Venue details


It is twenty-five years since Penny Tompkins and James Lawley first saw remarkable therapist David Grove demonstrate Clean Language and his unique way of working with metaphor. Penny and James’s intensive study of David led to Symbolic Modelling, a method now used throughout the world in therapy, coaching, education, health, research and many other applications.

Facilitating cleanly is a craft and like all crafts there are ‘hidden’ skills that turn a technique into an art form. These series of online workshops explore what happens below the surface, behind the scenes, and inside the mind-body of some of the most experienced clean facilitators on the planet. Join us to find out how Penny and James:

  • Model symbolically
  • Decide what to pay attention to and what to ignore
  • Relate to the client, their inner world and themselves cleanly
  • Get exceptional results even though they are using the same questions as a beginner
Expand description

There are now four InsideClean series available:

Series 1, 2 and 3

Series 1: How do I know what question to ask
Series 2: The Structure of Desire
Series 3: How People Change

These were recorded between 2019 and 2021 and are now available for you to watch and learn from at your own pace - and you can save money by buying two or three series together.
