With AAIT, we listen deeply for what clients want to change. Sometimes, despite all the pain and desire to realize their goals, they just don’t know where to start.
We listen for where pain and tension are keeping them tethered to old ideas, limiting beliefs and compulsive reactivity. It may be in the ruminative content of their mind. It may be in the decisions they made based on traumas and unmet needs.
What cognitive tendency, what pain tethered to some story, what tethered tension is keeping them stuck? We hear the answers in the stories. Yet, as one AAIT™ practitioner reports, most therapists seem to stay stuck in discovery.
What about you? Do you ever get stuck in DISCOVERY?
