Solution-Focused Therapy

Posted on: 9th July 2018

Certain issues worsen and need immediate attention. Rather than delving into your entire life story, sometimes you simply need to concentrate on the now. Therapists can address these pressing issues quickly with Solution-Focused Therapy.

What is Solution-Focused Therapy?


Solution-Focused Therapy, also known as Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), is a short-term therapy focused on pinpointing immediate solutions. Your therapist will assist you in achieving your vision of resolution by setting goals and making a game plan with you. In addition to resolving present issues, your therapist will provide you with the tools to resolve issues faster in the future.

What issues might Solution-Focused Therapy be used for?

  • Abuse
  • Relationship issues
  • Familial issues
  • Addiction
  • Child behavioural issues

Due to its short-term structure, SFBT does not typically treat those with psychiatric disorders, such as Schizophrenia, but it can positively impact your well-being.

What are the benefits of Solution-Focused Therapy?


Other than the speed at which you will reach a solution, the benefit of SFBT is that problems will be minimized or even prevented in the future because you and your therapist will address today’s issues and tomorrow’s worries.
