Solution Focused Studio

The Solution Focused Studio is committed to maintaining, developing and promoting the highest standards of Solution Focused practice (SFP). In response to demand and in addition to our private practice, we run dynamic professional Solution-Focused Practitioner training courses and practical, informative evidence-based workshops that help us share our passion for positive mental wellbeing. We have worked with schools (pupils, staff and parents), local authorities, the charity sector and businesses. 

Having completed extensive training and study into the Solution-Focused approach ourselves and using it every day in our own professional practice, we are well-placed to deliver highly practical training, having studied 'what works' to make courses useful, effective, interesting and fun, with an emphasis on creating a supportive learning environment.

This part of the website is currently being updated - thank you for your patience.
We offer a range of bespoke services, so please contact us to find out how we can help you.



Elaine Way is the founder of the Solution Focused Studio and a highly experienced, accredited Clinical Hypnotherapist and Solution Focused Brief Therapist. Specialising in anxiety and anxiety-related issues, Elaine has extensive post-graduate training in Solution-Focused Brief Therapy with BRIEF London, alongside leading figures in the Solution-Focused field, holding a Diploma and Advanced Practice Certificate.

Elaine is also an NCFE accredited Solution-Focused supervisor, supporting other practitioners in their work. With a particular interest in the history and development of the Solution-Focused approach, she is keen to preserve and promote the original tenets of the approach and the utilisation of rapport and innovation in response to clients. Professional training in clinical hypnosis has led to years of research into brief therapy, language, communication and neuroscience, harnessing what we know about the brain to work directly with thought and behaviour patterns. Elaine is passionate about communicating the science of the brain to adults and teens, delivering dynamic presentations and workshops across the UK, empowering others to create effective change and improvements in their performance and wellbeing with evidence-based tools. When time allows, Elaine writes for industry publications and is also a professional musician.
