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.

Yet most of us pay only lip-service to the values of the communities we belong to, doing little or nothing to help them flourish.

On the other hand, there are those who are able to bring some passion to the game. They explore what they think and feel about who they are, where they fit in the grand scheme of things, their purpose, and what it all means to them.

Thermometers and Thermostats

Which one are you? A thermometer measures the ambient temperature of its milieu. It checks and reports. A thermostat on the other hand responds to its environment. It also checks, but then it makes little adjustments… it actually influences the environment. You might say that a thermometer is a rather passive receptor, and a thermostat […]
