Solution-Focused Therapy concentrates on our present and future situation, finding solutions to help us move forward as quickly as possible.
As a future-oriented, goal-directed therapy it places the emphasis on finding solutions to problems rather than exploring and analyzing the problems in any great depth. Through honest self-evaluation, harmful behaviors are challenged and negative beliefs are re-framed into rational thoughts. Working with a therapy specialist, self-esteem is reinforced through affirmations, compliments, goal setting, gratitude and validation. While it is a time-limited therapy, the effects of solution-focused therapy are often long lasting.
