Part of the coaching work I do is to help people with the emotional and cognitive obstacles to making positive changes. This usually begins with a focus on adapting to dietary restrictions, but often it morphs into examining other areas of life that might be out of balance.
Often our perception of a situation (be it dealing with a celiac disease diagnosis, anxiety over food allergies, our personal relationships, career goals...) is actually not helping us to reach our goals. One tool that I find helpful in beginning to understand perceptions about a situation is "Question Thinking." This has helped me and several of my clients to more fully understand the connection between our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors...and ultimately to make changes in our thoughts leading to more productive behaviors.
If you would like to explore question thinking and how it may be helpful to you, join me on September 22nd & 29th from 6:30 - 8:30PM for a two-part workshop called "The Power of Our Questions" at the Women Supporting Women Center in Exeter. Click on the flyer image for full details.
