National Story Telling week starts 30th January until 6th February.

National Story Telling week is about using the oral tradition of storytelling.  Story telling is first way of communicating life experiences and using creative imagination. Taking place in storytelling clubs, theatres, museums, schools, hospitals and care homes a web of stories will be spun with sufficient magic between the breath of the teller and the ear of the listener.

Stories are more than just fairy tales.  They are things to inspire our imagination, connect with our innerchild. Which links in to a connection with counselling.

Story telling doesn’t have to be make believe!

We all have a story to tell about who we are;  joy,  pain,  adventures,  stupidity and triumphpant. Before you think I’m telling you to stand there and tell the world ‘warts and all’ the ins and out of  your life, I’m not!  Counselling is simply a way for you to tell your story.

Counselling provides the time and space for you to be able to tell your story!  In a safe judgement free enviroment.  There may be questions however it is about you! Your feelings and your problems that are having a negative impact on your life.

Story telling is healthy, in the form of off loading, sharing our problems, or with reconnecting with long lost stories from our past, when we think of the stories from our childhood, we reconnected with something, we remember things long forgotton, which happens to be part of Emotional Therapeutic Counselling process.
