I have been practicing Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) since June 2012, and I have been fortunate to receive regular training from BRIEF in London, who are world leaders in the Solution Focused approach and its various applications. And in 2015, I earned my Diploma in Solution Focused Practice from them. 

Throughout my time practicing SFBT, I have become more and more passionate about the approach while making an intentional decision to focus solely on getting better and better at using it. The reason I have decided to do this is because of how the approach gives people hope at times where they often need it most and a confidence in their own abilities to make progress. This in line with the conversations that take place is part of what helps people make changes in such a short space of time.

This focus has enabled me to understand the finer details of the approach so that I can apply this knowledge in various settings. I have been able to work with young people, parents, couples, families and individuals all with varying things in their lives that they want to change, and to see them make the progress that they’re after is what keeps me going and focused on getting even better at what I do.

I have also made it a point to continue to pass on my learning to others through delivering workshops and trainings around how to use the approach. I am also a member of the United Kingdom Association for Solution Focused Practice (UKASFP) as well as being a UKASFP Accredited Solution Focused Practitioner.
