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 an approach to counselling that is brief and 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 the BRIEF 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 could be of help in his or her life.

BRIEF is also committed to being able to work not only with the rich and famous but also with the poor and homeless and therefore offers therapy on a no-fee basis to the referred clients of the public sector in significant need.
