SIDE STEP

Imagine that you are sitting by the fire, with the person you are referring to sitting right in front of you. 

 

Put your hands out to this person, palms up, to signal that your defenses have been dropped, and that it is safe for them to talk. 

 

Look into their eyes and ask them how they feel.  

 

Wait for as long as it takes for an answer to come to you.
