Between the Lines of Clean Coaching

A 6-session masterclass with Marian Way

Join a small group of six coaches for a six-week programme of study. Each coach will enjoy one clean coaching session - based on Symbolic Modelling - with Marian which will be observed by the other five - i.e. each week it will be a different person's turn to be the client. Marian will work with you for about 20-30 minutes and then you will agree a task or a question to consider, while the others are invited to ask questions of Marian. This is an opportunity to get 'between the lines' of Marian's thinking and to learn different ideas for how to facilitate cleanly. All the sessions will be recorded for review afterwards. 

This class is suitable for coaches and clean facilitators who want to understand more of the nuances of working in this way. 


Frequently asked questions

What is Clean Language?

Clean Language is a simple set of questions developed by counselling psychologist David Grove. These questions are used with a person’s own words to direct their attention to some aspect of their own experience. Asking these questions in the right context often results in an interesting new insight or the recognition of some new possibility. And if that new possibility is then questioned using Clean Language, the result can be quite profound. Clean questions invite people to consider their experience from different perspectives and they are often surprised by their own capacity to generate new, powerful and useful ideas about their own experience.

What is Symbolic Modelling?

Symbolic Modelling was created by Penny Tompkins and James Lawley when they worked with and observed David Grove over several years, to discover what he was doing to achieve his phenomenal results. They combined David’s ideas with ideas from the fields of cognitive linguistics, systems thinking and NLP to produce a model which could be taught to others to enable them to achieve the same kinds of results as David.
