This is one of my favorite topics and I am excited to have my good friend Sabrina here today with Roberta Rolfe to talk about why mindfulness can be helpful to our clients. Previous interviews focused on why mindfulness is good for us as career service providers. (Here is one of my blogs on this topic if you are interested. Watch now.)
Today I ask our experts
—How do you use mindfulness practices during your coaching or therapy sessions?
–What would you like career coaches to keep in mind as they do their coaching work regarding mindfulness?
