Question about the model

Hello! I’m a coach in training and had a question about the model. In Brooke’s book “Self Coaching 101”, she says that if your client identifies the troubling thought, it is unnecessary to point out what the circumstance is (if the client did not identify a circumstance and went straight to the thought). If that is the case during a coaching session, do I need to look at the client’s circumstance at all while doing the model with him/her, or it’s okay to just do the model starting right at the thought?
