Expert Strategies for Dissolving Your Client’s Resistance

When our clients are distrustful or skeptical of our work, it can create difficult barriers to healing.

To us, this can sometimes feel like resistance.

But is resistance even a valid notion?

What may at first seem like opposition, can often signal our client’s deepest struggles.

The difficult part is seeing beyond the “push back” to take in the important message our client is telling us, so we can work with instead of against their energy.

So we asked the top 20 experts in our field how they worked with their most challenging clients. We were surprised by the deep dive of their answers.

They gave us useful skills that can radically shift this kind of resistance and actually help reverse a client’s ambivalence to change.

That’s why we made. . .
