What is Clean Language?
Clean Language is a simple set of questions developed by counselling psychologist David Grove. These questions are used with a person's own words to direct their attention to some aspect of their own experience. Asking these questions in the right context often results in an interesting new insight or the recognition of some new possibility. And if that new possibility is then questioned using Clean Language, the result can be quite profound. Clean questions invite people to consider their experience from different perspectives and they are often surprised by their own capacity to generate new, powerful and useful ideas about their own experience.

At the March 2016 South-West Online Practice Group, we decided to practise “One Minute Motivation”. We were aware of this as a simple and efficient Clean Language tool for helping someone to get motivated to take action...
A key Clean Language question is "And what would you like to have happen?" However, just because you ask someone this question doesn't mean they will respond with a desired outcome. Sometimes, they will tell you what they don't want (a problem) or their response may sound like a desired outcome (e.g. "I would like find a way to eliminate this issue") - but it is more of a wish for the problem to be reduced or to go away, rather than an indication of what they truly want. Take our quiz to see how well you know the P.R.O. Model.
I’ve been reading “Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain” by David Eagleman. In it he argues that most of our processing is done unconsciously (hence ‘incognito’) and that our conscious minds have only a limited role – that of setting direction, or a desired outcome.
