Brief Solution Focused Therapy

Michelle Find Your SparkOur Psychologist Michelle Shavia – from Find Your Spark, provides Children or Parents of children attending MTEP schools with Brief Solution Focused Therapy. Solution-Focused brief therapy – is an approach to psychotherapy based on solution-building rather than problem-solving. Although it acknowledges present problems and past causes, it predominantly explores an individual’s current resources and future hopes – helping them to look forward and use their own strengths to achieve their goals.

Who can benefit? Solution-focused therapy has been found successful in helping a vast array of people, including children presenting with  Social and Emotional Difficulties, Anxiety, Low Self Esteem & School Refusal, as well as parents with communication difficulties, stress and anxiety, drug and alcohol abuse, behavioural problems, eating disorders and relationship difficulties to name a few.

Individuals are provided with four confidential 1:1 therapy sessions to begin to build on strengths and to become unstuck. A small change is all that is needed to make a big difference.


The expected benefits and outcomes include:

 Improved Emotional Well-Being

 Reduction in Anger & Conflict

                                        Improved Reintegration & School Attendance

                                        Improved Resilience & Psychosocial Functioning

                                        Reduction in Negative Feelings and Externalising Behaviour
