Solution Focused Coaching

Solution Focused approach has been refined over more than forty years. It was created by the late Dr. Steve D’Shazer and late Insoo Kim Berg. This approach has proliferated globally from counseling to coaching and organization development. As the name implies, it is focused on co-creating solutions with the client towards a preferred future. It focuses on solution rather than the problem. The result of this approach is often ‘brief’ for the simple reason that the client could arrive at the desired coaching outcome very quickly.



NLP tools and processes are particularly suited for coaching. You will be able to build rapport quickly and maintain it too. The multitude of processes will help the client to access past resources quickly and develop new behaviors and thinking that leads to progress towards outcome. These tools and processes include anchoring, NLP linguistic model, representational system and time line.


NLP coaching is different from other coaching in the form that the coach is able to work with emotion directly and quickly. It can also helps the client to re-pattern their thinking through linguistic and or sub-modalities shift. Hence, as an NLP coach you can work with clients who come with difficult emotions such as fear, phobia and anxiety.
