Narrative Therapy : Future Focus Counselling & Consulting

How it Works

  • Your Story Matters: In Narrative Therapy, you'll share your life story with the therapist. The focus isn’t just on the problems you're facing, but on the whole narrative – the ups, downs, twists, and turns.
  • Separating You from the Problem: A key part of this therapy is learning to see your problems as separate from you. For example, instead of thinking, “I am anxious,” the narrative might change to, “I am dealing with anxiety.” This helps you tackle issues without feeling overwhelmed by them.
  • Rewriting the Story: You and the therapist work together to 'rewrite' parts of your story. This doesn’t mean changing facts, but rather changing how you view and interpret events in your life, finding new meanings and possibilities.
  • Highlighting Your Strengths: Narrative Therapy focuses on your strengths and achievements. It's about recognizing the times you've overcome difficulties and using these successes to build a more empowering story.

What It's Good For

This therapy can be incredibly helpful if you feel stuck or if you’re struggling with how you see yourself or your life. It's great for gaining a fresh perspective on your experiences and for dealing with specific challenges like relationship issues, stress, or low self-esteem. Narrative Therapy can also be empowering if you've gone through significant life changes or traumatic events.

In essence, Narrative Therapy helps you to see your life's story through a new lens. It encourages you to take charge of your narrative, recognizing your resilience and capacity for change. It's about understanding that while you can’t always control what happens in life, you can control how you interpret and respond to your life’s story.
