Steve De Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg

The foundation on which SolutionSurfers is built would not exist without the pioneering work of Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg.

With their emphasis on solutions rather than problems, Steve and Insoo have created a powerful change of paradigm in helping clients to achieve their desired state.

The Solution-Focused concept began in 1978 in the field of therapy under the name of brief-therapy or solution-focused therapy. It has since successfully expanded into other fields including coaching, change management, education and consulting. The emphasis is on finding lasting solutions by building on competences and strengths and recognizing signs of progress.
