Narrative therapy is a specialty in the field of psychology that focuses on the stories that people tell about themselves and their lives. The premise of narrative therapy is that people's perceptions of themselves and their experiences are shaped by the stories they tell, and that these stories can be changed to create new, more positive outcomes.

In narrative therapy, clients are encouraged to tell their stories in detail, and therapists help them to identify the themes and patterns that emerge. Clients are then encouraged to challenge and rewrite these stories in a way that allows them to see themselves and their experiences in a more positive light. This process of rewriting one's story is known as re-authoring.

Narrative therapy is based on the idea that people are not defined by their problems or their diagnosis. Instead, people are seen as having unique identities and experiences that are shaped by the stories they tell about themselves. By helping clients to identify and challenge negative or limiting stories, narrative therapists aim to help clients develop new, more positive narratives that empower them to create a more fulfilling life.

Narrative therapy is often used to treat a wide range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, trauma, and addiction. It can be used in individual or group therapy, and can be applied to a wide range of age groups and populations.

One of the key features of narrative therapy is its focus on the client's strengths and resources. Rather than focusing on the client's deficits or problems, narrative therapy seeks to build on the client's existing strengths and resources to create positive change.

Narrative therapy is often used in conjunction with other therapeutic approaches, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based therapy. It is considered a client-centered approach, with the therapist serving as a collaborator and guide rather than an authority figure.

Overall, narrative therapy is a unique and empowering approach to therapy that encourages clients to re-author their stories and create more positive, fulfilling narratives for themselves.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
