Using Metaphors with Coaching

As a tool for coaching, the client's metaphors give you an insight into their unique perception of their situation and their goals. When the client tells you that they can 'see light at the end of the tunnel', that is what they are experiencing. There is light for them, and they are in a tunnel. They will unconsciously 'know' much more about their situation from this metaphoric viewpoint.

Tangled Spaghetti in My Head: Making use of metaphor
Many therapists and counsellors work intuitively with their clients' metaphors -- without knowing there is a language model and a process for doing so. Clean Language is the basis of the appoach and it can be encorporated into most therapeutic modalities.
How to create a 'clean' company
I ran a workshop at the 10th International Anti-Corruption Conference held in Prague in October 2001: "How to create a 'clean' company" i.e. one run in such a way that the risk of corruption is prevented. The workshop was designed for the strongly multi-cultural setting, and the metaphors generated were sometimes much richer than those one might meet in a workshop with UK nationals.
Metaphors of Organisation part 2
This is the second part of a two-part article:

Part 1 explained that underlying every theory of management or organisation is a metaphor. It described eight commonly used metaphors and Gareth Morgan's method for analysing and facilitating organisations to change.

A Moment in Metaphor

The only information we have about the client at any given moment is symbolic information. What happens when we respond to that information in the moment using clean language, and what happens when we do not?


Role of Metaphor in Recovery from Trauma
By Susan Lien Whigham | Published 01 01 2006
Advanced metaphor
Due to emotional sensitivities, traumatized individuals will often (unwittingly) choose metaphors in place of literal language to describe their traumatic experiences evident in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). We can help individuals recover from traumatic events by learning to communicate with them using metaphorical language.

This article describes a structured approach to working with embodied metaphors. The approach is based on Robert Dilts' (1990) method of combining problem states with resource states to create a desired state. When working with metaphors the process can be rewritten as follows: problem metaphor + resource metaphor = desired outcome metaphor.
