Basically every student has the potential in learning, but not all students are able to reach their potential optimally. In the case of this study, students have good potential in terms of cognitive, which has an intelligence level that is classified as above average but has a very low achievement. This condition illustrates that students experience underachievement problems. One of which factors are the low motivation of students in learning. In addition, students do not understand their potential, are less able to plan for their future and show low achievement scores. This study uses a descriptive approach, action research. The research subjects were one student who was diagnosed as underachievement. The intervention given to the subject of this study used Cognitive Behavioral Counseling (CBC). The result of giving this intervention is that students are able to understand their potential such as their weakness and strengths, able to formulate the goals or direction of future goals specifically and realistically, be able to determine achievement targets in learning, and to improve the value of academic achievement from 29th to 24th out of 30 students.
