Coaching as Story Mending

IMAG1047

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”

― Maya Angelou

Storymending Coaching presents and opportunity to become  more present in your own truth, more conscious, and more confident to follow your own path.

In these sessions, I listen to and connect with the story of you. In the sanctuary of a therapy room or studio, sometimes it is enough just to speak and to be heard.

Sometimes there’s reason or inspiration to use sensory materials to hand: to explore through creative expression, and without judgement. Sometimes you might choose to write as well as to speak your story; or to create images with collage, or items from the natural world. Creativity offers different ways or perceiving and understanding situations and events.

Or, between the rhythm of our steps, whilst walking together in the natural environment, I listen to what you bring, uniquely, to the world; and to the challenges that you face.

Whether meeting in a local park or in a place more off-the-beaten-track, nature is diverse and abundant. The natural world is an ally, translating challenges through metaphors inherent in its detail and expanse.

Sometimes, the truth that comes to light, is a breakthrough in understanding,  a new vision of life. Sometimes it is the realisation that old patterns re-emerge in many guises. Negotiating ways past familiar obstacles can be painful. Sometimes insight or transformation requires a deeper immersion into the story of oneself.

Whatever takes place, I listen and respect connection with you, sometimes questioning for clarity and insight. I reflect on your story and offer guidance toward your own realisations.

Answers to searching questions and solutions to dilemmas, are always within you: working this way enables them to rise, to come to your attention, and to play their necessary part in the ongoing,  adventurous, journey of life.
