Couples Therapy Using Solution Focused Brief Therapy

Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a highly effective approach in helping couples to navigate issues affecting their relationships.  If you have experienced couples therapy in the past, you would find this approach radically different.

Why is that?  Simply because this approach is the only approach that really isn’t interested in the problem that brought you to therapy in any way.  What I’m interested in is the direction that you would like your relationship to take going forward.

From our first meeting, we will explore not only where you want the relationship to go but what resources you have within you to make that a potential reality.  I also want to explore the details related to that potential future.

Does this mean we don’t talk about issues?  The simple answer is, no.    What we’re aiming to do is put the issues more in the context and at the heart of the potential solution that we will discover together.  This puts each of you back in control of the problem which in turn leads to less arguing, better communication and cooperation in finding a solution that works for both of you.

How do clients tend to respond to this?  Generally, they say that they are so happy to be talking to a therapist for whom they don’t have to talk about the problem!

I’m here to help so please get in touch if you would like more information or to book an appointment.
