Margaret Meyer recently sent me a short e-mail about the talk she'll be giving at the Therapist's Forum on the 16th of November which I share with you now. Interest is beginning to gather for this event so we hope you'll consider joining us for Margaret's talk and the lively interaction and debate that is sure to follow on from it.

Loved by politicians as well as poets, the very latest research shows that metaphor is at the root of how people think, get inspired, create, and solve problems.  Metaphors are like zip files, compressing big information into very small packets.
Human beings are natural metaphor-makers and use an astonishing 6-8 metaphors a minute to communicate even quite ordinary things. It’s impossible to get through a working day  - or a therapy session - without them. Tapping into personal metaphors enables both clients and therapists to chart pathways through ‘stuckness’ and reluctance, and find new choices. 
 
Margaret Meyer is an organisational change consultant, coach and Gestalt counsellor. She has particular expertise in Clean Language, a facilitation approach especially geared to working with mental metaphors. Margaret is a member of the British Association for Qualitative Research, BACP, and an Associate of the Royal Society of Medicine.

Grounded in Faith: Psychotherapy and Pureland - paper presented at European Shin Conference 2012

Grounded in Faith: Psychotherapy and Pureland

In the modern age, psychotherapy has become a route which many people choose to help them face and move beyond their personal suffering. Not surprisingly many Western therapists tend to gravitate towards Buddhist ideas and, conversely, Buddhists are often interested in exploring how their faith…
