Client recommendations:

I have found Clean Language coaching to be a powerful experience. Each session has moved me forward in profound and useful ways. The shifts in my awareness have been transformative. Clean Language is deceptive in its power – it is a gentle, imaginative process yet it contains within it the potential to help you to make wonderful and surprising changes in your life. Barbara is a highly skilled, calm and empathetic coach, who creates a safe, creative space in which to explore.    Caroline G

Being listened to with such patience and space enables me to stop and think. I give up wanting to get anywhere and simply stay with the process, exploring and discovering and I realise that my thinking patterns have changed. The habitual patterns of response – the hooks – have been disabled so it is possible to have a different view. It is not that everything changes just that the familiar responses are backgrounded and I am able to imagine alternative ways of being. Lyle J
