Solution Focused Brief (SFBT)

Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a type of psychotherapy that is goal-oriented and focused on solutions rather than problems. SFBT is based on the idea that people have the ability to solve their own problems and find their own solutions. The therapist works with the client to identify their strengths, resources, and abilities, and helps them to develop a plan to achieve their goals.

SFBT is typically a short-term therapy that focuses on the present and future, rather than the past. The therapist and client work together to identify the client's goals and create a plan to achieve them. The therapy is structured around a set of questions and techniques designed to help the client identify their own strengths and resources, and to develop a plan to achieve their goals.

One of the key principles of SFBT is that small changes can lead to larger changes over time. The therapist works with the client to identify small, achievable goals that can be accomplished quickly, which can help to build momentum and confidence. SFBT is also collaborative, with the therapist and client working together as a team to develop solutions.

SFBT is often used in a variety of settings, including mental health clinics, schools, and hospitals. It has been used to help people with a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and relationship problems. SFBT can be used with individuals, couples, families, and groups.

Some of the techniques used in SFBT include scaling questions, miracle questions, and exceptions. Scaling questions help the client to identify their progress towards their goals, while the miracle question helps the client to envision a future where their problems have been solved. Exceptions are used to identify times when the client's problems are not present, and to help the client identify their own strengths and resources.

Overall, SFBT is a positive, collaborative, and goal-oriented therapy that can help people to identify their strengths and resources, and to develop a plan to achieve their goals. It is a flexible and adaptable therapy that can be used in a variety of settings, and has been shown to be effective in helping people to overcome a wide range of issues.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
