A number of clients have been getting creative in session over the last few weeks, using some free drawing and some guided metaphors. It’s been quite the eye opener to watch how this has shifted perspective. Some really great discussions evolved as a result. We had a few mountains drawn, and it got me thinking about the mountain as a metaphor for progress.

If you were to draw your progress as a mountain, what would it look like?

Where would you be on the mountain?

What’s behind you? What is up ahead?

Are there any hazards are on the way? What do they look like? How can you navigate them?

What else do you notice about what you have drawn?
