So often I find people considering therapy, think of therapy or psychotherapy as something they will have to attend for week after week, month after month.

As a Brief Interventional Therapist, this just simply isn't the case for everyone. It for some clients, of course, some work just takes time, but there are clients for whom very brief interventions can help them move forward very rapidly in just a few sessions or hours work. This can be the case, not just with recent onset simple problems, but sometimes with very complex life long issues.

Solution Focused Brief-Therapy is a powerful tool to achieve change that can be rapidly effective in a wide range of personal development and health issues.

It differs from analytic forms of therapy, such as psychoanalytic or psychodynamic forms, in that it focuses on practically addressing current issues and relationship patterns, rather than analysing causes, such as subconscious impulses or childhood trauma.

SFBT is a collaborative, pragmatic approach where therapist and client work as a mutually respectful team with equal power in the relationship.

In practice, using Solution Focused Therapy, I will approach working with you from the following perspective:-

  • I believe you are inherently resourceful and already have all the necessary resources and creativity that you need in order to reach some kind of therapeutic resolution.
  • In order to achieve resolution, together we focus on finding solutions to the issue, rather than the nature of pathology of the issue itself.
  • Together we focused of what a “preferred future” might be, and become aware of ways in which this is already happening.
  • I respect your uniqueness and individuality, so no two client solutions will be the same.

My aim is to help YOU find the solution to your issues that fits YOU.
