Awakening Your Client’s Heart Magnet (3 Credits)

While working with clients going through life and career transitions, Carol McClelland Fields recognized that most people don't have a clear way to discern whether they are drawn to or repelled by aspects of their life. Without this essential internal knowing, clients feel lost, unable to make decisions that aligned with their goals, values, and needs. They run their life based on a series of "shoulds" that make life tolerable rather than a sequence of wants and desires that create a thriving life they love.

The Heart Magnet, this internal knowing that tells a client they want more of something or less of something, is like a muscle. If they haven't tapped into this inner knowing, if they were forced by recent life events or events in their childhood to just do what they had to do to get by, then this muscle has atrophied. When weakened it's hard to trust their own knowing because they have no way to know what's right for them.  

If you are working with clients who are rebuilding their life after a major transition or choosing to create a new aspect of their life, then this internal knowing is the first brick in building a thriving life! Without this inner knowing, it's impossible for your clients to make all the decisions and navigate all the choices involved in creating a life they will love.

In this 3 hour training program, you will gain a more thorough understanding of what the Heart Magnet is and how to know if a client's Heart Magnet has atrophied.

Upon completion of the training, you may weave the exercises in your coaching sessions. You may also purchase the entire Heart Magnet workbook to use as a guide while working with clients who are so out of touch with their Heart Magnet that they would benefit from the entire sequence of activities.

These activities aren't paper and pencil exercises, but real-life activities and personal retreats that invite the client to practice navigating life using their new Heart Magnet. If you work with clients in person you could embark on these activities with their client or assign the activities to their clients and then have a coaching session afterwards to support the client in leaning in as they build their capacity to listen and act on their own inner wisdom.

    • A detailed Appendix with descriptions of circumstances that may make it difficult for clients to connect with their Heart Magnet and strategies to use when the going gets tough when your client.

Unlocking Transition Anniversaries for Growth and Healing (3 Credits)

Ever had a client who was doing well and all of a sudden, for no apparent reason, they slip into a deep funk? They have no idea what happened, they aren't sure what to "fix" in order to feel better. They are understandably frustrated and anxious.

The anniversaries of significant or traumatic transitions, both personal and collective, frequently trigger unresolved feelings. Learn ways to educate your clients about these anniversary reactions and acquire tools that will help your clients identify clusters of anniversaries that may unknowingly impact them each year. Through this process, powerful insights can be revealed about how events are interrelated. Clients will also learn how to prepare proactively for these meaningful times.

You'll also gain additional insights about how to support your clients in acknowledging and commemorating these anniversaries in a way that's healing and allows them to become whole again.
