Solution Focused Therapy

Who is Solution Focused Therapy for?

Solution Focused Therapy, also known as Solution-Focused Brief Therapy or SFBT, is an approach developed by Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg in the 1970s and is thought to help individuals, couples, families and children with a number of emotional and psychological problems.

How Does Solution Focused Therapy Work?

Solution Focused Therapy is a time-limited approach that focuses on finding solutions to current problems. Therapists help clients to identify and utilise their strengths in order to build solutions with a rigorous focus on what can be achieved and not on what can’t.

“My husband and I tried a number of counsellors in Fulham before we found The British CBT & Counselling Service. It was such a different experience to the ones we had had before and this time it actually seems to have worked! I would recommend that if you are struggling in your relationship you should try them”.
