Solution Focused Trainers< back to trainers
Kidge started working with solution focused practice and people with chronic physical ill-health in 1997 and in 2005 she wrote a book, called 'Focus on Solutions; a health professional's guide' (2nd edition 2016, Solutions Books), describing how it can be used with individuals, families and groups within a hospital and community setting. She set up a supervision process ('Ten Minute Talk'), which helped embed SF principles within her department and has delivered training throughout the UK and abroad, also contributing SF material to other books in 2009 and 2012.
Kidge left the NHS in June 2016 and continues to provide supervision and training in SF practice, as well as seeing some private clients. She is currently a SF supervisor for a study at City University on SFBT in Aphasia.
Kidge feels privileged to have been involved in the accreditation process of the UKASFP since 2013. Her enthusiasm for the solution focused practice remains as strong as the first day she heard about it, having seen how well it works for both colleagues and clients alike.
