Meet Rachel Gilmore! With Neil Pavey, she runs Brighton-based 'Being Clean' which hosts a monthly practice group and Clean Language training events.
"This course was highly enjoyable and I took away a bunch of tools and techniques to support the work I do as a systems coach. Caitlin was really flexible through the programme working hard to meet the needs of everyone and I felt privileged to have learnt from someone who is clearly exceptional in their field. The course was made doubly enjoyable by the very relaxed atmosphere – held in the informal surroundings of Caitlin’s home 'The Practice' with wonderful healthy food cooked by husband Shaun. "
"This is a simply brilliant book. If you work with other people in any capacity, do get hold of a copy now - and don’t just read it, enjoy it and learn from it, but act on it. If you are a trainer, coach, educator or business person you will benefit from this book, just as you will if you are a psychotherapist, psychologist, counsellor, politician, parent or student. The reason I recommend it so highly and without reservation for anyone who wants to learn more about themselves and others is that it is not simply about skills, techniques and processes (though it has those in abundance), but it is about our attitudes to learning.* The author herself models curiosity, attentiveness, courage and invention. You will identify these qualities in yourself and be encouraged to develop them further. Caitlin writes openly and movingly about her own experience. Go with her. Trust her. Her account is eminently readable and inspiring. You will learn not only about working with groups and individuals, but also about working with yourself, I promise!"

From Contempt to Curiosity
"If you’re new to Clean Language, this beautifully organised and thoroughly user-friendly guide will take you by the hand and lead you through the initial strangeness of asking - and answering - Clean questions, and then through each important stage of working more “cleanly” with clients, including a very reassuring section on what to do when none of it seems to work. More experienced practitioners will appreciate the way each aspect of Clean is discussed in the light of current research and the way the often fascinating case-study transcripts (don’t miss “I Fart in Your General Direction”) are presented in bite-sized colour coded chunks with zippy illustrations and very helpful question-by-question commentary. One reason why this book works so well is because Marian Way spent five years figuring out how to present both the fundamentals and the fiddly bits of Clean in a way that follows the inner dynamic of an actual Clean session. Her great ability to present the convolutions of each client’s inner landscape clearly and coherently will make this book an essential addition to your Clean library."
