Counsellors and therapists who work with people struggling with grief and loss suggested this particular set of symbols. They work well with people grappling with the big questions in life. Symbols is a box of 120 evocative picture images that work as short cuts – ‘cosmic worm holes’ – to understanding personal thoughts and feelings. The images are simple, free-hand line drawings of everyday objects that can suggest layers of meaning to the person looking at them – whatever their age. Symbols can be used with individuals and groups as a therapeutic tool for building conversations and relationships, setting goals, creating meaning around life issues, storytelling and creative writing.
