Using Metaphor and Storytelling in CBT with children, young people and families

Go Back


Metaphor and storytelling are powerful tools in working with clients. 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. Similarly, storytelling has a long and rich role in building relationships and understanding and can create a safe and playful space in therapy. This workshop examines how therapists, counsellors and coaches can use metaphor and storytelling creatively in their work particularly taking a CBT perspective. The aims are to enhance participant’s skills and confidence in using metaphor and storytelling in their work with both children and adults.
