A. Incorrect. Focus on the student's experiences; it is not about you.
B. Correct. Try to remember to ask open questions, rather than closed 'yes/no' ones.
C. Correct. This shows you have understood what has been said, and helps to check if you have misunderstood.
D. Correct. This can sometimes speak louder than words, especially if the student is attempting to keep a 'stiff upper lip'. You should also think about how you are presenting yourself to allow for calm contact.
E. Correct. Tune into the student's feelings (not your own).
F. Incorrect. Help the student to find a way forward on their terms not your advice; find out how they have coped before.
G. Correct. Allow time for the student to feel heard by you, accept that their experiences are theirs.
