Narrative Therapy and counselling

Narrative therapy is a very well-known therapy or counselling approach practised all over the world. It was co-founded in Australia and New Zealand by Michael White and David Epston in the 1980’s and 1990’s. One of the main differences of Narrative therapy when compared with other approaches is that it does not focus on the person as being the problem. It is an often quoted statement by Narrative practitioners that,

‘The person is never the problem; the problem is the problem.’

Narrative conversations can be creative and engaging, and they have the intention to support you to reconnect with your own wisdom and beliefs about life and remember the other possible stories that you have to express who you are, what is important to you, and where you are going. In focusing on a persons many skills, abilities and competencies it can be possible to assist them to significantly reduce the influence of problems in their lives.
