Adventures in Clean – Online June 2020

Imagine the opportunity to work with six leading therapists and facilitators using all of David Grove’s extraordinary techniques for change, insight and healing. Imagine, too, being able to watch those same therapists, live, working with a range of other clients. The unique factor of this year’s event is that it will be done online with all of the care, attention and connection we’ve created in the past.

The event starts at 12 noon BST with all the participants and therapists gathered in one Zoom room for a general introduction to the event, a Clean Set Up and an opportunity to clarify who's who, logistics, how to get the best from the event - and anything else you'd like to know before we begin. Then we'll break into different sessions - some parallel and some sequential. In each of these sessions, there'll be one or two facilitators working with a participant on a topic of their choice. When you are not participating as a client, you’ll be able to observe all of this and to ask the facilitator(s) your own modelling questions during the debrief sessions. This includes modelling what was happening in the facilitator's mind as they were working with the client as well as modelling the unfolding structure of the session and the client's journey. A real modelling Masterclass.

You will be able to sign up in advance for sessions when you will be the client and you will be free to watch as many of the other sessions as you wish.

Different people come to ‘Adventures’ for different purposes. Everyone will have at least one personal development session, but some people attend as much for the professional learning as for their own development. This is a unique opportunity to see a number of therapists work one after another and to be able to see different applications of very similar processes. When the facilitators work in pairs they'll also be observing and asking each other modelling questions to learn more about how each person works. 

If personal development or healing is your main purpose for attending, you’ll be able to gain from several sessions over the course of the four days, which can be on the same or different topics. You’ll get a chance to book with different therapists and experience a range of approaches. We’ll be using Clean Language, Symbolic Modelling, Clean Space and Emergent Knowledge to facilitate your personal journey of insight, clarity and change. Between your own development sessions, you can reflect, write, draw, talk with other participants in a small chat room, observe others’ sessions, ask questions or coach someone else and be supervised by one of us. There will sometimes be several things going on at once.

Please note that this is a group event and all sessions will be open for everyone to observe and participate. Everyone who attends the event will be expected to take part in at least one personal development session.

We will be operating from different time zones and will be able to offer a range of time slots over the four days. There will be breaks between sessions as well as opportunities to meet as a whole group to create the sense of connection and trust that supports this event.

Additional information

In order to ensure a high level of personal and professional development, spaces are limited to 20 people.

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.
