Karen Conran
Professional Development Manager, Cheshire and Warrington

"We have commissioned several Solution-Focused courses over the past four years and they have all had the same excellent reviews which demonstrates the high standard of delivery and explains why we have made repeat bookings. Staff have found the training to be the best they have ever been on!"

Geoff Perkins
Training Officer,


"A must for all our interviewing staff, hence our long term relationship with your company." Focus on Solutions has delivered over 20 courses to this company.


Paul Sheppard
Development Manager,
Careers Solutions


"The Focus on Solutions courses are always amongst our most popular with our own staff and those of partner agencies. Well structured, varied, stimulating and pitched at the right level feedback is universally positive. The courses combine theory with practice in a thought provoking yet non-threatening style enabling many participants to work in ways they had not tried or even considered previously."


Alison Horne
Training Manager, Gloucestershire


"The Solution Focused Skills training delivered by Bill and his team has been fantastic! All our staff who have been on this training have thoroughly enjoyed the course and, more importantly, have used the strategy to great effect in their work with clients.


Tracy Murphy
Training Manager, Suffolk


"The Solution-Focused counselling course that is delivered by Bill O'Connell is one of the most successful courses that we have run for our staff. A large number of our staff comment that it is one of the best courses that they have ever attended. We always get very positive feedback for this course. We find that it is a particularly useful tool for Personal Advisers and Youth Workers working with young people who have multiple issues to resolve."


Elaine Newell
Training Manager, Tameside


"It's always a pleasure to have Bill and his team deliver training for us. I can be confident that the majority of participants come away re-invigorated and re-motivated to work with young people. We are always oversubscribed with nominations for the training as staff hear their colleagues talking about it with enthusiasm."


Pat Hawkins
Training Officer,
Hereford and Worcester


"We introduced Solution Focused Skills to a group of our staff in 2002 and the training has been in demand ever since. Feedback is glowing - "The best training I have ever been on" is a typical comment.

The training is delivered in both a professional and entertaining style. Staff feel able to apply the new approach immediately to clients which focuses on the solution, not the problem. The reflective team approach is seen to produce real results. I have no hesitation in recommending Focus on Solutions to anyone looking for an accessible, refreshing approach to work with clients, supporting colleagues or dealing with personal issues."


Sarah Charlesworth
Training and Quality Manager Yorkshire


"An alternative approach, to add to the IAG advisers skills set. It is particularly useful for supporting adults find and commit to ways of overcoming the barriers they face when engaging in learning or work. Moreover, it's so transferable, and can give you a fresh perspective on how to manage change in your own life."
