Tyson Carmody is a trusted narrative therapist, community leader, proud Arrernte man, father, and the founder and managing director of Kings Narrative. His vision at Kings Narrative is to support Aboriginal men to be the authors of their own story and build a proud future for his sons to inherit.
Anyone who has worked with Tyson knows the patience, generosity, and knowledge he brings to everything he does. Tyson has that rare ability to walk in many worlds at once, bringing together people from all backgrounds and levels of experience, with respect and care to navigate complex realities with strength and humility.
Tyson is the walking blood memory of his ancestors and carries with him a dignity and ability to communicate that is very rare. Because of this ability Aboriginal men of all ages seek his counsel, mentoring, and support. Tyson creates culturally safe environments where men can connect, unpack trauma, and build self-belief.
Tyson’s work at Kings Narrative is firmly grounded in systems change, strong communities and nurturing black excellence every day. He is highly sought after as a speaker, facilitator, and mediator. Most recently he was a finalist for 2023 Northern Territory Australian of the Year.
