SMART Goal setting

Sometimes a person may need specific support to get in touch with what is really important to them in life, and in deciding what they can do to achieve this. In therapy, we will work together to identify what resources or qualities you already have, and use SMART goal setting tools to pinpoint what you need to do to move closer to achieving your goal.

SMART typically stands for

Specific ~ the more definite the goal, the better chance there is of achieving it.

Measurable ~ how will you know you have achieved this goal?

Attainable ~ the goal must be realistic to begin with

Relevant ~ something that will really benefit you when you achieve it.

Time-Based ~ by when

Remember goals are simply wishes without a plan
