What the users say

The Team Cards “Growing Together” and the Emotion Cards are particularly useful for my work with teens. This is because their combination of images on one side and questions on the other offer a direct entry into deeper conversation. The images and questions allow the youngsters to compare their perception of themselves with how others perceive them – which triggers thoughts, discussion and self-reflection. The cards also work really well for uniting a group.


I got myself a set of Deep Pictures for the 30th edition of BEST’s Trainer Camp, on which a new generation of soft-skill trainers was raised. Over 12 days, we were able to use the cards in all sorts of situations, be it in training sessions for reflecting upon experiences, for retrospectives at the end of each day or for stimulating thoughts during individual coaching. The highlight for our participants was, of course, that at the end of the event everyone could take home a card with the personal greetings of the remaining participants.

In systemic counseling, a lot of emphasis is placed on acting and doing – the client does not lie “on the couch” and has to put his innermost feelings into words, but rather an attempt is made to use vivid methods to understand the client’s problems and subconscious inner images in a different and new way, perhaps from a different perspective.  The expressive picture cards of metafox offer many application possibilities for this.

Spark deep conversation...

At the first glance, they look like a postcard. At the second glance, the metaFox deep pictures provide a useful tool for coachers, trainers, educators, therapists and simply anyone striving for meaningful reflection and deep conversation.​

Application 1

...with powerful images...

The deep pictures come in boxes of 52 picture cards. Their front side will present you with carefully curated images, offering you metaphors and associations to connect with experience as well as entry points to conversation.​

...and meaningful questions.

When turning your card, you will face a coaching question, fitting the image's topic, as an invitation to take your reflection even deeper. Discuss in a group, write your answer on your card and make it your anchor and reminder.​

Human connection made easy

For personal reflection

Where do I want to go? What will the new year bring? And how do I want to spend my time? These and other questions can help you build the life you want. The deep pictures use beautiful images and thought-provoking questions that stimulate deep reflection and meaningful change.
  • Get a weekly inspiration dose by reflecting on one image and one question per week.
  • Build your own vision board with uplifting image and stimulating questions.
  • Spend quality time together with your family and friends and share dreams, concerns and gratitude.

For coaching

In coaching processes, it is important to use a variety of triggers in order to tap into your coachee’s inner insightfulness and creativity. The deep pictures can facilitate this process.
  • Find personal strengths, honest support and define clear processes.
  • Diminish inner resistance by using meaningful images.
  • Develop multiple solution strategies that are effective.

For workshops and groups

Groups and teams often experience very complex processes. The deep pictures are a carefully designed trigger to make the invisible visible, the implicit explicit, change dynamics and improve interaction among team members. Use the deep pictures during soft skill training, in team meetings or professional coaching as:
  • An ice-breaker for an event and conversation starter.
  • An opening for conflict solving discussions.
  • A parting token at the end of a seminar or training.
  • A prompt for clarifying emotions and needs in critical situations.

For human connection

The deep pictures are postcards with depth. They are a space for your thoughts, a microphone for your voice. Send one card a week for one year to your loved ones and make thoughtful greetings a habit.
  • For friends, family and the important people in your life.
  • For a more genuine, interpersonal communication.
  • For an empathic exchange.
