We’re wired for stories; they’re how we make sense of the world and our place in it.
When we’re stuck it’s because we’re lost in our story’s Second Act; something happens, we’re called to take painful action, but we keep resisting and trying and find an easier way out.
We resist because of the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves; ‘I’m strong’, ‘I’m weak’, ‘I can do this’, ‘I’m not enough’. Whether we’re conscious of them or not, these narratives colour how we feel about ourselves and the world.
Unchecked, we’re left with our emotions and actions becoming reactions to “the story I’m making up”, the meaning we give to what’s happening.
Through perceptive questioning and playful humour I can bring a new perspective on old stories and help write new ones.
