Who we are

At Solutions Focus Consulting, we embody a unique approach that interweaves a Solution Focus with Community Engagement, empowering individuals and organizations to unlock their full potential and achieve their aspirations.

Our aim is to help you find the right solutions for your personal growth, organizational growth, or practice.

Mission and Values

Our mission at Solutions Focus Consulting is to empower organizations and individuals by guiding them in finding the most suitable solutions that foster transformative and sustainable growth. 

We are committed to understanding each unique challenge and applying a strategic, solution-focused approach to drive meaningful, lasting change.

Our Principles

Solutions Focus Consulting is grounded in five core principles that ensure the creation of impactful, lasting solutions through a collaborative, client-aligned process. Firstly, we emphasize goal-driven activities, setting measurable targets for concrete outcomes. Secondly, we employ “miracle questions” to delve into challenges and catalyze client-led, actionable solutions. Thirdly, exception-finding questions allow us to leverage situations where issues do not exist, informing our solution development. Fourthly, our community engagement is a thoughtful blend of scientific precision and artistic sensitivity, fostering strong, sustainable community relationships. Lastly, our model respects both the structure of science and the flexibility of art. 


Our engagement progresses through four levels: sharing information as a foundation, consulting to incorporate community insights, planning together to co-create solutions, and implementing solutions collaboratively for shared success. This approach ensures that Solutions Focus Consulting doesn’t just solve problems but fosters strategic, sustainable growth for clients and communities alike.
