Developing Meaningful Narratives


Coronavirus Outbreak

In the current coronavirus outbreak, practising self-isolation can be stressful. Dominant narratives of fear, worry, anxiety, etc are having a negative effect on people’s lives.

Defining Stories is committed to walking alongside individuals and communities in discovering ideas of telling our stories in ways that make us stronger. 

Narrative therapy sessions are now available online (Skype, Zoom, Messenger, phone, text). I am taking 30 minute bookings - there is no expectation of payment (if you would like to make a donation, please see Fees page).


I wish to acknowledge the Wurundjeri-willam people of the Kulin nation who are the Traditional Owners of the Land on which I live. I want to pay my respect to the Elders of the Kulin Nation, both past, present and emerging, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal Australians and Torres Strait Islanders. I acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.

Welcome to Defining Stories. We are committed to developing meaningful narratives for people's lives through collaboration and conversations. 

Have You come to this page because the stories you believed and told about yourself are having a negative effect on your life?

Are You ready to reclaim your story-telling rights? Often the stories we tell about ourselves have been written by others.

You have the right to define your experiences on your own terms and in your own words.

You are the expert of your story and you can learn to tell your story in a way that makes you Stronger.

Narrative Therapy is an invitation to tell and retell your stories in ways that offer hope and healing.

"As we become aware of ourselves as storytellers we realise we can use our stories to heal and make ourselves whole."
