A short term goal-focused therapeutic approach which focuses on helping the individual change by constructing solutions rather than investigating problems. Articulating what the impact of positive changes will be like on their lives is often more important than understanding what led to the problem.

Everyone has the ability to change; the solutions are often already present in the individual’s life which is the basis for ongoing change. The individual can envision a clear and detailed picture of how it will be when things are better which creates hope and expectation, making the solution more practical and realistic. Goals direct the therapy and keep it focused and brief. Then individuals’ strengths and resources are concentrated on as a way of helping the individual to recognise how to use these to bring about change.
