All people are no more than stories. Stories they tell themselves and others, and story of others will tell about them in the Tidal Model, we help people reclaim the stories of their Break down, their distress and their difficulties, so that, once again, they can own their experience. By talking about themselves, people become more aware of how they are =living\' and perhaps, by =doing whatever needs to be done\', they might move beyond their problems, into a new story of their own making.
