This podcast is the narrated version of my article Story Therapy; Why It Works And How To Do It With Your Clients.

Story therapy at the right time can facilitate psychological and even physical healing and embedding traditional tales into therapy sessions is something I do a lot.

In this episode I talk about:

  • So why does story therapy work?
  • How story therapy got rid of a boy’s warts
  • Read, listen and learn stories
  • Learn the story pattern, not just the content
  • How to make your stories hypnotic
