Stories


We dreamt up Stories as a safe way to gather personal narratives.

The idea being that, particularly in more emotional and potentially psychologically fraught contexts, you don't want to encourage disparagement or destructive debate of one person's perspective. You simply want to honour the individual's experience.

Stories are at the heart of our experience.


The stories we tell ourselves and the stories we share determine who we are and contextualise how we respond to the world around us.

Sharing stories affects both the story teller and the listener (or reader) profoundly at both an emotional and cognitive level.

We usually ask people to put their emotions aside. This is to the detriment of the both the speaker and the listener - the "listener" in this case being both the "consulting agency" and the broader community who are reading the stories online.

Emotional resonance that creates some form of empathy or understanding is a critical element in creating an "engaged" community, rather than simply a "consulted" community.
