About David Grove

David Grove has developed a unique way of working with the symbolic nature of our inner worlds. He is continually expanding and refining his approach as he discovers more about the faculty of humans to represent their deepest experiences as metaphor. Soaking in a hot tub, Penny Tompkins and James Lawley interview David beneath a star-spangled Lake District sky.

It illustrates how to map the changing locus of attention; how to make sure all the information is woven back into the narrative, crossed over and transformed; and how to work with 'a nested childwithin'.
