Narrative Workshop for Coaches

Workshop held on March 3rd 2016

Sue ran a very successful day course attended by 10 delegates who experienced the power of narrative work both with their own autobiographical stories and the use of metaphor and storytelling with clients.

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. The delegates worked on their own personal stories and developed practical tools to use with clients such as: the extended use of their metaphors, re-authoring conversations, and narrative approaches to time. 

The day was structured to deepen the 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.

Here are some of the comments from attendees:

  • "This has renewed my confidence in inviting the client's story of their history"
  • "Well-paced day. Lots of fabulous experiential learning"
  • "Imaginative, thought provoking, enabling"
  • "A warm and welcoming safe space for people to explore as far as they were willing. A gentle and restorative day."
