I can’t put it in the right words but I took a few pictures…

Imagine a client comes to you and sais: I can’t put it in the right words but since you use photography in coaching, I took a few pictures after our last session to show how I progressed. I’m sure you will understand. This happened to me yesterday! ☺️ I was very impressed by what she showed to me. And I decided to write about it because it can be inspiring to you. At the end of our session three weeks ago, I suggested to my client to start observing time. Her life challenge is to be able to pause, to stop feeling constantly on a hurry. Yesterday, she came to the session and first, she opened her coaching diary (I usually ask my clients to have a coaching diary during the process). I saw several photos inside, that represented plants and bread. What is on these photos? – I asked. By the way, this is an example of a good coaching question about a client’s photo. “I planted flowers at home and baked bread.” “What was important in it for you?” – I asked another question. “I always dreamed about having flowers at home but never had time for it. The same about the bread. – there was a time, I used to make my own bread but with time, I forgot about it. In the last weeks, I observed flowers and took the time to bake my own bread.” “How do you feel about it now?” – I asked again. “I have satisfaction. And I feel joy and calm.” I hope you will find it useful and inspiring about using photos in coaching! Do Raniszewska
