Narrative Coaching

Narrative Coaching

Narrative therapy posits that our identities are shaped by the accounts of our lives found in the stories or narratives we tell. The bridges of meaning we build with others through conversation helps us develop new perspectives and shape events into new, more hopeful narratives; listening to and telling stories about ourselves and our lives shape new realities.  The narrative perspective raises the client’s awareness of  the stories that shape their perception of reality and helps them achieve a more nuanced understanding of their situation. This provides a stronger foundation for action and decision-making but it may also be an end in itself.
