Narrative Process

JourneyCircles™ Voicing is a process of telling the stories that are ready to be told.

Narrative Process using image, symbol and visual storytelling is a valuable and powerful tool for understanding root stories and unconscious beliefs, while accessing new information to support restorative healing.

Narrative Coaching offers a specific approach to guiding process and tracking awareness and experience. This client led approach offers a client space to unfold their experience, as the coach assists a client in creating a living language.

By combining elements of visual narrative, a story told primarily through art-based medium, experiential process becomes lived experience. Using narrative coaching techniques, the coach invites the client to deepen their own field of experience in order to access the power of personal myth and story as a catalyst.

Using tools of narrative process one will explore and re-story their stories, finding expanded perspective for self and other. Engaging narrative creates a specific way and mode of communication and expression. One will create and voice new meaning, exposing possibility that can clarify what has been previously perceived as shadow, shame, absolute or impossible.

There are parts of self, personal narratives and secret stories that are waiting to tell their tales. Many narratives need a safe space to begin to surface and unfurl.
