Clare and Steve explore how discomfort shows up in our work. We can be uncomfortable asking difficult questions, or with the response our client may have to one; we can be uncomfortable with emotions - our clients, or sharing our own. Our own values, or our personal history, can bring us discomfort when challenged in coaching or in supervision. Sometimes we can feel the discomfort from something society values or frowns on. Working with something new and unfamiliar, or particularly challenging, can also lead to feelings of discomfort … and much more. Learning to notice our discomfort and developing a willingness to explore it, declare it, re-contract around it can all be very useful.
