Solution-focused Therapy can be helpful to people in a range of different circumstances. The work starts by exploring people’s hopes for the future. Conversations with the therapist will be focused on specific, clear and attainable goals. This approach assumes that people are already implementing solutions to their problems but may need some help to broaden their ‘repertoire’ of available solutions. This therapy helps people to identify coping strategies, exploring the history of inner skills and resources. Other topics of focus may include times when the problem has been less of an issue, drawing on learning from past successes and achievements.
