Graeme Warburton

I am a very experienced practitioner and teacher of Narrative Therapy which is my preferred approach. This approach uses ideas that are helpful in assisting people find new possibilities for their lives based on everything they know and have experienced. It strongly believes that people are not the problem but that the problem is the problem. Thinking that you are the expert in your own life I see my job as asking great questions and helping you out sort your own direction.
