Some therapeutic approaches go deep to understand the root psychological sources of your problems, while others focus mainly on the solutions. Solution-focused therapy (SFT), sometimes called Solution-focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), focuses intently on finding solutions to your mental and emotional issues and problems to get you on track to achieving your goals in less time.

Solutions-Focused Therapy helps you develop problem solving skills by focusing on the impact of your present decisions on your future. SFT focuses less on why a problem exists or how it came about and more on what can be done to solve it.

If you have unresolved problems that are affecting your daily life, solution-focused therapy may be the answer. Wherever you are located in New York from Albany to Yonkers or even Niagara Falls, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Solution-focused Counseling Benefits

The benefits of solution-focused therapy are numerous, but here are just a few:

  • Greater empowerment by becoming goal-oriented.
  • Control over healing and problem resolution.
  • Quicker resolution of your problems when compared to longer-term therapies.
  • Lower overall treatment costs in comparison with conventional treatments.

Solution-focused therapy is helpful for people suffering from a range of mental health concerns and disorders, as well as those who are going through tough situations or big life changes. You may find that it’s exactly what you need to move forward in life in a meaningful way.
