Solution-Focused Therapy

Solution-Focused therapy is a future oriented therapy that focuses the majority of its time on what the client wants to be different in their life rather than on the problems that caused them to seek help in the first place. Issues in the past are used to learn about resources and previous success which can help the client and therapist better attend to the changes (large and small) happening in the present that will lead to the client’s preferred future. By bringing small successes to awareness, and supporting clients to repeat their successful choices and behaviors, the therapist helps to facilitate client movement towards the goals and preferred future that has been identified.
