What is your favorite moment from coaching?August 16, 2020 at 8:20 am #27585Leah AreffModerator
I would have to say when I see the gradual personality changes in my PWS. I do not even think they notice it, but if they keep doing all of their work and improving, they start to change with each session. They smile a bit more, they seem happier, more confident, like this weight they have carried with them for years, is slowly lifting off of their shoulders. I know exactly the stages they go through, as I went through them myself.
If you had asked me 3 years ago whether I thought I would be an inspiration to anybody, I would have laughed for a couple of hours. And while of course, I understand that I am just their guide and that THEY are actually doing all of the hard work, I get extremely emotional when I am told that I have helped them “change their lives” and “do things that they never thought possible”, as I have. That is what makes this all worth it!August 18, 2020 at 2:56 pm #27594
I fully agree with Tasneem. You see a huge change in their mood when that happens. And it is really satisfactory for us, the coaches.October 11, 2020 at 12:17 pm #27911
I’d like to use this topic to ask the coaches about two things:
1. I’ve read somewhere in this forum, that after signing up, there’s a free coaching session. Is that correct and if it is, how can I register?
2. Is Lee available for a coaching session and/or working together for a longer period of time?
Thank you!October 13, 2020 at 10:00 am #27929
we have sent your enquiry to WSSA, they should reply to you any time soon (if they haven’t replied you already).October 14, 2020 at 5:04 pm #27935
Yes, I received a reply and I really appreciate it. Thank you for your help!December 3, 2020 at 8:05 am #28370
Maybe this is a bit of a silly question, but having a dream about stuttering badly in front of others counts as a stuttering memory? 🙂December 3, 2020 at 8:13 am #28371
wow, I’m not sure about how to categorise that, but I’d say no…. But in any case, one thing you can do is to do an AST after waking up from that dream. Never forget that you are the boss of your mind. Don’t let anyone or anything try to take that control from you.December 3, 2020 at 9:25 am #28372
Yes, recently I have many random dreams about stuttering and also about being a fluent speaker.December 3, 2020 at 9:27 am #28374
Well, the ones about speaking fluently, I guess they mean that something’s changing in your mind, and that’s fantastic. Keep it up! The stuttering dreams will disappear very soon. And I’d recommend you to do an AST every time you have one of those.December 4, 2020 at 7:26 am #28381Leah AreffModerator
This does not count as a stuttering memory because you were asleep. I am glad you are having stuttering dreams, it shows that stuttering is the most important thing in your life right now (well, beating it) as I know you are working really hard at it. Take your dream with a pinch of salt, I do not believe that dreams mean anything. I have had really bad/weird dreams and nothing ever came of them.
