Narrative Therapy

Narrative Therapy puts emphasis on helping people embrace being the expert on their own lives. There is an emphasis on the stories people develop and carry with them throughout their life. These stories influence how people see themselves and the world. 

Narrative therapists work to help clients put together their narrative in a way that allows clients to find their voice and explore events in their lives and the meanings they’ve built around those experiences. The client and therapist look at the story to identify the dominant stories and deconstruct problematic stories.
