Huge thanks to the VVDO for putting SOLUTION FOCUSED COACHING & THERAPY WITH HORSES in the spotlight on #SFWorldDay on May 3rd!  Working with horses in solution focused sessions has great added value because it brings in experiential elements. Interaction with the powerful creature ‘horse’, invites you to (re)discover your resources w.r.t. resilience, leadership, clarity, assertiveness, vulnerability, having balanced relationships, setting boundaries and much more.


On May 3rd, we organize a zoom session to introduce you to this powerful way of coaching and therapy. Based on solid experience of SF and a thorough knowledge of (working with) horses, we offer you a glimpse into what we do and what difference it can make, certainly now. We will give you background info and action: online working with horses ! 


An introduction to and the book Myriam is giving the world about the Bruges Model,  including the book itself (34 p.) Download the Introduction and the Booklet here

Looking forward to seeing you on May 3rd!

ОРКТ-флешмоб! Друзья, близится Международный День Ориентированного на решение подхода. Именно 3-го мая авторитетный журнал Family Process принял статью Стива де Шейзера «Смерть сопротивления» (с 17-ой попытки!)
Команда «Представь себе» предлагает всем, кто работает в ОРКТ и любит этот подход, найти друг друга и узнать кто есть кто. Для этого нужно:
1️⃣ До 3-го мая 2020 разместить у себя на страничке в фейсбуке пост с тегом #sfday
2️⃣ Пост содержит ответы на вопросы: 1) кто я; 2) из какого я города; 3) что мне нравится в ОРКТ ❤️
3️⃣ В посте можно разместить прикольную фотку или видеообращение от вас или вашей команды к коллегам 
3-го мая до 18:00 мы подведем итоги и составим карту русскоязычной практики ОРКТ 

Внимание! Мы сможем найти вас только если в вашем посте будет тег #sfday


We have decided to publish small parts of some interviews that we made during the last EBTA Conference. In them, our interviewees illustrated their views on the SF approach.The title of this video series is "AS IF YOU WERE WONDERING". I believe we will be able to publish everything on May 4th. We'll work on to share them on this website.

We are the World! Make it SF!

SF DAY w Polsce

Historia pokazuje nam, że ludzie mogą wiele. Możemy przetrwać lub przeżyć, ale możemy skorzystać, a nawet rozkwitnąć - ponieważ jesteśmy w stanie uczyć się na przyszłość, nawet w najbardziej niszczycielskich okolicznościach.

Nawet teraz, w okolicznościach COVID, możemy zastanowić się nad naszą osobistą wolnością i odpornością, bez względu na to, jaka jest obecnie nasza sytuacja. Możemy pomyśleć o lekcjach, które wyciągniemy z tej pandemii, i jak wykorzystać je dla lepszej przyszłości dla naszych klientów i nas samych.

Bądźmy SF!

Spotkajmy się więc, aby porozmawiać na temat „Pandemia czy szansa?”.

Chcielibyśmy zaprosić osoby, które mogą być zainteresowane, aby dołączyły do ​​nas 3 maja w godzinach od 10.30 do 12.00 GMT + 2 (czasu warszawskiego).

Moderatorzy: Mariola i Jacek Lelonkiewicz, superwizorzy i psychoterapeuci SFBT, Centrum Terapii Krótkoterminowej, Łódź.


Zobaczmy, dokąd zaprowadzi nas ten temat 😉.

Będzie to wydarzenie polskojęzyczne. Chcielibyśmy zaprosić Cię na platformę ZOOM -

Jonas Wells (S) and Guy Shennan (UK): 

Rockin’ the Eve of SF World Day with Jonas and Guy


This is an invitation to a unique virtual event…

Let’s start by imagining you are in a bar the night before a major SF event and you ran into (or planned to meet) some old and new friends of the SF community… There would be:


  • No guarantee that there will be any SF talk (but there might be)
  • Music (or other sounds), most possibly shared (via your computer sound)
  • Alcoholic beverages if you chose to partake (this bar being a “bring-your-own” type of establishment)


It would begin at 21.00 (Central European Time, that’s 20.00 British time), this Saturday, but you can drop in anytime (as long as the host hasn’t already gone to bed). Breakout rooms are a possibility.  All you had to do to join was to click this Zoom link:

Where to join an online event 



Here’s the SF World Day plan that we have suggested for Singapore and this region. Go to the FB event here


3rd May 7pm - 9pm (SGD Time) on Zoom:


7-715pm: check-in / intro


715 - 8pm: dinner / drinks / speed facilitation

Everyone will come to this session with your own drink / wine / beer / snack / dinner prepared in front of you for the session. You will prepare your own food and drinks. If it's too troublesome for you, just minimally a glass of juice or wine so that we can have a "virtual toast" together like last year! During this segment, I will prepare some questions to just facilitate some interaction and sharing in different breakout rooms which will be changed a few times so as to ensure maximum interactions.


8 - 830: breakout group sharing with the theme of "SF at its best"! We welcome anyone to come prepared to the session to share with the group how it was like for you this past year when SF was at its best. You are strongly encouraged to use various means and mediums of communicating this like food, wine, music, dance, art, movement, poem etc.


830 - 9: big group facilitation with the theme of "SF in Singapore/Asia at its best"!  We will come back together as a big group and use the "whiteboard" function in zoom to co-create a picture of "SF in Singapore/Asia at its best" and how it looks like for us as a community!


*to further enhance our celebrations and connect up with the larger SF community, I will be broadcasting our zoom session live on SF World Day facebook page.
