Case Study: House of Mirrors

Updated: Feb 6

Mythical House

Whilst attending a marketing meeting with the lovely Bridget Ginty of Believe, Become, Be. One item on the agenda was a project called ‘House of Mirrors’, a tool she uses in her Talking Therapies including Spiritual Life Coaching. I was set the project of completing what I can only describe as a fun questionnaire. The idea was that if I had a good understanding of how it worked, I would be best placed to advise on the right method to promote this as a new service through Bridget's website.


I had put it off over Christmas because, well there needed to be time to wind down, relax and reflect on the year gone but focus on the year ahead, oh and a little Baileys!


Remembering I had promised to do this, on the morning of the meeting I sat down and completed the ‘House of Mirrors’ question sheet, it took me about 45 mins, in hindsight the more detail you put in to it the more you will get out in the way of feedback and insight at the other end.


I am sworn to secrecy as to what the questions are about what rooms and the architecture.  But what I can say is that the questions are very easy to answer, you just need to be in a place with no distractions so you can get your full creativity flowing.


So, sat in the Believe, Become, Be studio, we loosely went through the first few questions so I could get an idea of the service I will be shortly promoting. It came in to conversation that I We then dropped The House Of Mirrors as I’d gained an understanding that the exercise had absolutely nothing to do with homes and gardens! I’d gained insight into areas of myself accessed by my subconscious prompted by the simple questions. This is the purpose of the exercise. For Bridget there was no need to look at the remaining descriptions as I’d got the principal of the exercise well enough to promote it as a tool of insight for self-development. But, I had to speak the honest truth and I didn’t want to finish just there, there were more answers I’d given, that we’d not opened up and explored. I felt incomplete, whether that was my own needs coming in, I like to finish things or because a change is on the horizon as I will be getting married next month. There was unfinished business, more answers and insights to be gained. We moved to the ‘talking treatment’ sofa to complete the session!


Question by question I described in detail what I had written earlier, some parts were vague (ref my earlier comment about what you put in is what you will get out). I was encouraged to ask questions if I wasn’t clear about what was said or needed more depth or clarity. I believed that I had missed parts of the questions or understood it differently to how I was being asked, but it turns out this is how it is designed, and how Bridget gets a good understanding of your current position.


What you need to know:

  • It works!

  • It’s fun, so simple yet revealing.

  • Can be used in any point in your life.

  • It is non-intrusive.

  • Can be used stand alone or with other treatments and therapies.

  • Great for honest insight, confirmation or guidance


In the past I have experienced guidance, business coaching, life coaching, counselling, holistic therapies, alternative therapies. The session or experience with Bridget left me feeling fulfilled, lighter, enlightened and optimistic about the future. I found it to be an optimistic view of my past, present and future. I am sure everyone’s experience will be different.


I enjoyed it because I am a creative person and it gave me an opportunity to let my ideas run wild. What I loved about it was there was no need to talk about a specific issue, you can go as deep or light as you like. It did highlight there is one area for improvement in my life, it wasn’t something I was oblivious too, but will give me something to work on in the coming months.


House of Mirrors I believe can be for everyone, if you are looking for honest insight, confirmation or guidance, it is certainly worth booking a session with Bridget.


Definition; House of Mirrors


A house of mirrors or hall of mirrors is a traditional attraction at funfairs (carnivals) and amusement parks. The basic concept behind a house of mirrors is to be a maze-like puzzle (made out of a myriad of mirrors).[1] In addition to the maze, participants are also given mirrors as obstacles, and glass panes to parts of the maze they cannot yet get to. Sometimes the mirrors may be distorted because of different curves, convex, or concave in the glass to give the participants unusual and confusing reflections of themselves, some humorous and others frightening.
