Renowned Psychologist Shows Change is Constant with Solution Focused Brief Therapy
A renowned British psychologist is proving that constant change is the key to happiness by offering solution focussed brief therapy (SFBT) sessions as an alternative to traditional techniques. By encouraging her clients to focus on the future in order to overcome their pasts, Wendy Dignan is helping legions of Londoners overcome mental illnesses through the hugely effective yet underutilised field of SFBT.
Based on social constructionist philosophy, SFBT is a niche technique that encourages individuals to focus on the achievement of personal goals, as opposed to the problems that triggered their need for help in the first place. By fixating on the future and expelling demons of the past, SFBT empowers clients with the motivation to move forward in their lives. At its core SFBT focuses on two key aspects. The first supports the exploration of preferred futures. The second delves into positive areas in which pieces of that preferred future may already exist. The combination of these two is what creates powerful changes that endure long after sessions have come to an end.
“Solution focused therapists believe that change is constant, and I couldn’t agree more with this philosophy. Often, the most effective road to recovery involves focussing on the future, as opposed to continually delving into the pains of the past. By helping people identify aspects of their lives they’d like to change, as well as pinpointing goals they’d like to achieve SFBT is a hugely effective therapy technique,” explains Dignan.
Using a blend of respectful curiosity and genuine rapport, Dignan invites clients to envision the future that they’ve always dreamed of. This includes delving into backstories, as well as highlighting strengths and resources that can be utilised in the goal achieving process. By encouraging clients to identify parts of their lives that already align with future visions of happiness Dignan arms clients with inherent inspiration. By bringing these small successes to the forefront of the mind, clients can use these triumphs to fuel the materialisation of their preferred future.
Once clients have pinpointed the position they’d like to reach, Dignan works with the client to develop a bespoke plan of action that supports the ongoing achievement of personal goals. As SFBT focusses on facilitating long-term life changes it encompasses both small increments and large scale lifestyle transformations.
