CPD Event title: Therapeutic Metaphors – A practical workshop
Brief Description Of Event: Making up metaphors on the hoof can be daunting, but using personalised stories in your hypnosis sessions can be a very effective way to work with all types of clients for many types of issues. Conversational metaphors can help your client absorb suggestions as the stories will bypass the conscious critical mind. In this workshop, you learn ways to elicit useful material from your client that you can use in your therapy session. You will also learn how to create and layer ‘everyday stories’ into your hypnosis sessions. You will observe a live ‘fly on the wall’ demo session and then work in groups to create your own metaphors so that you can develop your confidence and skills. Telling stories in trance is very rewarding for client and therapist alike and can result in powerful, painless change for the individual. After attending this class you can expect to feel more confident to ad-lib in your therapy sessions and to use a mixture of real and cleverly constructed stories to help your client to achieve their desired outcome.
