Written Narratives as Therapy

This page originally included a range of books on writing therapy,which have now been rationalised and repackaged.  Our main book on Writing Therapy (and Expressive Writing) is now this: 

How to write a new life for yourself: Narrative therapy and the writing solution.***


The previous book – on Narrative therapy and the Writing Solution – has now been radically revised and greatly expanded, and produced in the form of a paperback book, via Amazon.  Here is a brief description:

How to Write a New Life for Yourself

by Dr Jim Byrne (with Renata Taylor-Byrne)

I have used writing therapy for years; to manage my stress and time; to manage my relationships at home and at work; to resolve my emotional and practical problems; to improve my creativity; and just simply to chew through my daily experiences to make sense of them, and to file them away in a manner which would stop them building up into mental logjams.  (Of course I have also used meditation, diet and exercise, adequate sleep, calm relationships, and so on!)
