Solution Focused Counselling involves deep attentive listening and getting to know the client as a person first. It focuses on finding what’s missing rather than getting too bogged down in analysis and explanation. It recognises the importance that language and words play in creating our reality and in the healing process. The types of questions asked influence the answers received. This helps us to look at things differently and explore new possibilities. It promotes a creative environment in which views are broadened, things that have been successful in the past are reviewed resulting in new possibilities being considered in finding solutions.
These discussions may also involve exploring the impact of how childhood scripting and programming by family, community, and institutions might have on our belief system and behaviours, as well as practical suggestions to understand and manage anxiety and associated conditions
Sessions can involve in-person at the clinic, telehealth face-to-face on camera or just by phone = it's the client's preference.
Face-to-face might involve hypnosis inviting the client into a gentle trance to further absorb and reflect on the things that have been discussed during the session.
