Ending the conversation

A good way to move towards closing the consultation is to summarise the discussion.

Below are some useful questions:

• Where does this leave you now?

• What would it be helpful for you to do between now and when we meet again?

• What’s your next step?

• Is there any information you’d like me to give you that would help you make up your mind about this?

• What have you learned from previous attempts to change? What does your experience tell you about the best way to go about this?
