Purchase Review

A step-by-step approach for people who feel ‘stuck’ and overwhelmed by their lives. It offers methods for tapping into sources and resources they already have, called ‘exceptions’. ‘Exceptions’ are the ‘good’ they’ve learned from past experiences but have perhaps forgotten about, or situations that went well for them in the past, but over time got pushed aside.

By understanding that their problems have eroded their confidence, readers can discover that their abilities have simply been in limbo, ready to be rediscovered as solutions.


The Miracle Question

The Miracle Question is a very practical book, written in a way for coaches to support their clients or for an individual to work through their own element of “stuck”. To aid the understanding of how this solution focused therapy works, it uses a number of different case studies throughout the chapters to showcase how the conversation takes place between professional and client when asked the miracle question: “Suppose tonight while you sleep, a miracle happens. When you awake tomorrow morning, what will you see yourself doing, thinking or believing about yourself that will tell you a miracle has happened in your life?”.
The book then continues to explain how the miracle question, once answered needs to be explored to help the client, by asking questions such as “What will [said miracle] do for you when they begin happening? It then offers methods for tapping into resources the clients already have, called ‘exceptions’. ‘Exceptions’ are the ‘good’ they’ve learned from past experiences but have perhaps forgotten about, or situations that went well for them in the past, but over time got pushed aside.
This book is very supportive to the coaching professional with each chapter giving a list of questions to use with your clients along with examples of conversations. It also focuses on solutions to some common issues such as marital challenges, parenting challenges, dealing with harmful habits and re-writing traumas, ultimately supporting the client to see their issue as the problem, rather than the person. Overall, an informative, easy read with a hands-on approach which I thoroughly enjoyed.
