What is Possibility Therapy?
Possibility Therapy focuses on people’s unique life experiences and perceptions that help shape their worldview. By acknowledging these perspectives, the therapists can guide their clients into seeing other possible perspectives toward a life challenge or mental health concern. They then assist individuals in honing in on their inner resources that can help shift their perspective, thus, shifting the problem or challenge.
Possibility Therapy’s goal is to shift a person’s focus from their deficits, or what is not working for them, to the desire to discover solutions to their problems. Instead of seeing your problem as something that can defeat you, your therapist will encourage you to see the opportunities resulting from your challenge or mental health concerns. They will help you set realistic goals and explore potential resources to help you achieve your goal.
This approach to counseling can be helpful for individuals, groups, families, and couples with a wide range of mental health concerns.
