Metaphor Therapy

Metaphor TherapyA metaphor, which is a figure of speech, always contains at least two parts – the thing stated and the thing it is being compared to. So, a metaphor always communicates on at least two levels, the face value meaning, and a symbolic meaning. For example, ‘pull up your socks’ does not mean that one is badly turned out, it implies that the person needs to pay attention and do something about their current situation. Deciphering both Verbal and Non-verbal Metaphors through visual and written imagery gives us an insight into problems deeply rooted in the Subconscious and helps release them by re-orienting and rephrasing the Metaphors in our life. This therapy works brilliantly with children, teenagers and abuse victims who cannot or choose not to express their blocks effectively.
