Life transition planning and mentoring, peer support and individual skill development through using the narrative
Write your Story with a Mentor
with Dr June Alexander
NDIS Registered Provider
(Self-managed; plan managed; or agency managed)
Working with a writing mentor can help you to separate yourself from the issues you’re facing and put you in the driver’s seat of your life. Through writing and sharing in a supportive and safe space, you can learn self-help skills, improve your confidence and your self-esteem.
Importantly, with a writing mentor as your guide, you can start to feel that your life really does count. Additionally, your story can help others to understand you and the challenges you have faced or are facing, and accept and respect you more.
June will work with you to:
- develop confidence in narrative expression
- build on communication skills
- improve ability to self-care
- expand independence; and
- increase social engagement in the community
No prior writing experience is necessary. A desire to tell your story is all that matters. If you have experienced trauma or mental health challenges you will receive guidance in writing to help yourself heal, improve your life quality and be free to move on and live a fuller, happier, and more purposeful life.
When: As soon as you are ready to start
