HOW COUNSELING CAN HELP YOU REACH YOUR GOALS IN THE NEW YEAR
If you struggle to set goals, let alone reach them, you are definitely not alone. In fact, it is thought that roughly 92% of the population has found it hard to stick to goals. Reaching goals is empowering and helps us feel we are in charge of our life.
How Counseling Can Help
A goal setting formula used in counseling is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This helps individuals set and reach goals in order to change behaviors.
The goal-setting formula used by most CBT therapists is as follows:
- Identify your goal.
- Choose a starting point.
- Identify the steps required to achieve the goal.
- Take that first step and get started.
A therapist can help you with each one of these steps. From ensuring you select realistic goals, to helping you identify where you are in relation to your goal, breaking down the goal into smaller, actionable steps, a therapist can help guide you through this process.
