Where is your creative place? Do you have one? How can you find it?
One of our students, Sharon Goldie, joined our Clean Language: Core Skills training for a second time after a three-year gap - and we wondered what she had been up to in between – how had she been using her Clean Language skills?
Many people come across Clean Language by talking with a friend or colleague. Some learn ‘a bit of clean’ on an NLP or a coaching course. Others come across it online.

A truly remarkable account of a mother's determination to do whatever it took for her autistic son to be at his best… and how this relates to clean.
On my very first day at infant school, I fell in love with the idea of being a teacher. How wonderful, I thought, to be standing at the front of the class telling everybody what to do. So I spent the next seventeen years working towards this ambition - and when I got my first teaching post, I walked into school feeling very proud of myself. I was a teacher at last!
