Enhances self-awareness - really ‘Know Thyself’.
Helps answer questions such as; “Who/where am I? Where do I want to go? What are my options?”
A relatively short-term form of intervention
A facilitative rather than directive form of development
Challenges incongruent and unrealistic thoughts/behaviour
Assumes that clients are motivated to do the developmental work required
Action orientated, i.e. aimed at changing behaviour rather than just talking about it
