Setting Achievable Therapy Goals: Podcast 019

Setting Achievable Therapy Goals: Podcast 019

00:00 / 6.52

This podcast is the narrated version of my article How to Help Your Clients Achieve Their Therapy Goals.

Therapy goals are great ways to give a client a sense of confidence and engage them in their therapy – as long as they are created in a way that sets the client up for success. The way therapy goals are formulated and presented can make all the difference to a client’s motivation and confidence to complete them.

In this episode I talk about:

  • Stating the goal in positive terms, without going over the top
  • Leading the client step-by-step towards the goal
  • Taking one step at a time, psychologically and practically
  • Selling the sizzle, not the steak
  • How to use curiosity to boost your client’s motivation
