Solution Focused Therapy
Counselling that is Short Term and and Goal Focused

Solution Focused Therapy is a short-term counselling approach centered around achieving specific goals. Instead of delving into the reasons behind a problem, the focus is on finding actionable steps to move forward. This counselling method emphasises identifying resources, leveraging strengths, and enhancing one's ability to overcome challenges.

In Solution Focused Therapy, we typically start by examining the interventions you've already attempted, pinpointing what's effective and what's not. Then, we explore how we can leverage your existing strengths in different aspects of your life. While sometimes adjustments are necessary, drawing from your existing knowledge can make change more attainable.

Solution Focused Therapy is a versatile approach that can be utilsed independently or alongside other therapeutic counselling modalities. Its adaptability makes it valuable in addressing a wide range of issues, including:

  • Depression: By emphasising strengths and resources, Solution Focused Therapy can empower you to envision and work towards a brighter future.


  • Anxiety: This approach helps by identifying steps you can take to manage anxiety symptoms and build confidence in your ability to cope any challenges that may arise.

  • Relationship Problems: By focusing on solutions rather than dwelling on problems, Solution-Focused Therapy can facilitate communication, foster mutual understanding, and promote collaborative problem-solving.


  • Substance Abuse: By highlighting existing strengths and successes, this therapy can increase motivation for change and support in identifying strategies to overcome substance use.


  • Trauma: Solution-Focused Therapy can help recognise resilience and identify coping strategies.


  • Stress Management: By identifying and building upon existing coping mechanisms, Solution-Focused Therapy equips you with practical tools to effectively manage stress and enhance overall well-being.


  • Goal Achievement: Whether in personal or professional contexts, counselling can help clarify goals, develop action plans, and overcome obstacles.


Solution Focused Therapy offers a collaborative and goal-oriented approach that can be tailored to meet the unique needs of individuals.
