Narrative Workshop for Coaches

Workshop held on May 5th 2016

Sue ran a second successful day course attended by 6 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:

  • " Came away intellectually stimulated, physically refreshed and with greater resources to draw on in my work and life."
  • "The day held in beautiful Sipala shared with individuals that were warm, open and great fun. It was a really practical workshop introducing techniques I can use in my coaching practice immediately. A stand out day and I will recommend it to others, thank you all for sharing it."
  • "I really enjoyed the workshop, particularly Sue's passion and deep knowledge combined with the location, food and sunny weather. I will be back."
  • "Really interesting and powerful in looking at our dominant stories and recognising how these can change as we move on."
  • "I found this workshop incredibly stimulating and energising.  Sue is an excellent and intuitive coach, able to tailor the course to suit the pace and particular interests of the attendees.  I gained a very useful insight into how narrative can effectively be used both in a coaching and a business environment."
