Want great results? Want to save 20%? If you’re ready to join the adventure, we offer what is probably the world’s most comprehensive training in Clean Language, Clean Space and Symbolic Modelling.

Joining our modular training programme will give you highly-polished, cutting-edge Clean questioning and listening skills, ready to intervene with surgical precision – and deliver the results you’ve dreamed of.

It’s possible to book one Module at a time if you’re not yet ready to commit to the whole programme. But if good value for money is important to you, and you’re already imagining yourself as a fully-fledged Clean Facilitator with skills to handle the most complex situations including clients’ double binds and self-delusion, you can book the entire course and receive 20% off the individual Module prices.

So why should I learn Clean?

“Clean gives you the confidence to really get results with your clients.” Mark Hawkswell, corporate trainer and coach

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

“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!” John Joint, executive coach

Your trainers

The programme is led by Wendy Sullivan, who has worked with the originators of the field — David Grove, Penny Tompkins and James Lawley — for over eight years. Her students are using their Clean skills on five continents.

David, the originator of Clean Language, says: “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.”

Penny and James, authors of Metaphors in Mind, train on our more advanced courses.

The compehensive programme

Over the course of about a year, you can build your skills from novice to expert.

Eachone-and-a-half to three-day module builds on what was learned in the previous one. So it is usually best 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 once you’ve seen your skills progress, you can move on to newer and more advanced material – a further four modules.

Module 1: Introducing Clean Language and Metaphor

Clear the clutter from your thinking and delight in the magic of metaphor! Latest research has revealed that metaphor is the very stuff of thought. If you seek to understand people and how they tick, whether you’re gathering information or helping people to change, you’ll want to be ready to help them explore their metaphoric worlds.

Module 2: Targeting Change

Ready for truly transformational change? In this module you’ll learn to confidently effect transformation and make a long-term difference – even in situations which have seemed well and truly stuck!

Module 3: Changing for Good

In these three days you’ll be learning to listen with even greater awareness, and building your modelling muscles to ensure your questions are right on target. You’ll explore the nature of change and use the power of metaphor to get stuck clients moving towards the life of their dreams.

Module 4: Space for Success

Get moving! The final frontier of your foundation-level Clean training, Spotlight on Space is based on David Grove’s newer work. You can expect this module to change the way you think about the way we think.

Module 5: Working Universally – Expanding Your Modeller’s Mind

Every client is a unique individual, but some patterns are near-universal. How can you use them to inform your work as a Symbolic Modeller? In this module we change our focus and step back to see the bigger picture, exploring fundamental models of human perception.

Module 6: Working Uniquely – Modelling in the Moment

How much of what your client is saying and doing do you really notice? How can you expand your capacity to take in and use more of their information as it emerges? In this module you’ll learn to be guided by the uniqueness of the individual, to notice whatever’s happening in “real time”.

Module 7: Binds and Double Binds

How do people who are stuck manage to stay stuck despite their best efforts to change? What if after a time you realise your client isn’t moving towards their desired outcome? What if change seems fine in theory, but doesn’t happen in the real world? It’s time to roll your sleeves up and get modelling at a higher level.

Module 8: Integration and Application

Our integration module in which you’ll assimilate all you’ve learned into a coherent Clean approach.  This is an opportunity to super-charge your facilitation and modelling skills, consider how you’ll embody Clean principles in all you do, and experiment with designing new Clean processes that are appropriate to a wide range of situations and contexts.
