Narratives Aotearoa Ltd
Narratives Aotearoa is a counselling service in Te Whanganui-a-Tara (Wellington) which offers help with your issues, with a focus on Narrative Therapy. Our counselling includes services for family, couples, marriage and group therapy.
I began counselling in the early 1980s, but until 2009 these efforts were not a professional focus. In 2009, I began my Master of Counselling degree and, at the same time, began to train as a telephone (and later online) counsellor with Lifeline Christchurch. I had gone through a difficult time in my life, during which time I began to question the decisions I had made. In the middle of this traumatic experience, I remembered my love for counselling. I remembered a course in Person-Centred Therapy I took my last semester as an undergraduate. I remembered my desire to help. In the depth of my pain, I realised what I wanted to do. From that pain, I have created something beautiful – a life of service. My love for therapy has not wavered in the decade since.
Our difficulties can allow us to consider options and they can cause us to focus on what really matters. Something good can come from pain, even if it doesn’t seem possible at the time. If you are struggling and would like to talk, contact us to sign up for a counselling session.
