The Magic of metaphors

"People will say stuff that they are not aware that they are saying. If you are really listening you will hear some of the language." Simon Bowen

The stories we tell contain a hidden message. When a person speaks they use metaphors and repeat words and phrases that reveal what is currently concerning them. The skills of Story Listening teaches you how to 'hear' the underlying message and feed your observation back to the speaker in a way that gives them clarity and helps them make an informed decision.
