Solution-focused therapy (SFT) is a brief, strengths-based approach to therapy that emphasizes the client's desired future rather than the problem that brought them into therapy. The focus is on finding solutions to the client's challenges and working towards their goals, rather than dwelling on the past or exploring the root causes of their problems.
In solution-focused therapy, the therapist works with the client to identify their goals and what they would like to change in their life. The therapist then uses a variety of techniques, such as questioning, scaling, and miracle questions, to help the client identify their strengths, resources, and successes.
The therapist and client work together to identify small, concrete steps that the client can take to move toward their desired future. The focus is on creating a positive and hopeful therapeutic environment, where the client feels supported and encouraged to make meaningful changes in their life.
Solution-focused therapy is designed to be brief and efficient and typically involves just a few sessions.
This approach is well-suited for clients who are motivated to make positive changes in their life, and who are seeking practical, solution-oriented strategies to address their challenges.
