A therapy goal is a specific objective that a person wants to achieve during their therapy sessions. It helps to provide direction and focus to therapy and can lead to improved mental health and well-being. Having a clear goal can also help individuals track their progress and stay motivated throughout the therapy process.
"If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time." –Zig Ziglar Setting goals enables focus, and focusing on your goals can help to maintain discipline in reaching your goals. This is especially helpful if you suffer as a result of being disorganised and unstructured in your personal life and wish to experience a sense of achievement. You may find that as a result of setting goals that as you begin to achieve your goals, you might begin to experience a feel-good sensation that comes from the release of dopamine in the brain.
Some potential benefits of dopamine include improved mood, motivation, focus, memory, and movement control.
