Welcome to Healing Fox!
My name is Xenia, I am a mental health professional and a journalist.
Working as a journalist, I met different people, listened to their stories, and published them. I loved that feeling of diving into other’s lives and make their stories a part of History. Pretty many of that people seemed like they have nobody to talk with, and I saw they needed help but I could give them just a couple of hours of my time. This made me thinking about a career in psychology.
While studying, I have realized that creativity is a tremendous healing power and that storytelling literally can put you together piece by piece. Storytelling is not so easy as it might seem! Sometimes you experience a lack of words, sometimes you do not have a listener, and often you have no time... Brilliant, talented, sincere people remain unheard, even unheard by themselves. That’s not fair!
This website is a place for our stories, and I am here to help you to express yourself and to provide you at least one interested listener! I have created an approach which I called Integrated Narrative Approach (INA). It combines Adlerian philosophy, narrative methods, theory of communication, and feminist lens. I will publish more information on this very soon.
Also, I am a Russian-speaking ICDP facilitator affiliated with Changing Children’s Worlds Foundation. I facilitate LGBT+ friendly and gender-neutral Russian-speaking online groups. If you know someone Russian-speaking who might be interested - please, spread the word!
And of course, the Stories page is coming soon, and you are more than welcome to contribute!
