Solution Focused Brief Therapy works on the premise that every person has the necessary resources within them to make changes and find solutions. They just need a little guidance in being shown how.
This type of therapy is quite different from many other types of psychotherapy. This approach does not focus on the past. Instead, it focuses on what the client wants to achieve in the here and now as well as the future. This type of therapy allows clients to construct a concrete vision of what their preferred future will be like, rather than dwelling on past problems.
It is an enjoyable and positive process, highlighting a client’s strengths and resources, therefore enabling them to make solid changes in a short period of time.
