Learn Clean Language

We use Clean Language to inspire capability in groups and individuals - and we can teach you to do this too. What would you like to have happen?

Clean Learning events online

Due to the coronavirus, all our events between now and the end of August will be online. As well as all the reasons you may already have for taking part in clean training, this is also one way you can stay in touch with others, use the time productively and not feel so isolated.

What our customers say

"The weekend was peppered with moments of profound revelation – the magical mystery of attaching meaning to metaphor in a wholly individual way allowed the weekend to be life changing giving me resources previously unavailable to me."
Dolly Kary
Personal Journey

"If you’re new to Clean Language, this beautifully organised and thoroughly user-friendly guide will take you by the hand and lead you through the initial strangeness of asking - and answering - Clean questions, and then through each important stage of working more “cleanly” with clients, including a very reassuring section on what to do when none of it seems to work. More experienced practitioners will appreciate the way each aspect of Clean is discussed in the light of current research and the way the often fascinating case-study transcripts (don’t miss “I Fart in Your General Direction”) are presented in bite-sized colour coded chunks with zippy illustrations and very helpful question-by-question commentary. One reason why this book works so well is because Marian Way spent five years figuring out how to present both the fundamentals and the fiddly bits of Clean in a way that follows the inner dynamic of an actual Clean session. Her great ability to present the convolutions of each client’s inner landscape clearly and coherently will make this book an essential addition to your Clean library."
Nick Pole
Clean Approaches for Coaches

"A thoroughly enjoyable training in relaxed and friendly surroundings. After only a day's training I feel ready to use the skills I have learnt and I would certainly recommend Clean Learning."
