Solutions Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)

This therapeutic intervention concentrates on finding solutions in the present time and exploring hope for the future. Goal setting is at the foundation of SFBT. The therapist will begin by questioning what you hope to get out of counselling, specifically, how your life would change if you took the necessary steps. One of the key questions the therapist asks is called the miracle question: “If a miracle occurred while you were asleep tonight, what changes would you notice in your life tomorrow?” This opens up your mind to creative thinking and, again, to setting goals and developing a clear plan that will lead to life-changing solutions.
