One of the central premises of narrative practice is that the way in which we narrate our experiences has a big impact on how we feel and think, on how we see ourselves and our relationships, and how we relate to other people. We look at the neuroscience and emotional registers that support this in current theory. The workshop is structured to deepen our understanding of how to move clients from the static perception of personal narrative to one that is dynamic and relational allowing them to tell their story in a new way. It is an interactive and practical day in which we will learn more about ourselves as well as taking away practical tools to use with clients such as: the extended use of their metaphors, re-authoring conversations, and narrative approaches to time. Here are some of the comments from delegates on the previous course, run in 2016:

  • “This has renewed my confidence in inviting the client's story of their history”

  • "Well-paced day. Lots of fabulous experiential learning”

  • "A warm and welcoming safe space for people to explore as far as they wanted"

  • "Imaginative, thought provoking, enabling”they were willing. A gentle and restorative day."
