What are the issues that are most impacting the quality of your life? What is the frequency, intensity, duration or impact on your life from this issue?
Defining those issues is about the first thing we will do together. We want to create goals that are relevant to you. And these descriptions should be specific with numbers or consequences so that we can track progress at the beginning of every session.
Progress means that issue has gone down. 100% resolved means that issue has gone away completely. It is reasonable to expect at least a 50% reduction in the issues that most impact the quality of your life.
When we get to issues being 30-40% resolved, we find that the biggest problem you were having in your life, is no longer your biggest problem.
