Description

What do you do as a therapist, teacher, doctor or manager when your client, student, patient or colleague says "It's like I'm hitting my head against a brick wall," "I've got a knot in my stomach" or "I'm looking for the right path to take"? "Metaphors in Mind" describes how to give individuals an opportunity to discover how their symbolic perceptions are organised, what needs to happen for these to change, and how they can develop as a result. Based on David Grove's pioneering therapeutic approach and use of Clean Language, Symbolic Modelling is an emergent, systemic and iterative way of facilitating the psychotherapeutic process. This comprehensive book covers the theory of metaphor, self-organising systems, symbolic modelling, the practice of Clean language, the five-stage therapeutic process, and includes three client transcripts.

Author Biography

James Lawley and Penny Tompkins are co-developers of Symbolic Modelling and leading authorities on the use of client-generated metaphor for personal and professional development. They have had numerous articles published which are available on their web site: www.cleanlanguage.co.uk They are both practising psychotherapists registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Together they train and supervise therapists, counsellors, coaches, managers and teachers in the use of Symbolic Modelling. Penny was co-managing director of a manufacturing company in the oil industry, and James was a senior manager in the telecommunications business. They use this experience when they coach managers and executives to become more self-aware and to develop their ability to think systemically. They also facilitate teams in the use of Clean Language and metaphor so they can model and learn from themselves. They are married, and live in London. They are also authors of A Strange and Strong Sensation is a training video of a complete Symbolic Modelling client session with on-screen annotation. It comes with a full transcript and unique 3-perspective explanatory booklet. They are available for: - training in Symbolic Modelling - private client sessions - executive coaching - supervision - team development - using metaphor with large groups - modelling in organisations - seminars, conferences and workshops For more information please email info@cleanlanguage.co.uk
