Brief Therapy®

We are an international group of multi-disciplined professionals committed to promoting Problem-Solving Brief Therapy®

The model was developed at the MRI in 1967. Since then, we have applied the Problem Resolution brief therapy model to many different human systems, where we promote constructive change management. We do this by bringing together many different voices, as well as leading figures in the field, to contribute and learn from the Brief Therapy Model.

Our vision is to create an international web of professionals who offer training, supervision and psychotherapy in the Problem-Solving Brief Therapy Model®, as well as conduct research to encourage the highest levels of efficacy and effectiveness in promoting change.

Change the

The Problem-Solving Model creates actionable change and produces results. Where traditional forms of therapy are an exercise in the pursuit of “Why?” we focus on the present and begin to see results within a few sessions. We have no patients, instead clients who are eager to change their situation and thrive.

Professionals in all the participating countries are certified and licensed in their professions, following the requirements in each place.

We are all available to offer individual, couple or family therapy for a variety of presenting problems like PTSD, depression, eating disorders, anxiety, performance anxiety, addictions,  coping for excessive drinking.

One of our specialties is working with one member of a dysfunctional system. For example, couple’s therapy with only one member of the couple or work related problems without your boss.
