What is Solution-Focused Brief Therapy?

Home » Treatment Therapies » Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy is a short-term, goal-oriented therapeutic approach that focuses on the present and future. SFBT therapists believe that you already have the skills you need to achieve your goals, but you might need assistance identifying and applying them.

SFBT is suitable for a range of mental health concerns. If you are interested in achieving a goal, working on interpersonal skills, or identifying personal strengths, SFBT could benefit you.

Your therapist will ask you what your life would look like if the problem you bring to counseling didn’t exist. Your counselor will work with you to identify ways to make this imagined possibility a reality.
