Abstract

Client directed, outcome informed counselling is not a model of counselling per se but a commitment to customising therapy in response to client preferences and treatment response. Different clients want different things from their counsellors and they do not always want what counsellors might wish to prescribe. Treatment is more likely to be successful when counsellors work on what their clients want to work on, when they use interventions the clients thinks will help, and when they regularly and objectively review treatment progress with clients. This chapter will describe the research informed rationale for why client preferences should be privileged as much as possible, the benefits of formally collecting and incorporating client feedback into treatment planning, and how to become intentionally client and results guided in practice. It will also highlight through stories from the field how this can take therapy in unexpected directions as therapists fit therapy around client preferences.
