F. Coaching with Metaphor - Shortcut to Transformation

A Clean workshop for coaches, this one-day workshop is packed with tools, techniques and approaches to work effectively with coachees’ metaphors, and to elicit and develop new thinking in metaphor. Next running on Zoom, dates to be confirmed.

Metaphors prevail in everyday language. Phrases like ‘swamped’ with work, ‘hitting a brick wall’ with a colleague, ‘over the moon’ with a recent success and many more are frequently heard in coaching sessions and are rich with potential for creating new insights, changed thinking and behaviours, and different results.

This workshop will run on Zoom, and will take place over two half-day online sessions, including practice.

As well as being a stand-alone training, Coaching with Metaphor is also one of the workshops that constitute our ‘Professional Clean Coach‘ certificated training.


You’ll discover how to:
• Work most effectively with the metaphors naturally occurring in your coachee’s language
• Elicit metaphors to give voice to internalised feelings to create change
• Use pictures and symbols to help coachees to connect with their goals
• Help people to develop metaphors for being at their most resourceful and apply these in pursuit of the outcomes they desire
• Learn to use Clean Questions to work beyond the conscious mind to facilitate transformation
• Use your coachee’s metaphors to tap into their deeply-held values so that they can harness the resulting motivation
