Traditional therapy has historically been problem-focused. It has analysed a person’s problems from where they started and how those problems have an effect on that person’s life. However, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is an evidence based approach and is short term, goal orientated, with the focus on client strengths, and life without the problem.
SFBT works toward changing a client’s view to bring about significant positive change by concentrating on a preferred future rather than a problematic past and by focusing on resources rather than deficits. SFBT has proved effective with children, young people and adults.
SFBT is based on the concept that just because a problem is complicated, doesn’t mean its solution needs to be and involves a very different kind of thinking and talking – outside of the facts of the problem. It is a strength-based and predominantly future-focused, making it ideal for situations requiring rapid engagement and co-operation, often with only having a small number of sessions.
A consultation is not necessary and we can get straight to work in the first session. If you would like me to help, please do contact me.
