life partner, your parents, your friends, and colleagues. And for nobody all of these are flawless.

We can help people express their expectations and learn to communicate in a connecting way. But many problems in relationships originate from earlier experiences and limiting beliefs. In these cases, working with both people in your coaching or therapy is not the most effective approach. By Unilateral Improvement of Relationships, you can help clients experience themselves, each other, and their relationships in a more helpful way.

In this presentation the Mentor technique to improve the client’s self-compassion and thereby improve the relationship will be demonstrated and discussed.

In the Mentor technique, mental space is used alongside of confusion and imagination to form a very kind and I-reinforcing intervention that will enrich your work. It is applicable with clients who suffer from resistance against relationship therapy, with a doubtful self-esteem or who feel very responsible for the other person. This makes it a great technique to work on relationships among other things the relationships within families.
