Rather thangetting typed notes from sessions, my clients receive a digital image they canrefer to as a reminder of what they took away from the session and want tointegrate into next steps. VISUAL REPRESENTATIONS OFCONCEPTS 11. To honor my clients confidentiality, I am not sharing any of their images.

It helps me to remember how to get back to whats really important to me: listening to my inner knowing and wisdom and taking five minutes every now and then to do so! 12. A blog post of colleague, Erica Mills of Claxon Marketing, inspired this graphic that captures the main points and flow of her article. This helped her to communicate her thinking in a visual manner.
