Solution-Focused Therapy

Solution-Focused therapy
Adapted from Counselling Directory

Solution-focused therapy is an approach to psychotherapy based on solution-building rather than problem-solving. Although it acknowledges present problems and past causes, it predominantly explores an individual’s current resources and future hopes – helping them to look forward and use their own strengths to achieve their goals.

The approach is based on seven basic philosophies and assumptions.
These are:
Change is both constant and certain.
Emphasis on what is changeable and possible.
Clients must want to change.
Clients are the experts and outline their own goals.
Clients have resources and their own strengths to solve and overcome their problems.
Therapy is short-term.
Focus on the future – history is not essential.

These concepts are key building blocks in the formation of the solution-focused approach.

Our next Meeting at The Taylor Hill Therapy Centre (HD4 6HF) will deal with these ideas.
