The Dream For Others podcast endeavours to hold space for big dreamers, thinkers and doers. It is hosted by Naomi Arnold, an award-winning life + business coach with a background in psychology, health, business and human rights. Together, let's dream for you, dream for me and dream for others.
In this episode, Naomi reminds us of how important it is in conversations to often come from a place of witnessing not fixing. One of the mistakes we often make in our personal and professional relationships is to immediately want to fix or find a solution when someone shares a problem with us or shows emotion in our company - but this can sometimes make the person feel unheard and alone. In this episode Naomi shares some tips for how you can practice changing this and become skilled at witnessing not fixing.

In this episode, Naomi introduces listeners to the Stages of Change framework, using an example from her personal life to illustrate the stages one can go through when it comes to readiness for change.
