Carolyn Markey

Family Therapist, SA

Carolyn is based in Adelaide, where her current work combines practicing as a Child and Family Counsellor at Relationships Australia and teaching Narrative Therapy as a senior faculty member in the Narrative Therapy and Community work Masters Program at the Dulwich Centre.


Her working life has been a synergy of teaching and therapeutic practice with children, addressing the injustices they bring to conversations. After training with Michael White and David Epston in Narrative Therapy in the 90s, Carolyn worked in a range of Non-Government Organisations (NGO) and schools with children affected by issues no doubt familiar to you, including gendered violence, the effects of colonisation, family separation, addiction and discrimination of all forms.


Carolyn has a commitment to making ‘therapy’ with children and their care givers an intriguing conversational space, that is non-pathologising, hopefully fun and culturally accountable and where children and their caregivers gain the knowledge needed to shrink their problems!
