I really appreciate learning about the role of acceptance. I can relate to the case study of Client A, where coaching clients can go between “dwelling” on the past or getting stuck and “indulging” on future aspirations without tangible or stable movement. I think the missing link is acceptance. Most of us do not want to accept a negative past or present; or I’ll have clients unable to stop blaming things in the past. I think acceptance from an objective, neutral mindset is really pivotal, and will be that next stepping stone into moving forward with permanency.”  Connie Sheehan
