Calgary Psychologist Clinic - Narrative Therapy

Our Calgary Psychologist Clinic has therapists that use the Narrative Therapy Framework to help clients rewrite their history. Book your free consult today. Narrative therapy is a form of therapy that focuses on the stories and narratives that individuals construct about their lives. By exploring and understanding these narratives, individuals can gain a greater sense of agency and control over their own lives. The approach is rooted in the belief that our identities and perceptions of reality are shaped by the stories we tell ourselves and others.

In narrative therapy, the therapist acts as a collaborator and facilitator, working with the individual to examine the dominant narratives that may be causing distress or limiting their potential. The therapist helps the person to externalize the problem by separating it from their identity, enabling them to view it as a separate entity that can be explored and challenged.

One key aspect of narrative therapy is the emphasis on social and cultural contexts. The therapy recognizes that individual stories are influenced by broader societal narratives and values. By examining these influences, individuals can begin to challenge and redefine the dominant narratives that may be constraining their lives.

Through various techniques, such as externalizing conversations, reauthoring, and therapeutic letter writing, narrative therapy aims to empower individuals to rewrite their stories in ways that promote growth, resilience, and positive change. The focus is not on finding a single “truth” or solution, but rather on co-constructing new narratives that align with the person’s values, goals, and preferred ways of being.

Narrative therapy is applicable to a wide range of issues, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, trauma, and relationship problems. It can be used with individuals, couples, families, or groups, and it recognizes the importance of involving the person’s support network in the therapeutic process.

Overall, narrative therapy offers a collaborative and empowering approach that helps individuals recognize and challenge the dominant narratives that shape their lives. By exploring alternative stories and possibilities, individuals can gain new perspectives, develop strengths, and create meaningful change in their lives.
