Suggested Solution for John consist of 2 parts.

Solution focused therapy , is a type of talking therapy which focuses on what clients want to achieve through therapy rather than on the problem(s) that made them to seek help.

The approach does not focus on the past, but instead, focuses on the present and future. The therapist/counselor uses respectful curiosity to invite the client to envision their preferred future and then therapist and client start attending to any moves towards it whether these are small increments or large changes. To support this, questions are asked about the client’s story, strengths and resources, and about exceptions to the problem.
