About Jim Bird-Waddingtom

image I have spent the last 20 years working for Housing Charities in South Wales. I have held a varied portfolio including service development, finance, business growth, income generation, organisation development and PR. I am currently the Executive Director of Caer Las Cymru. Our mission and purpose is to tackle all forms of social exclusion in South Wales. I have spent the last five or six years, studying and developing Solution Focus Brief Therapy [SFBT] as a viable model of Housing Related Support. I have worked with Managers and front line staff facilitating the use of Solution Focus work in Wales. I did almost all of my SFBT training at BRIEF in London; culminating in the Diploma in Solution Focus Practice in 2009/10. I joined Caer Las, as the Executive Director in June 2010. since then we have introduced Solution Focus Practice into our front line services. I personally, still actively practice the approach, providing therapy and coaching to clients from Caer Las. I welcome front line staff to observe the sessions, providing the client is willing. I am interested in adapting the principles of SF for coaching, staff supervision, clinical supervision, team building and development, running meetings and strategic planning. It is such a logical and obvious way of looking at the world; at its most basic a useful way to have a conversation, at its most sophisticated a potentially life changing personal development tool.
