The Tree of Life

psycho socSometimes the difficulties and traumas our clients have had to go through can leave them feeling disconnected to their past. They lose their sense of identity and of the person they were in their old life at home.  Finding their way in a new country can be disorientating and unsettling. The Tree of Life is a narrative therapy model which allows a space for clients to reconnect in a supportive and enjoyable activity.

Each week for eight weeks clients come together to tell stories and share experiences while drawing their own ‘Tree’ to represent all the people and things that have influenced and shaped their lives, both as they were and as they are now.  In this way clients can choose to  ‘re-author’ their particular stories, reclaiming their power and their sense of being in control of their lives.
