Change is confronting, no matter how experienced you are. A Retiree about to spend her savings on a dream florist shop is just as nervous as a teenager busking for the first time in the main street. Taking risks is uncomfortable because you’re taking a chance that you’re ready for something new when in reality, you can’t be 100% sure. Risk also applies to the things you want to give up or let go. For some, it’s more comfortable just to stick with the demons rather than wake them up to send them on their way. 

Narrative conversations give you the opportunity to lay it all out on the table in a safe space of trial and error, objective criticism, 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. 

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.
