Area of work

Physical Health Care (Chronic pain, long term health conditions, health
anxiety)

Additional information

I am also interested in collective narrative practice,  the use of diverse cultural means to achieve therapeutic ends, moving therapy out of the traditional mode!

With the Narrative Network, I would really like to hear about others struggles and successes to keep their interest and engagement in narrative alive when working in traditional clinical settings. I would also be keen to collaborate with others in an attempt to raise the profile of narrative practices generally, perhaps by convening local workshops or conferences.

Area of work

I am an Educational Psychologist working in Manchester for One Education.   I work in various educational provisions with children and young people who have a range of needs. 

Additional information

I am particularly interested in supporting those who are at risk of exclusion and wrote my thesis on the factors that support young people to successfully return to mainstream provision.  I am also interested in developing effective consultation with adults who work around the child.

I have completed the Level 1 training and I am really interested in developing my practice to work more effectively in schools, particularly in consultation with adults.   I am particularly keen to meet like minded colleagues who feel that it is possible to use narrative therapy principles and practices within our work both directly with children and also with adults who work around the child.

Area of work

I have worked as a clinical psychologist with children, young people and familes for over 11 years. During that time, predominantly through my relationship with the former centre for narrative practice, and in particular in conversations with my friend and mentor Hugh Fox, and encouragement from Sarah Walther, I have found narrative ideas increasingly helpful and useful for the work I do.

More recently I have had many conversations around developing ideas for applying narrative therapy approaches to acute and chronic health conditions. I have also been fortunate to deliver a small number of narrative workshops of an introductory nature.


Additional information

I am currently completing the dipoma in narrative therapy with the institute. My hopes are to furhter consolidate and broaden my experience and skills in narrative therapy through my therapeutic work with people, and delivering training, teaching and writing more! I would like to continue to contribute to the development and sharing of this exciting, relevant (to people's lives, hopes and values) and ethical approach.

I can offer individual narrative supervision, and am currently exploring opportunities to provide peer supervision.

Area of work

 I work as a psychotherapist in private practice
mainly with adults on a one to one basis. My training was initially in body-centred work and after embracing brief and solution-focussed approaches now combine this with various narrative practices.  I am particularly
interested in the place and the role of the body in therapeutic conversations.

Additional information

I hope to connect and share with other people
in the network who have an interest or concern around the inclusion of
body-centred knowledges in narrative practices.

I am enthusiastic about existential approaches and philosophy, and about the potential of creative ways of working, which I believe offer many ways to tell our stories with the assistance of metaphor.

Additional information

I would like to join or establish a South West interest group for narrative practitioners, particularly the Devon/Cornwall area. I suggest we could use it for support, discussion, sharing, peer supervision, practice of skills, wine/coffee/cake, and whatever else people would like!

I am the current editor of  BACP Thresholds which is the quarterly divisional journal of the APSCC and would like to see more articles in mainstream counselling/psychotherapy journals which have a narrative slant.

Area of work

I work within physical health as a clinical psychologist.

Additional information

I have found that each time I engage with narrative ideas and people who are endeavouring to put these ideas into practice, I always come away feeling inspired and more hopeful about the work I do and the possibilities for it. I am especially interested in how these ideas can be used within services similar to the one in which I work (acute medical in-patients wards) as well as more generally in how they can support people whose lives have been affected by physical health conditions. Up until now, I have worked with people living with multiple sclerosis, HIV which included working with people seeking asylum, those who have experienced a stroke as well as a number of other conditions that have the capacity to impact upon a persons health and what it is that they are now able or not able to do. I am currently in the process of completing the diploma in narrative therapy which I have really enjoyed. I would be interested in linking with others to think more about these ideas and their application within a physical health context.

Area of work

I have worked using Narrative Therapy in New Zealand for the past 5 years after taking a diploma and degree with the primary focus on Narrative Therapy. My work has been predominantly with children, adolescents and young adults who I find readily adhere to this way of working. I returned to England in July 2014 after being away for 12 years and hope to resume work very soon.

I love the empowering nature of Narrative Therapy, through which the other is enabled to richly author their own life, according to the values, beliefs and capacities they hold, rather than by the constraining conclusions made by others or the problem.


Additional information

I would love to connect with other people interested in Narrative Therapy and continue to be inspired through conversations. I have always found the reading of verbatim from Narrative counselling sessions and the creative ideas people bring to these conversations, invaluable to my own learning. I know I would gain equally from having conversations with others as they bring a unique creativity in the language they use.
