Solution Focussed Therapy – Greg Turner

Greg Turner  Quals: B App Sc, Grad Dip App Sc (App Psych), Cert GMH, MAPS

Solution Focussed Brief Therapy: Solution Focussed Brief Therapy (SFBT) is another excellent practical and pragmatic therapy useful for our busy lives that assists individuals to develop and refine their own problem-solving processes. Through SFBT the client identifies the future that they want and with the therapist explores potential ways to achieve their goals in a realistic manner that can be implemented. Sometimes a person’s goals may be unrealistic and so the client is encouraged to explore alternatives and be adaptable in their thinking and their approach to problems. As the name suggests, SFBT is not a long-term therapy, but aims to provide the client with processes to find solutions in their lives in as short a timeframe as possible.

Counselling Approach: Greg has been practicing psychology for almost 20 years and takes a practical and pragmatic approach to counselling utilising a relaxed and informal approach which recognises that as human beings we all have times in our lives when things don’t go well, sometimes we fall down, and sometimes we need a bit of help. Greg is committed to helping his clients find solutions to their problems, to improve their situations in life, and to recover from the nasty things that life sometimes throws at us. Greg utilises humanistic approaches such as existential therapy (Logotherapy), interpersonal therapy, and Mindfulness, as well as practical approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focussed Brief Therapy. For single event trauma Greg has achieved many successes with Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) techniques.
