Let me take a few moments to explain to you the nature of the dialogue my role and your role in this
Process. We will be together for fifty minutes. I am here to be totally present with you, totally accepting of you, totally non- judgmental of anything you say or think to give you the space to talk about and deal
with anything you want.
All that you say will be confidential.
As you share, my purpose will be to ask
you questions so that you can discover your own answers,
find your own way
and come to your own
One major premise of the Option Process Dialogue is that you are your own best expert.
Therefore, your answers will be more meaningful and helpful to you than any suggestions, advice or
solutions I could give you. So I will not be giving suggestions or advice or trying to interpret what you
say. I will be listening to you -ever so carefully- and find WITHIN your statements ….the next best question to ask you.
These questions are not signs of doubt but rather opportunities for you to understand your thoughts, feelings and actions.
Just a note: You don’t ever have to answer any question I ask — this is your dialogue and you are in charge
of what you choose to say or not say. There are no right or wrong answers. You can change the subject at
anytime, although I might ask you about the change in direction. I am here only to help — the dialogue is YOUR
vehicle that YOU drive where ever you wanna go…. Im merely in the passenger seat asking you questions about
where we’re going and why, without any agenda or preconceived notions as to where we SHOULD be going
in the process. I just wanna be a part of the process of you finding your own answers… your own destination.
& wherever we end up…… its perfect
One more thing:
At the end of our session, if we are in the middle of an exploration, I will leave you with a final question to
ponder that you can take with you as we conclude. How does all that sound?
