Narrative conversations give you the opportunity to lay it all out on the table in a safe space of trial and error and positivity. My style will push you outside your comfort zone just enough for you to take the risks necessary, but not so much that i’ll have you [falsely] believing that all will be perfect by next Tuesday. 

I have worked with people from a variety of circumstances, for instance those who were brought up to take care of their wellbeing in a way that doesn’t serve them well now or those who are questioning the values they’ve held for a long time or the stories that have been told them, about themselves. One of the foundations of Narrative Therapy is that what one person or group of people or even society considers to be true about you is not necessarily the truth about you. So our conversations always start from a position of trust with no preconceived notions.

Online Narrative sessions refer to to anything live, like in person, through Skype or Viber on video, Facebook or Viber on messenger or over the telephone. Catchups can start as early as 6am and finish as late as 10pm Australian Eastern Standard Time. Face to face catchups are available in the Robertson Office on weekends, or by river or a cafe during the week for Pyrmont and surrounding suburbs of Sydney CBD.
