There is no such thing as a difficult client – a 2 day workshop in Stratford upon Avon

“There is no such thing as a difficult client”-

a Solution Focused Approach to useful and effective conversations with your clients

Workshop on January 19-20th with A. Biba Rebolj

“It’s only words, and words are all I have to take your heart away” (Bee Gees)

Creative power of words: when words perform their magic they bring into the world what until that moment had not existed. They create new worlds. It is into these new worlds that Solution Focused Practitioners invite their clients to step.

In this workshop A. Biba Rebolj will teach you how to make words work for your client whoever your client is. You will never have to turn your client away. You will be able to work with every possible problem imaginable. More than twenty years of outcome studies show that no problem is outside the range of a Solution Focused approach. This workshop will therefore be as useful to therapists as it is to coaches, in fact, it will be invaluable for anyone whose job is to help people get the best from life – at work, at home, at school or wherever fulfilment and success are important.


This course will give you a way of thinking as well as a set of powerful, flexible and adaptable tools which will develop your practice and enhance your effectiveness. Solution Focused Practice has a set of conversational skills based on the principles of social construction theory and the creative power of words. You will learn how to interview in order to identify and maximise the skills your clients and colleagues bring to work. The workshop will be highly practical and it is expected that you will be able to use your new skills immediately.


The programme will provide explanations and chances to observe and practice each of the solution focused techniques. These will include:

  • Collaborative contracting
  • Envisioning successful futures
  • Discovering the best histories
  • Charting progress
  • Discovering hidden strengths
  • The power of appreciation
  • Generating co-operation
  • Single session live coaching
  • Five-minute coaching for busy clinicians, practitioners and managers
  • Resolving conflict
  • Converting stress to energy
  • Looking forward to the day
