Cognitive Therapy Focusses on Current Problems and is Goal Oriented

Cognitive therapists work with clients to identify and prioritise problems that the client is currently experiencing and to identify mutually agreed goals. The primary therapeutic work is then working with the client on these problems towards these goals, reviewing the problem and goal list on a regular basis. Cognitive therapists work strategically, planning several steps ahead, anticipating the stages of change that will enable a client to achieve his or her goals and the likely obstacles.

Sometimes, the current problem is a historical problem. For example, a client might find it difficult to begin working on homework assignments because a previous experience of therapy led to the belief that 'this won't help'. Until this belief is examined in the light of the previous experience the client might well be unable to progress.
