I have spent the summer completing my latest book. Solution Focused Therapy for the Helping Professions will be published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers on 15th December. You can pre-order now on Amazon, and I’ll put full details in the shop section of this site soon.

Over the years the thousands of people I have met through my workshops and seminars have confirmed the appeal of introducing Solution Focused ideas into their work. Many of these were counsellors who were seeking to refresh or update their skills, but a far greater number have been from other professions, and who felt the need develop the skills that would enable them to work more effectively with their clients. Sometimes this was because in the increasingly ‘results-driven’ culture of the public services their caseload was increasing. Others were seeking to improve their work-related communication skills. Whatever the reason, all were agreed that they wanted to work more effectively in helping their clients.

This book will be invaluable to anyone in the helping professions who are either already familiar with SFBT and want to improve their knowledge, or are looking for new and effective ways to communicate with and help the people they work with. More soon.
