In Narrative Therapy, we create stories about ourselves that are empowering and promote healing. Despite our broken and disjointed past, the narrative approach enables a new co-authored story to set the stage for a hopeful reality. When we live out of a worthy self-concept, the story of our life takes on significance and abundance. With this in mind, Identity is a crucial piece of narrative therapy. Our identities are not the problems we face. Instead, as we embrace the struggle of our story, our identity becomes part of a much bigger picture – one that we desire and create.
When we deny our stories, they define us.
When we own our stories, we get to write the ending.
