What do you do as a therapist, teacher, doctor or manager when your client, student, patient or colleague says “It’s like 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?” Do you ignore the metaphorical nature of their communication? Or do you take their metaphors as an accurate description of their way of being in the world and ask questions within the logic of the information - without introducing any metaphors of your own?

`Metaphors in Mind` describes how to do the latter and how to give individuals the opportunity to discover how their symbolic perceptions are organised, what needs to happen for these to change, and how they can transform as a result.


The Clean Language Manual

I'd say this was a reference book rather than 'a good read'. I'm glad to have it on my shelves. I'm not a Clean Language practitioner, and that's why I find it useful for looking up key concepts.
