Reality Therapy was developed by Dr William Glasser. The essence of Reality Therapy is that we are all responsible for what we choose to do.
We may be products of our past, but we are not victims of the past unless we choose to be.
This therapy is not a long drawn out process. The therapist engages the client in an evaluation of all their relationships, exploring what they want and how effective they are at getting what they want.
Much of the significant work of the counselling process is for the client to determine what they want to change, explore other possible behaviours and formulate an action plan.
The process of creating and carrying out plans enables people to gain effective control over their lives.
