Particular interests and hopes for connection: I work with narrative ideas in my private practice in Bendigo. I also lecture in narrative therapy and other subjects in Melbourne. I completed a PhD thesis on the relational self and its application to narrative therapy and spirituality. I am available for counselling, supervision, course writing and lecturing. I enjoy meeting monthly with other local narrative practitioners. Early in 2015 I enjoyed an advanced intensive in narrative therapy with Jill Freedman and Gene Combs in Tuscany, and I get to the International Narrative Therapy conference as often as possible. On my rural property I breed alpacas and border collie dogs, plant native trees and flowers, and enjoy the birdlife.

Particular interests and hopes for connection: We live connected to our environment, our community and to the people we love, and at each intersection our personal narrative connects with those around us. I work with individuals and couples in a framework informed by permaculture practises – where ideas of sustainability extend to having a sustainably positive life by engaging in our own stories and the points of intersection where our own world meets the worlds of other people.

Particular interests and hopes for connection: I have an interest in narrative therapy to assist clients experiencing loss and grief (death and non-death events) and working toward functional recovery. I help clients who feel that they have become disorganised and stuck to regain a sense of control in their lives and home or work environment. I have an undergraduate in psychology and post graduate qualifications in counselling with specialisation in bereavement counselling. In addition, I have a post graduate qualification in experiential learning and development in the bush adventure therapy stream. I bring this together in walk and talk therapy and in-home counselling working with clients experiencing loss, grief and chronic disorganisation. I also offer on-line counselling options.

Particular interests and hopes for connection: I am a new graduate of the Bachelor of Counselling. I studied at the Australian College of Applied Psychology.
I am currently working with an agency and have also started my own private practice in Regional Victoria, Australia.
I have gravitated toward narrative ideas on a deep philosophical and political level that I cannot help but use this as my core approach in my work.
As a younger therapist, I'd love to connect with other therapists whom I can learn from and develop my practice.

Particular interests and hopes for connection: I am particularly interested in Narrative (from both perspectives of clinical and personality psychology) and Developmental Theories. I am a registered and practicing clinical psychologist with 10 years of experience. I am also currently completing my PhD, and the study I have chosen is examining the association between narrative and psychological health. Specifically, looking at narrative themes and underlying cognitive processes.
