Goal-Based therapy

Goal-based therapy, also known as goal-oriented or goal-directed therapy, is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on setting and achieving specific therapeutic goals. The main aim of goal-based therapy is to help individuals identify their goals and work towards them in a structured and effective manner.

In goal-based therapy, the therapist and client work together to identify specific, measurable, and achievable goals. These goals can be related to any aspect of the client's life, such as personal relationships, career, health, or self-improvement. The therapist helps the client to develop an action plan to achieve these goals and provides support, guidance, and feedback throughout the process.

The process of goal-based therapy involves several steps, including:

  • Identifying goals: The therapist helps the client identify specific goals they want to achieve. Goals should be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound.
  • Developing an action plan: Once the goals are identified, the therapist helps the client develop an action plan to achieve them. This includes identifying specific actions that need to be taken, breaking down the actions into smaller steps, and setting deadlines for completion.
  • Implementing the plan: The client takes action to achieve the goals identified in the action plan. The therapist provides ongoing support and guidance to help the client stay on track.
  • Evaluating progress: The therapist and client regularly evaluate progress towards the goals. If necessary, the goals may be revised or new goals may be identified.
  • Celebrating success: Once the goals are achieved, the therapist helps the client celebrate their success and identify new goals to work towards.

Goal-based therapy can be used to treat a variety of mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, and addiction. It can also be used to help individuals with personal or professional development, such as improving communication skills, time management, or leadership abilities.

Overall, goal-based therapy is a structured and effective approach to psychotherapy that can help individuals identify and achieve their goals in a focused and efficient manner.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
