Starting Goal-setting counseling

What is goal-setting counseling?

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.

How many sessions are needed and how often they occur often hinges on the client’s objectives and the complexity of their concerns.

Goal-Setting Counseling at Thriveworks in The Woodlands, TX

In counseling, setting goals and intentions is a positive strategy used to help clients gain confidence as well as the development of a positive frame of thought. Setting intentions is the act of stating your desired outcome. Like a goal, intentions allow both clients and counselors to understand your focus and destination as set points throughout the therapeutic relationship.

Whether you’re facing depression, trauma, anxiety, PTSD, or other challenges, our goal-oriented therapy fosters resilience, self-awareness, and a renewed sense of purpose. If you’re ready to embark on this transformative journey, contact Thriveworks in The Woodlands by booking or  at 281-667-9790 to schedule your appointment today. We’re here to help you turn your aspirations into reality.

How Can Goal-Setting Counseling Help Me?

Goals that are contingent on self over the influence of others have a much higher chance for achievement. This means, working with your counselor to help you understand your role in the change process is critical. Viewing your clinician as an accountability partner rather than the main source of discipline is a key factor in the mental health process.

Your counselor is your partner in the journey towards healing; helping to ensure that you reach the goals set out to achieve. This is a great example of self-discipline which can help clients who may struggle with symptoms related to depression, trauma, anxiety, PTSD and other mental and emotional challenges.

Once a client and clinician work together to observe your needs and intentions for therapy, planning and goal setting can be initiated. This is an important piece of the counseling puzzle because this is your space to dream. Dreaming of a better future is not only for clients who struggle with difficult diagnoses, but also applicable to everyday opportunities for learning and growth. Remaining disciplined while maintaining realistic expectations can provide additional sources of healing.
