New Online Training for Aspiring Counsellors in Narrative Counselling

Narrative therapy is a style of therapy that helps people become—and embrace being—an expert in their own lives. In narrative therapy, there is an emphasis on the stories we develop and carry with us through our lives. As we experience events and interactions, we give meaning to those experiences and they, in turn, influence how we see ourselves and our world. We can carry multiple stories at once, such as those related to our self-worth, our abilities, our relationships, and our work.  This approach of therapy was developed by Michael White and David Epston,  who believed it was important to see people as separate from their problems.
