Solution focused

The psychotherapeutic model I most often follow is Solution-Focused Brief Therapy.

It is called ‘solution-focused’ because it spends only as much time as needed to understand the problem, and as much time as possible helping the client discover solutions. It is a ‘strengths-based’ approach precisely because it looks at the strengths and resources a client has, and doesn’t get bogged down in problem-talk.

It is called a ‘brief therapy’ because, on average, the number of sessions required for the client to feel that they have achieved their counselling goals is less than through traditional means. But each client is unique so I can offer no guarantees on how many sessions your own particular goals might take to meet.
