‘Narrative’ and ‘storytelling’ continue to trend in coaching, counselling, interviewing and advising, but how does it work? How can we listen in new ways to our clients’ stories to distill what matters from what happened, to answer ‘what now?’ How can we integrate a narrative framework with assessments, coaching and advising?

Exciting results show significant increases in validated scales of hope, optimism, resilience, confidence, and curiosity & exploration, after clients experienced our narrative method of practice. These results correlate with higher career clarity, job satisfaction and job alignment.
