D. The Clean Foundation Modules: Modules 1 - 4

If you've experienced Clean in a taster session, or as a client, you probably already know how elegant and effective this approach can be. It may be unusual, but it simply works. No wonder it’s catching on fast with some of the sharpest and most innovative practitioners in business and in personal development. All training is being delivered via Zoom at present and the next Accelerated Zoom Training of Modules 1-4 will commence 25 Feb 2021, mostly with 2 interactive Zoom calls of about 4 hours in length per week, plus pre-work, including practice sessions between the interactive calls. The next Gradual Zoom Training will begin in April 2021 with one two-hour interactive group call per week, plus pre-work and a practice session between each interactive group call.

Clean is an elegant, sophisticated way to make a long-term difference. To confidently effect transformation, even in those situations which have stayed stuck for many years.

And best of all, with us it’s easy to learn: you can be using it in ‘real life’ from day one.

Clean Change Company offers what is probably the most comprehensive Clean training in the world:

The Foundation Modules (Modules 1 – 4), offer all the essentials for using Clean Language and Clean Space.  These Modules, in combination with our Professional Clean Coach training, plus additional work (written submission, coaching hours, supervision etc) have been awarded the Association for Coaching’s ‘Accredited Certificate in Coach Training’ certificate, making this training an excellent way forward if you wish to become an accredited coach.

The Advanced Modules (Modules 5 – 8) have been nicknamed ‘The Jedi Modules’ by participants, and they offer a chance to increase your ability to use your Clean skills with finesse by acquiring further modelling skills and a range of additional models and approaches for working with people who perhaps face complex difficulties, like binds or double binds.

What they’re saying about Clean

“Everyone is talking about it. I can personally vouch for the power of Clean.”Toby McCartney, editor of The Model magazine

“One manager saved over six man weeks of time. Another reduced waiting time from 4 weeks to two days. Another increased capacity by 35%. Huge reductions of personal stress were reported, as much as 50 per cent. A number of them got promoted, and someone won a national award!” Consultant Lynne Cooper describes the effect of a Clean training programme in the NHS.

“Clean is a fantastic tool. It’s just so versatile and so respectful.” Sheena Bailey, consultant

“Using metaphors takes communication to a whole new level. It brings a new dimension to business thinking and I have seen it transform people’s perceptions in conflict situations. This stuff really works!” Executive coach John Joint

What could Clean mean to you?

-Reduce stress and aggravation, so adding more productive time to the day
-Resolve conflicts more effectively
-Get people more motivated and therefore more proactive
-Make quick conversations count, in the street or at the coffee machine
-Get the more difficult people in your life to take ownership of their responsibilities
-Make your meetings more forward-focused, constructive, collaborative – and shorter!
-Devise better plans
-Manage competing priorities and demands – and help others to do the same
-Behave differently in the face of personal challenges.

Whether you’re a consultant… coach… therapist… change-worker… a people-helper of any kind… expect your clients to feel even more special as they move further, faster.

Clean may have a profound impact on your own life, too. The training offers the possibility of significant personal development as well as the possibility that you may change the way you think about the way we think!


Your trainers

The programme is led by Wendy Sullivan, who has worked with the originators of the field — David Grove while he was alive and Penny Tompkins and James Lawley for well over a decade. Her students are using their Clean skills on five continents. As an expert in accelerated learning, she ensures that our trainings are a multi-sensory experience, with plenty of ‘doing’ alongside the theory.

Wendy will be joined by the exceptional developer, trainer, coach and supervisor Dr Paul Field whenever his schedule permits.

David Grove, the originator of Clean Language, said: “Wendy Sullivan presents this tantalizing material in a structured, clear and entertaining manner. She excels at training the process by degree through discovery, practice and iteration so that the enchanting symbolic domain of experience becomes available for both your professional and personal use.”

Your next steps

Our programme of modules takes a step-by-step approach to your learning, with each Module building on what was learned in the previous one. So we require participants to start with Module 1 and proceed in order through the other Modules.

After completing Module 4, you can take part in our assessment process to become a Certified Clean Facilitator, and/or join our Advanced programme. Or you can complete our Professional Clean Coach certificated course.



We are now offering our Modules in two formats.  The dates and times of the interactive calls will be arranged to suit those on the training.


Gradual Zoom training, with one interactive call of 2 hours per week (plus some pre-work and practice between calls).


Accelerated Zoom training, with two approximately four-hour interactive calls – with breaks – per week (plus  pre-work and practice between calls).
