Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)

I am located in South Dakota and I am certified and trained to provide online Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) in South Dakota, Minnesota, and Florida.

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is one of the world's most widely used therapeutic treatments. Unlike traditional forms of therapy that take time to analyze problems, pathology, and past life events, SFBT concentrates on finding solutions in the present and exploring one’s hope for the future in order to find a quick and pragmatic resolution of one’s problems. This method takes the approach that you know what you need to do to improve your own life and, with the appropriate therapy and questioning, are capable of finding the best solutions.

Solution-Focused Therapy is currently used for most emotional and mental health problems that other forms of counseling are used to treat, such as:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Self-esteem
  • Personal stress and work-related stress
  • Relationship problems

SFBT is best used when a client is trying to reach a particular goal, or overcome a particular problem.

In a solution-focused therapy session, the therapist and client will work collaboratively to set goals and find solutions together, to overcome the problem or issue.

The therapist will ask questions to gain an understanding of the client's strengths and inner resources that they might not have noticed before. The therapist will also use complimentary language to bring awareness to and support the strengths that the client does have, to shift the client's focus to a more solution oriented, positive outlook, rather than ruminating on the problem unaware of the strengths and abilities that they do have.
