One of the original reasons David Grove and Cei Davies Linn developed Clean Language was to work with someone’s inner child in a way that was respectful and which also made sense to that part of a person’s psyche.

You can attend this workshop primarily as a client – i.e. your main reason for attending is to experience the therapy process for yourself. There will be five ‘therapy’ places. Or you can join in primarily as someone who wants how to learn how to do this work and who is happy to observe us working with others. There will be four ‘observer’ places.

Everyone will do an initial session and then we will work more deeply and demonstrate the whole process with those who have opted to be clients. There will be many opportunities for questions and answers as we go along. A week before the workshop starts there be a 1-hour ‘set up’ webinar for everyone.

This is an opportunity to learn about:

  • The clues to the presence of an inner child
  • How to change your speed and tonality when asking questions of an inner child
  • How to keep track of time and sequence
  • Identifying ‘T-1’ and pristine nouns
  • Discovering and developing redemptive metaphors
  • Integrating healing
  • Creating ecology checks

NB The inner child process is ‘deep’ and a 3-day workshop will not equip you to run it safely unless you already have a strong foundation in Symbolic Modelling (Clean Facilitator Level 1) or are a qualified coach or therapist. You must have supervision in place and make a robust contract with your client.
