Ep 45 What is solution focused therapy?
With Gerry Spatharis From Talk Through It
Host Vicki Brown chats with Gerry from Talk Through It.
Gerry set up Talk Through It because she felt that there weren't enough services specifically helping teenagers and children with their problems in life. There has been a massive increase in anxiety and stress in children and adolescents, and is an area that needs much more support, particularly moving through the pandemic and post-covid. This has also had a knock-on effect on parents, carers and families. With this in mind, she decided to open up the service to adults as well. Any age welcome and any issue!
The Solution-focused approach looks at changing the thought pattern - what would life be like if the problem was no longer there? The problem is still acknowledged and listened to - as in Counselling - but solution-focused therapy is tailored differently and works to move us out of a cycle of negativity.
It is suitable for all but if you don't feel that the Solution-focused approach is right for you, it's not a problem. There are no tie-ins and you are under no obligation to continue sessions. If Gerry can't help, she will usually know someone who can!
