How we work

  • We foster a collaborative approach nurtured by motivation and commitment:

    Coming for therapy is something one does not enter in lightly. We expect clients to be in a place where they feel motivated and ready to want to engage in the process, with a view of building the life skills and awareness that will enable them to overcome the difficulties that bring them to therapy. The process can only work, when we work in partnership, which calls for commitment. After an initial pre-assessment session we therefore require our clients to follow through with their therapy programmes, which are designed to contain a minimum of 8 sessions each.

    An action plan geared at progress:

    Based on Action Based Brief Therapy (ABBT) the work plans we develop around the specific needs and goals of each client are highly strategic and incorporate practical tools and tasks that are relevant to the particular disconnection experienced and efficient in achieving progress in a brief and determined time frame.

    While the work plans we elaborate are unique according to the distinct objectives of each client the therapy programs offered follow a structural guideline structure that is tangible and represent an important reference as you proceed and progress towards success:

    I. INITIAL ASSESSMENT - UNDERSTANDING THE SITUATION AND DESIRED GOALS (upto 1.5 hours)
    II. CONSOLIDATION OF GOALS & ACTION PLAN
    III. FOLLOW ON SESSIONS - COLLABORATIVE WORKING TOWARDS YOUR ACTION PLAN (II + III = 8 sessions)

Our Working Model

  • At RELATE KENYA we build on goal focused solutions. Our working model follows the principles of Action Based Brief Therapy (ABBT) - a Solution focused brief therapy (SFBT) approach with a strong emphasis on action based work plans.

    What is different about ABBT?

    ABBT differs from other schools of 'talk therapy' in that it is goal focused, implies the establishment of a concrete collaborative work plan and is time-limited to increase efficiency.

    ABBT is therefore highly strategic, exploratory, and solution-based rather than problem-oriented. It is less concerned with how a problem arose than with the current factors sustaining it and preventing change.
