Solution-focused brief therapy

Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) supports the person in using their existing competencies in order to achieve their desired vision of the future. The main focus of therapy is on identifying solutions that harness the person’s existing strengths, resources and previous successes and employing these to bring about change. This usually involves exploring previous solutions that can be applied to the current problem, exploring the reasons why the problem did not occur on previous occasions when it could have occurred and encouraging the person to do more of what is working. All the while, the person is encouraged to gently and progressively experiment with possible solutions.
