I believe developing therapy goals should be a collaboration between the client and myself. My job is to help the client identify the problems. Then we set SMART goals: Specific Measurable Attainable Relevant Time-Based goals. Setting goals is the roadmap to help the client know how to get from point A to point B.
You don't have to shoulder it all by yourself. Counseling is a safe place you can drop your worries, concerns, and problems. It's a place to develop better coping mechanisms for living life.
The key is that it be an emotional bond of trust, caring, and respect.
