Goal Setting in Therapy

Goal setting in therapy

A statement of the obvious:

In order to get what you want, you must know what you want

Ok, so it’s not always true: I didn’t know I wanted a digital camera until I won one in a competition, but conversely, I would never have got to the position of writing this book if I hadn’t known that I wanted to!

A client will often have only a vague idea of what they want and need. Their ideas may be abstract, precise or anywhere in between. They are unlikely to come to you saying “I want to buy a Porsche in 6 months time”. More likely they will say “I don’t feel I have any status”.

So the process is to get the client to the specifics, and then to find routes to achieve the aims.
