This interactive workshop provides participants with an opportunity to develop their understanding of goals in counselling and psychotherapy, and to develop their skills and knowledge in this area.  The workshop is particularly oriented towards participants who are interested in an understanding their clients as agentic and purpose-oriented beings, and wary of more mechanistic or ‘outcome-oriented’ goal-based approaches. The workshop starts by introducing the concept of ‘directionality’—that human beings are always oriented towards future possibilities—and looks at how this can be applied to an understanding of self. The workshop then explores what has been learnt from the psychological research about the nature of goals and goal processes (for instance, distinguishing between 'approach' and 'avoidance' goals). It then goes on to a more practical exploration of working with goals, including skills practice and video demonstrations.



By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Define the concept of ‘directionality’ and be able to apply this to an understanding of their own psychological processes
  • Discuss the theory and evidence that relates 'goal actualisation' and goals types to psychological wellbeing and distress
  • Apply basic goal-oriented practices in counselling and psychotherapy, including goal discussion and goal setting
  • Use the Goals Form in an appropriate manner


Session 1: Directionality: The actualisation of our deepest directions

Session 2: Goal dimensions: ‘Not all goals are created equal’

Session 3: Basic principles and methods for working with goals in counselling and psychotherapy

Session 4: Using the Goals Form



The workshop combines self-development exercises, theoretical input, practical exercises, and small and large group discussion. The workshop is appropriate for training and practicing counsellors, psychotherapists, counselling psychologists and other mental health professionals.
