The Centre for Solution Focused Practice

Therapy & Counselling

Solution Focused Brief Therapy is an approach to counselling that is brief and Solution Focused Brief Therapy is also an approach to counselling that is proven to be effective. Research shows it to bring about lasting change on average in less than 5 sessions and in up to 83% of referrals. It can be brief because it is future-focused and because it works with the strengths of those who come by making the best use of their resources, and it can bring about lasting change precisely because it aims to build solutions rather than solve problems.

People come to BRIEF, and now 'meet' with us on-line or by phone, with an enormously diverse range of troubles including stress, depression, anxiety, sleep-problems, drug and alcohol problems, relationship difficulties with both children and partners, histories of abuse and oppression, pain, mental health problems and work-related concerns. On the basis of the research evidence BRIEF will work with anyone who thinks that Solution Focused Brief Therapy or Coaching could be of help in their life.

The BRIEF team has experience of working with people facing long-standing, life-limiting conditions and has also, more occasionally, worked with the rich and famous and our teaching reflects this diversity of experience.

Taking our clients seriously.

A question recently raised the issue of just how we listen to people and the assumptions that we bring, or do not bring, to our conversations with clients. Evan George responds.
