16 May and 17 May

£190

This course will be delivered by the experienced Solution Focused (SF) therapist, author and international trainer in SF practice, Kidge Burns, and co-hosted by Susannah Stobart, SLT and SF practitioner.

Solution focused brief therapy is a different way of having conversations with clients. The SF mindset, combined with a set of useful tools or techniques, helps clinicians to:

  • Focus on the strengths and resources of the client, rather than dwelling on the problems.
  • Be truly client centred, following the client’s lead.
  • Work efficiently and effectively to help achieve positive outcomes, in relatively short time frames.
  • Develop a collaborative approach through non-judgemental, open communication and mutual respect.
  • Facilitate clients to notice increased confidence and signs of meaningful change in their lives.
