Starting Goal-setting counseling

What is Goal-setting counseling?

Goal-setting counseling from a provider at Thriveworks in Peachtree City, GA helps individuals clarify goals, develop action plans, and navigate challenges along the way. Goal-setting counselors employ effective communication and active listening to assist clients in overcoming obstacles, unlocking their potential, and achieving personal growth for a more fulfilling life.

How does Goal-setting counseling work?

In goal-setting counseling, our counselors utilize diverse therapeutic techniques that are tailored to individuals, including Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT), mindfulness, and positive psychology approaches. They also utilize active listening and empathetic communication to provide a supportive space for you to explore and achieve personal goals and overcome challenges, fostering personal growth and clarity.

Is Goal-setting counseling conducted in person or online?

How long does Goal-setting counseling last?

The number of goal-setting counseling sessions someone attends can differ based on the counselor and the client. How many sessions are needed and how often they occur often hinges on the client's objectives and the complexity of their concerns. Some clients might opt for a few sessions to tackle particular goals or issues, while others may decide on ongoing sessions to work on personal growth and life enhancement over a more extended period of time.

Counseling for Goal Setting Help—Life Coaches in Peachtree City, GA

Thriveworks Peachtree City has seen many clients who are ready to use their time well—to prioritize what they want out of life. Our counselors and life coaches know what it takes to achieve an important goal.

Setting a Goal: What’s the Point?

Often, goals serve the function of:

  1. Boosting people’s self-discipline.
  2. Continuously directing people’s attention toward their priorities.
  3. Ignite significant action.
  4. Bring focus and behavior into alignment.
  5. Maintain momentum, even through challenges and obstacles.

Varying the Target

When people utilize goals well in their life, they often aim at various targets. Some goals might be serious and significantly challenges. Others might be for fun, relaxation, or refreshment. Examples of the different kinds of goals that can be set include goals about one’s…

  • Attitude: What kind of character do you want to build? Who do you want to be?
  • Career: Is there a particular type of job or career you want to pursue now? What could you career look like in five years?
  • Finances: What type of lifestyle do you want to sustain? Do you want work part time? Travel? Live debt free?
  • Physical strength: What health changes would improve your quality of life?
  • Fun: When are you most happy? What puts a smile on your face?
  • Family: What kind of family do you want? Do you want to be single? Married with kids? Married without kids? What kinds of relationships do you want to build with your extended family?
  • Education: What can you explore and research? Is there a skill or a hobby you want to grow?
  • Artistic growth: Would you enjoy learning how to paint? Making time to practice the flute?

Far from bringing boredom and misery into people’s lives, setting and achieving various goals in all spheres of life can be exciting and fulfilling.

The Goal’s Form

Excellent goals come from within an individual’s skills, values, and talents. This is one of the ways that counselors and life coaches assist people in setting and achieving healthy goals. Mental health professionals help often guide people toward self-awareness.

The details of each goal will be deeply personal, but the form that goals take is not unique. In fact, most healthy goals have similar characteristics in how they are formed. Well-formed goals are often…

  • Shared: Tell people who will be supportive of your goals—either through tangible help or through encouragement.
  • Written: People often take documented goals more seriously. They can also revisit goals that are written instead of spoken.
  • Specific: The more details there are to a goal, the better. For example, “becoming healthier” is a vague goal, but “eating three fruits of a day” is a specific, measurable goal.
  • Time-bound: Individual goals should have deadline. The deadline could be within the day, in a week, in a year, in five years, or more. The important aspect is setting a timeframe.

I have known Stephanie for over six years and worked side by side with her in a mental health center for part of that time. What comes across first and foremost is her caring and concern for her clients and her determination to see that their needs are met. She brings to her work a wide range of experience and training along with confidence that is reassuring and a comfort to those in distress. She can deal calmly with the most severe issues as well as with problems of daily living. In the time that I've known her, she has been licensed in three different states to practice in a variety of settings. If you come to her in a time of need, in a time of emotional upheaval or difficult questions, I don't think you will find a more competent or more caring therapist.
