Narrative Therapy is a psychological therapy whose purpose is to heal by telling personal life stories.
The therapist follows guided conversations that help the client see their own life from different points of view.
It was developed in the 1980’s by Australian social worker Michael White and family therapist David Epson from New Zealand.
Some psychologists practice it, but also social workers, writers, and people from related occupations.
Narrative Therapy is frequently complementary to other kinds of traditional psychological therapy.
It’s part of the expressive therapies -like art therapy- since its focus is on making the client express themselves.
In my case, since I’m a non-fiction author who has used writing about her own life living in several countries as therapy for more than 18 years, who also has a diploma in Creative Writing, and two diplomas in Therapeutic Writing, I often focus my practice in making the client express themselves through guided writing.
I got my Diploma on Narrative Practices from the Narrative Therapy Group Coyoacan in Mexico City (Grupo Terapia Narrativa Coyoacán) in July 2021, and have been attending clients through on-line sessions ever since.
The first one-hour session is always free, the following ones are $400 (mexican pesos) or US$ 25.
