Narrative Therapy

(Ages 8 Upwards)


Usually about 4-6 sessions depending on the individual. (Funding is normally available for 12 -24 year olds).

  • The aim here is to work collaboratively with your young person in an age appropriate way and empower them to reconnect with their uniquely capable, resourceful self.

  • To establish and narrate the “I can,” the “I am good enough,” as they explore their beliefs, values and strengths and to facilitate them to reconnect with their drive and interest in life.

  • To work together in playfully gaining an understanding of the different facets of the problem(s) they might be experiencing, including the problem's effects, tactics and triggers, the beliefs and ideas that support it. 

  • To empower your young person to find solutions from their richly narrated resourceful self to help influence these problems, to discover different perspectives, to claim their life back from the negative influences of these problems and live life more fully.


(Ages 12-20)


Usually about 4-6 sessions depending on individual.  (Funding is usually available for 12-24 year olds).

  • The aim of this work is to provide a space for your teenager to explore, express, grapple with and work through their own beliefs and values and ideas, to explore their strengths, hopes and dreams and to make decisions informed by these.

  • To embrace the beauty of their emerging individuality and develop a positive view of themselves. 

  • To normalise the vulnerabilities and conflicts experienced in these teenage years.

  • To work through difficulties and problems that might be impacting this emerging self and which can try to convince them that they are "not good enough," "not capable," "that life isn't worth living" or that there is no hope.

  • To help them to reunite with the "I can," "I am capable," "I am good enough" and help them to reconnect with their drive and interest in life.
