In your first session we will look at your SMART Goal, to help you understand a bit more about these we have done a Q&A with Jerry so you know what to expect.

  • What are SMART goals?

    Specific (simple, sensible, significant).

    Measurable (meaningful, motivating).

    Achievable (agreed, attainable).

    Relevant (reasonable, realistic and resourced, results-based).

    Time bound (time-based, time limited, time/cost limited, timely, time-sensitive).

  •  Why it important to break them down?

Your goal should be clear and specific, otherwise you won’t be able to focus your efforts or feel truly motivated to achieve it.

  • Should we have multiple goals or just one?

One main goal, broken down into mini/bitesize goals. Never have more than one main goal at any one time, though.

  •  Do they relate to my personal life or career goals?

Either; your main goal is just that. Your main objective. The one thing you are truly focused on.

  •  Will my therapist help me work out my SMART goal?

Your therapist will help you work out your SMART goal, they will ask a series of questions and challenge your belief-system in order for you to identify your SMART goal for yourself.
