Solution Focused Brief Therapy

Solution Focused Brief Therapy

You're feeling stressed and unhappy with your life. You want to change your life but you don't know how to go about it. With the multitude of therapies available and therapists to consult, it can be even more confusing than helpful to get the support you need. Not to mention that visiting a traditional clinic takes time, and effort, and can make you feel awkward as you express your thoughts to a therapist in person.


Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) could be the answer and the good news is that you can book a private online therapy consultation from the comfort of your home with Blue Oak Counseling Services. 


What is Solution-Focused Brief Therapy?


Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is an evidence-based and goal-focused therapeutic approach that includes positive psychology ideas and practices. Rather than concentrating on problems, this approach helps clients improve by creating solutions. SFBT can help in creating, motivating, attaining, and maintaining a person's desired behavioural change that evokes positive emotions and is future-focused.


Therapists practicing SFBT start by creating a detailed explanation of how the client's life will change if the problem is solved. After carefully examining the client's past experiences and behavioral repertoire, the therapist and client work together to create a workable, long-term solution that the client can easily adopt.

What You Can Expect from Our Solution-Focused Brief Therapy

Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) has been around since the 1990’s but you may still be unfamiliar with it. SFBT focuses on solutions instead of problems, and aims to have clients find their own solutions as opposed to relying on the therapist to provide them. SFBT employs specific techniques, such as building rapport, setting goals, and scheduling regular sessions.


Studies show that SFBT can be very effective in treating depression, eating disorders, addiction, parenting concerns, and more.

SFBT is a short-term therapy which has been proven to be more effective than longer therapies. This is because it focuses on the problems you want to solve, rather than the problems you have.


In this form of therapy, the client takes an active role in their treatment by collaboratively working with the therapist to identify their goals for treatment.


The therapist then helps them come up with solutions for those goals, including behavioral strategies or personal change techniques that will help them achieve those goals.


The focus of SFBT is on solution finding, not problem solving. It looks at what's working well and what needs changing in order to improve your quality of life instead of trying to fix everything all at once.

What Are The Techniques In SFBT?

With therapy, a therapist uses questions, scales, empathy, and compliments to help people recognize the skills and strengths they developed to get through tough times. They learn to focus on their successes, not their failures.


The approach lets them come up with new solutions quickly and solve problems on their own. There are no wasted sessions because therapists focus on what's working instead of what's wrong. SFBT is effective because it can be tailored for individual needs and take less time than other types of therapy.


It is efficient because it focuses on clients' goals rather than dwelling in the past or constantly going over old ground.


If you're coping with mental challenges like emotional pain, stress, sorrow, dysfunctional relationships, a lack of motivation, and more, Blue Oak Counseling Services offers expert Solution-Focused Brief Therapy along with a range of other mental health services.
