Listen to the metaphors via Danny Glasspool's online hypnotherapy recordings.

The metaphors have also been used online extensively during the COVID-19 pandemic to provide support to adults and children through relaxation sessions with a variety of therapists.

Effective Metaphors for Children by Allegra Etheridge/Allegra Stone

Perhaps you know a child who would benefit from increased self-confidence - who wants to overcome being bullied or to manage their anger. They may be bed-wetting - or have moved house and are adjusting to change.


They could be struggling with bereavement or illness. Just as each child is unique, so the forty metaphorical stories in this book address a wide range of issues which are unique to children. 

The book can be used:

- in the therapeutic environment
- by teachers as a discussion tool at school
- by parents at home, as a bed-time story

'Effective Metaphors for Children' aims to support a child to feel understood and empowered to bring about their own emotional good health and resilience.

This book was published in 2017.

Both books are available to purchase at Waterstones Booksellers.
