The Metaphives system is an approach to working with metaphors that Nicolai Elberling first introduced in December 2017 at The Quest Institute’s Saturday Salon.

You will be learning how to spot client metaphors that help create profound change. How to redirect a client’s experience of their reality, by exploring those metaphors that appear during unconscious moments and how they may be expressed.

Hypnotherapists will increase their existing knowledge of working with metaphor and how to resolve challenges that may appear when working with this approach.

Nicolai’s passion for metaphor first began when he was introduced to a short transcript of metaphor used by Milton Ericson. Nicolai then went on to study a hypnotherapist called Scott Jansen who took this passion to another level.

An excellent opportunity to leave the day with new ideas, fresh inspiration and some new techniques and tool to enrich our work.
