ABOUT

I'm dyslexic. So as a student dragging myself through a textbook I read this word the rapey. "What? Oh, therapy, what a Freudian misread! What is therapy? The definition of therapy includes the word cure but most of you visitors to this website are not ill. Why have you come then? Discomfort, pain perhaps, something getting in your way. I am a Narrative therapist, dealing in stories, your stories. Not those made up escapist sorts but the real stories you want to live your life by. Yet something is getting in the way. Some therapies go after the SOMETHING but Narrative goes after your story. Everyone tells themselves about who they are and what they want to be, their plan, their plot. That idea about what goes on that helps you know what to do next, no surprises. Not everyone knows that you can change those stories. Narrative helps you change your story. Helps you to recognise the storyline you're living at the moment and if that story is a good fit with your values, hopes and dreams. If not, together we can work out another story that does fit. But what about those problems, what about that SOMETHING. As you change your story, those SOMETHINGS have less and less space. Sometimes you even take bits of them along like the perfectionist who doesn't want to be slapdash, they want to turn on perfectionism as long as they can also turn it off. Narrative is a journey where you are the expert on yourself and I am the expert at asking questions that will help us navigate to your destination.
