Solution Focused Therapy

What is Solution Focused Therapy?

Solution focused or solution focused brief therapy as its sometimes called is based on the premiss that holding a discussion that focuses on results is better than a discussion that focuses on the problem.

In this form of therapy there is no need to get into discussions about your childhood or even your past. The emphasis during your sessions is firmly fixed on the present or the future, where you work towards lessening the impact that your current problems have on your life now.

This form of therapy finds its roots in the family therapy field. It was observed that too much time was spent discussing problems rather than working on solutions.  Given this starting point it is easy to see where solution focused therapy can be utilised in the family environment, couples counselling as well asd with individuals. It can address particular modern problems ranging from Life events with a high impact to everyday stress.
