This is a group for anyone interested in networking with other solution-focused practitioners. We're a mix of therapists, coaches, organisation consultants, trainers, counsellors and others who appreciate the SF approach in work and life. Our meetings sometimes have a topic chosen in advance, and sometimes the themes emerge from discussions during the session. A typical meeting might be: 6.00: drink buying/gossip 6.30: introductions with each participant describing something going well this month/week/day/hour! 7.00: Topic of session - facillitated discussion on topic or reflecting team on someone's issue or case 8.00 end/more drinks... We are the London branch of both UKASFP - http://www.ukasfp.co.uk/ and of SOLworld - http://www.solworld.org/ Whatever your level of SF experience, you'll be welcome to join our activities and discussions.
