“IT’S GOING TO BE OK”
LIFE COACH ERLINA SIDIK SUGGESTS THREE THINGS TO SAY BESIDES
“I’m listening ”
This helps them feel that they are being heard, and encourages them to release their emotions.
“I’m here for you. Is there anything I can do to help you feel better?”
This allows them to decide how they wish to be helped, so they don’t have to be subjected to unsolicited advice.
“I can see that this is really hard for you”
This lets them know that you are empathetic to their situation.
