Clean Approaches for Coaches
Clean Approaches for Coaches is about creating the conditions for change within a coaching session, quite naturally and without giving advice, making suggestions, or interpreting your clients’ needs. It answers a question many new coaches have: “OK I get that it is the client who does the work and that I have to keep my opinions to myself - but how do I do that?”.
Throughout the book, there are plentiful examples, diagrams and case studies to aid your learning. Written in a clear and engaging style, with quirky illustrations created by the author, this is not just a how-to book. It is also a story book and a reference book. And whether you are a new or experienced coach, and whether you are new to Clean Language or a veteran, this is a must-have book.
Marian has captured the multi-layered and multifaceted world of working with Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling with simple elegance and eloquent clarity. The layout, the content, the colours, the case studies and explanations take you on a journey of discovery and exploration with Marian pointing out the many wonders to be noticed and guiding you on your way.

I received my book yesterday. Oh boy is it beautiful! I've only started to read it, but the tone is clear and engaging. The layout is great. Illustrations are detailed enough to clarify topics, but simple to leave room for your own overlying metaphors. The paper's of high quality: heavy and glossy. And the book stays open when layed flat - a huge quality criterion for me as well. Very well done! I've only started to read it during commute this morning; I'm eager to continue.Nicolas Stampf
This book is worth its weight in gold! Packed full of clear, useful diagrams and case studies, this is a ‘must-read’ for anyone wanting to work with Clean Language. Combining the principles and theory with practical application in an effortless blend, it has enabled me to deepen my existing knowledge of Clean Language and has provided the clarification and additional explanation I was searching for. I will continue to use this wonderful resource regularly both for my client work and in everyday life.Lisa Sturge
