What are two of the most difficult aspects of being a non-diet professional?
*Being on your own, in your own head with your client questions, wondering how effective you are being
*Effectively communicating our passion for the freedom of non diet living in a way that clients, family and other professionals can take in to enhance the chances of long-term success for our clients and whom we aim to reach.
So how do you think the people who have been doing this work a while maintain their passion, continue to evolve and not get burned out for good?
They get Support!
If you’ve had consultation with other professionals to get feedback on new strategies you are learning or to build confidence with the strategies you have read about, you know how it can accelerate your skills.
If you have never worked in a consultation group or one-one-one supervision hear this:
Confidence builds inner calm and regulation. Regulation of your system builds safety for your clients. Safety for your clients means they are more likely to learn, trust they can manage their inner environment and be willing to take risks.
By offering our clients a non-diet approach, we are asking our clients to take some of the biggest risks of their lives.
This is why non-diet professionals consult with each other to get feedback and keep the lonely, am I helping and on the right track blues away!
Whether you are looking for long-term community or a place you can come and go, join us for monthly or bi-monthly, YOUR CHOICE, Non-Diet Counseling Skills Consultation Group!
Here’s how the group works:
You pay for what you want, either 1 or 2 meetings a month and not obligated to any number of months. Pay as you go!
Each meeting is 75-90 min depending on participants and topics. No pre-work or required readings; just show up with your questions and be ready to discuss, get feedback, try on new skills, role-play and support each other!
Our first meeting is Wed March 14 at 12pm eastern and will be held the second and fourth Wed of the month. You will receive reminder emails and access to recordings to the calls you sign up for. All meetings will be on zoom.
I don’t want you to just take my word for the power of having another support you through your learning. I credit where I am today for all the time (years really) that I consulted with experienced practitioners.
What people have said about consultation with Tracy,
“This training has exceeded my expectations – it has forced me to grow. It was hard emotionally for me in some ways, as I realized I had some bling spots (probably more to come!), but I feel much more equipped and ready to move forward. I felt supported, too, which is an incredible feeling.” Carolyn Young, RD
