Harness the power of metaphors to improve your mental health

Metaphorical reasoning is the fundamental operating system of the human mind! Metaphorical Therapy leverages our innate potential to avoid mental illness. It helps us cope with common psychological problems by viewing them through the all-revealing lens of familiar often universal metaphors.

An easy way to support your mental wellbeing

The rise of mental illness across the globe is alarming. Thanks to rapidly evolving technology we’ve surged ahead in many areas of healthcare. However, the mental health crisis has been largely ignored.

Until now.

The Metaphorical Therapy System harnesses the proven power of metaphors to address common psychological problems and help you achieve lasting mental wellness.

Developed by Dr. Mark Whittington, a Psychiatrist with over 30 years of experience, the System brings desperately-needed, easily accessible help and hope to millions of people struggling with serious, but sadly increasingly common, psychological problems.

Metaphorical Therapy uses expertly linked metaphors to help you explore your issues safely through a metaphorical lens. It’s fast, engaging, and flexible. What’s more, it’s as easy for practitioners to integrate into normal therapy sessions as it is for ordinary people to use as a potent self-help resource.

Like the many hundreds of patients who have already experienced the benefits of Metaphorical Therapy, you will soon come to appreciate its potential to dramatically alter the landscape of cognitive therapy and psychological education.

The world’s first metaphor-driven approach to preventing mental illness while maintaining psychological health and wellbeing has arrived.
