Solution Focused Brief Therapy
When moving on from past mistakes and struggles, it’s always important to talk about the causes, as well as the effects they have had on your life. But if you dwell on them too much, you may never be able to leave your past behind.
This is why, we at Merito would like to present the option of talking about your future instead, with our solution focused brief therapy. Take it from the name itself – with this therapy, we’d like to hear more about the solutions you have in mind. Instead of discussing what’s happened previously, we’d like to talk to you more about what you want to do next, as well as the little things you’ve already done to help make this a reality.
How Does It Work?
Solution focused brief therapy involves a lot of conversation, but with a slightly different twist: instead of talking about your past, we ask you to talk about your future. Through these conversations, we hope to help you bring your personal goals and aspirations into sharp focus. We want to know how you feel about your past, but we’re more driven to ask you how you want to change your future.
Here are the types of questions you can expect to answer:
- Scaling Questions. These types of questions are answerable from a scale of 0 to 10, where we ask you about your progress, and you answer by giving a concrete rating from that scale. With these questions, we let you self-evaluate your progress.
How Can These Help You?
- Attain a better perspective about your life now to prepare yourself for a better future. Ultimately, solution focused brief therapy will give you a chance to regroup and get your life back in order. Acknowledge your past, talk about your present struggles, and discuss the steps you plan to take – until finally, your ideal future will become a reality.
At Merito, we’d like to help you understand that, while dwelling on your problems is a normal thing, acting on them is a much more effective solution. But it’s equally important to focus on the things you’ve already done for yourself to create a better future. We at Merito believe that no step is too little, as long as you’re moving closer to your goal. Come see us today and let us help you take that next step with confidence.
