Imagine you are riding on the back of a beautiful African Elephant… this powerful metaphor helps therapists explain the benefits of using hypnotherapy alongside counselling and psychotherapy.

Metaphors and stories are very useful in therapy. As every good therapist knows, we can’t give advice. Instead we have to help our clients to find their own path. So metaphors and stories allow us to give our clients direction without giving them advice. Also they encourage our clients to find answers inside themselves in a creative and non-intrusive way.

Stories Are Part of Our Early Learning Set

When we were young, we were told stories to help in so many ways.

  • Keep us from harm (Cinderealla and the importance of not speaking to strangers)
  • Learn important lessons (value what you own and don’t steal from others, Jack and the Beanstalk)
  • Guide us towards making good decisions (3 Little Pigs). 

Stories, particularly those that engage the imagination and access emotional states are often the most effective in therapy. The Elephant and Rider story above will help your clients understand the power and resourcefulness of the subconscious mind and how the rider must learn how to guide and direct the journey.

Therapeutic stories help your clients move from thinking into taking action.  They provide insights to shift unhelpful beliefs and open up our mind to exciting new possibilities.

But where do you start?  Use the video script to explain how powerful the subconscious mind is and how change must happen at this level for it to have lasting effects.  You can do this by using the Elephant and Rider Metaphor script.
