Reality Therapy

Reality Therapy is a cognitive behavioural approach in psychotherapy that is based on Glasser's Choice Theory. It focuses on identifying the 'quality world' of the client, the things he/she values, believes and desires. The therapist will then challenge the client to reflect on whether their choices and behaviours are consistent and helpful in regard to achieving the life quality desired, or whether they are unhelpful. The client is strongly encouraged to make choices and to take action and control of his/her own life.

Reality Therapy has been proven to be a useful tool for educational and behavioural issues at school for children and adolescents. It is also a helpful approach for addressing relationship problems.
