On the last track we discussed talking to clients if the illness is not progressing as planned. This included a description of the take the opposite track technique.
On this track we will discuss rebounding and rebuilding. The first step to recovery after remission is to reconcile with the idea of being healthy again.
Cancer and the fight for recovery never really ends. Along with the battle scars, clients generally gain a new perspective on life. Tabitha, age 48, had gone into remission from her cancer. Tabitha asked, “What does that mean?” I stated, “It means that you will carry your new perspective along with a few fears into the future. It means you will have some additional considerations and challenges, as well as the joys of overcoming them.”
Reconciling to the Idea of Being Healthy
I stated, “Then you must move forward. Some of my clients noticed that one of the things that was damaged was their sense of mental and physical confidence, whether at work, at play, or on dates. After battling cancer it will take time to regain the will and desire to compete again in worldly matters. But soon you’ll rediscover that spirit, whether it’s feeling good on a date or achieving new heights of physical fitness. In fact, many clients find it helpful to set difficult physical goals, including running marathons, and are eventually able to meet them.” Think of your Tabitha. What goal setting strategies might benefit your client?
