Rachel Gilmore has so far attended eight days of
training with us – Clean for Teams plus a couple of modules of our Systemic Modelling Programme – and she is already using clean with several of her clients. When she told us she was already getting better results than with her existing methods, we were intrigued, so Marian interviewed her to

Over the years we’ve developed a number of courses that have Clean Language at their core, and now when you click on our Events page, there’s rather a long list… So here are some questions to help you to decide which is the right course of action for you.
Clean Language was developed by David Grove in order to help people to access more information about their own experience, rather than be influenced by a therapist’s ideas. He did not want to lead his clients. Of course, there are many more contexts where it's important not to lead someone...

Our topic for this Practice Group meeting was “Clean and …”. Several people in the group use Clean in combination with other models and methodologies and the idea was to find out how they do this.
