about your storyline

Your Storyline is a niche psychotherapy service in the east of Adelaide, South Australia. It specializes in life transition issues for older adults and women who become mothers. Under the former name of MBH Mobile Counselling Service, it began operation in 2012. It offers quality in-home or on-site counselling, consultancy and training. For more information about each service type please visit the services page.

Everyone has a story to tell. Our life story - our storyline - is like a thread that weaves its way through all the good times and the bad. All the twists and turns that make up each human experience. Every storyline is unique like a thumb print or the structure of one's DNA. Your storyline is what makes you the person you are. It is the journey that you are on.

There are four groups of people that Your Storyline is particularly committed to: seniors aged 65+ (especially advanced seniors), those with a disability or life limiting illness, carers and new mothers. The reason for this focus stems from decades of experience that Felicity Chapman, the principal counsellor, has had in working with these populations. In this time she has developed a strong interest in the unique needs of these groups and the often overlooked threads of grief present as major change (hoped for or not) can start painting a very different life picture.
