Early Help - Solution Focused Therapy

The Solution Focused approach works by exploring, in detail, a client’s preferred future, where their best hopes from the work have come true. The Solution Focused approach then identifies the possible resources and strengths the client has for achieving that future. Thousands of successful cases, including many which involved clients previously considered ‘untreatable’, have confirmed the belief that everyone has the resources to move towards and even to achieve their preferred futures.

The essence of Solution Focused Practice is:

  • To look for resources rather than deficits
  • To explore possible and preferred futures
  • To explore what is already contributing to those futures
