On the power of stories

For me, one of the great advantages of being a therapist is being in the presence of people’s stories, having the privilege of being let into their lives and being a witness to them.

My job is not only to hear what is said but sometimes also help my clients tell their story, to express what is hidden or difficult to put into words, to notice what is not being said, to help put together what may seem disjointed, to make sense of it all.
