"Thank you for helping me reclaim my narrative, Kristin.
As a woman and an abuse survivor, I found this profoundly empowering.
Months after completing your program, I am still experiencing the personal and professional aftershocks of the insights I made.
Through your unique story-telling approach, I gained insights that I failed to make during years of therapy.
You model compassionate self-examination, and this helped me look at my past mistakes as opportunities for growth, rather than as reasons to beat myself up."
WHY AM I SO PASSIONATE ABOUT STEER YOUR STORY?
I recently completed a 30 credit Certificate in Narrative Therapy Training at Vancouver School for Narrative Therapy. Steer Your Story is based on 30+ years of research and theory and it works. The tools and techniques shared saved my own life.
As we move through the pandemic and current events, we are navigating unprecedented times filled with unknowns and yet I also believe it is a time to come together. I am determined to do what I can to make a difference in being of service to others being able to maintain their sense of balance in their inner narrative and not allow fear to take over to the point of inaction.
For me this is also personal, as a survivor of multiple childhood traumas I spent years telling myself a story that simply wasn’t true. A story of anxiety and urgency and “not good enough.” This story kept me in a cycle of overachieving, co-dependent relationships, mindless busyness, and anorexia. It also at times kept me from taking action.
Perhaps you have told yourself a not true story, too. Maybe, like me, you spent years living in fear, or urgency, or seeking validation from others in hopes you would feel good enough.
Thanks to using the tools and techniques offered in this program I feel more empowered than ever.
I’ve been able to shed the stories of fear and urgency and create a life that is fulfilling and of service to others.
I am living my purpose and passion every day. And I am able to maintain balance even in times of deep uncertainty.
