Certainly! Solution-based therapy (also known as solution-focused brief therapy) emphasizes focusing on the present and future and prioritizes solutions rather than problems. Here are 20 questions inspired by this approach:

  1. What are your goals, and what would achieving them look like for you?
  2. Can you recall a time when you faced a similar problem and how you overcame it?
  3. What strengths and resources can you draw upon to solve this challenge?
  4. What’s working well for you right now, even if it’s a small success?
  5. If the problem was miraculously solved overnight, how would you realize it?
  6. On a scale of 1 to 10, where are you now in relation to your goal, and what would it take to move one step closer?
  7. Who in your life can support you in reaching your goal?
  8. What will be the first sign that things are moving in the right direction?
  9. How will you know that you no longer need therapy or support for this issue?
  10. What small change could you make today that might lead to an improvement?
  11. How have you managed to prevent the situation from getting worse?
  12. What part of this situation is within your control to change?
  13. Can you describe a time in your life when you were happier or more fulfilled? What was different then?
  14. How can you apply what you’ve learned from past successes to your current situation?
  15. What are some exceptions to the problem, times when it’s not as bad or not present at all?
  16. How would a significant person in your life describe your progress so far?
  17. What would be a realistic and satisfying next step for you?
  18. What might be some of the positive and negative consequences of reaching your goal?
  19. How can you build on the progress you’ve made so far?
  20. What will be your first step in moving towards the solution, and how can you commit to taking that step?

These questions aim to empower the individual, focusing on their abilities, resources, and hopes, rather than dwelling on problems or deficits.
