What our customers say

"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."

Clean Approaches for Coaches

""I’m so grateful that I signed up for the Clean Language course. My rating is "Satisfied Over Expectation"! A training that shows a crisp, clean and useful method. To make 'as little as possible' gives me a new dimension. At the same time we were trained in a dimension of listening as (with training) will make me a better coach, educator and human being. Marian was an incredibly competent, safe, clear, sharp and humble leader. A model both in the method and as a course leader. Together with these wonderful colleagues, nothing could be better.
