Metaphors are powerful tools in working with clients of all ages. The use of metaphor is now understood as a fundamental aspect of cognition, especially in how we think about our inner experience.   Using metaphor has a long tradition in CBT helping people to understand therapeutic ideas quickly and also to become more aware of the metaphors on which they are operating.

This workshop examines how therapists, counsellors and coaches can use metaphor creatively in their work particularly taking a CBT perspective. The aims are to enhance participantís skills and confidence in using metaphor in their work with both children and adults.
