In four online workshops James Lawley, Penny Tompkins and Marian Way will provide unique perspectives into what goes on behind the scenes when they, as highly experienced clean facilitators, work with their clients.
The theme for their 2020 series is The Structure of Desire.
This invaluable material for mastering the craft of Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling will include live workshops on:
- Outcomes: The desire to create
- Remedies: The desire to heal
- Problems: What are they good for?
- Resources: Making use of what you have
You may have heard of the PRO (Problem-Remedy-Outome) model, designed to help facilitators distinguish between these three types of experience and to encourage clients to pay attention to their desired outcomes. However, this represents only a tiny fraction of James, Penny and Marian’s thinking about these fundamental aspects of being human and the core of a clean change process. They will be revealing much more during these workshops - which are for people who have had some training and practice in using Clean Language & Symbolic Modelling.
Sign up for Series 2 (via Zoom) and you will also have access to special new bonus material not available elsewhere.
The price is $197.

What will I gain?
For each workshop, we will provide a short pre-workshop activity to help you start thinking about the topic. This may be a short exercise, a video to watch or an article to read – paired with some questions to help you reflect on the topic. This way, when you take part in or replay the live workshop you'll be ready to dive straight into the material.
Each of the four 90-minutes live workshops will focus on an aspect of the series topic rarely taught in our 20+ years of training. We cover what goes on 'behind the scenes’ during a clean facilitation. The workshops include activities you can do with friends or colleagues to try out the ideas and learn from your own experience.
Your library of learning materials
All pre-work, the workshop recording and extensive post-workshop resources will remain available within your InsideClean dashboard. Learning happens on many levels, and it is always useful to go back and review the material with new eyes.
You will also have access to never-released-before bonus material. It will include video recordings and transcripts of complete clean coaching sessions, plus videos of interviews with Penny & James about their development of David Grove's ideas.

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.
