Metaphor in counselling and psychotherapy
Dr Jonathan Lloyd
01 Dec 2017

Picture of JonathanOn Friday 1st December 2017, we will repeat our popular workshop on metaphor in counselling and psychotherapy.  Metaphor in counselling and psychotherapy has a unique power. According to Rubin Battino (2002) metaphors provides a cluster or gestalt of associations; reduce resistance; facilitate thinking; are more compelling than structured language; and aid assimilation. They provide an essential link between conscious and subconscious and can be extremely powerful tools in working safely with difficult issues like trauma, shame and anger.  This one day workshop will investigate the use of metaphor and help delegates to use it more consciously and effectively in their practice. The venue is the Friends Meeting House in Stockport.  For further information click here.
