Linda van Duuren
I am based at the Cape Town Narrative Co-op in Mowbray, Cape Town, where I consult as a Narrative Practitioner with children, families, schools, non-profit and small business organizations in the areas of personal and organizational development and transformation.
Apart from individual counseling with children and adults, I am living out my dream of bringing Narrative ideas and practices into the everyday lives of teachers, parents, and others living and/or working with children… through Narrative coaching, teaching and training. I also consult to some small business leaders, offering a Narrative perspective to organizational health, conversation and change.
I run a small private practice from the Co-op’s rooms in Mowbray, Cape Town.
I have a special interest in conversations with people who are finding themselves at a crossroads or who are experiencing some form of loss or transition in their lives.
Over the years I have also enjoyed coming alongside children and young people in co-authoring preferred stories for their lives.
Because of my interest in working in Narrative ways in community settings, I enjoy witnessing and supporting people who work in NPO and/or cross-cultural contexts.
