Facilitating self-exploration  as your client draws

Ask clients to make a simple, stick-figure drawing. The result will give you a window into their inner worlds. Follow up with the right kind of questions, and you can rapidly facilitate greater clarity and, often, a profound inner shift.

Five Clean Language Processes

 Are you seeking to offer more effective and efficient coaching AND make your job easier? Discover easy-to-learn, easy-to-facilitate processes that: 

  • Enhance your clients’ clarity and insight into any topic or issue

  • Empower your clients to discover for themselves what they need to know  

  • Effectively keep you from unintentionally influencing your clients’ self-exploration  

  • Engage your clients actively and creatively 

  • Easily compliment other methods/approaches   

Over the course of two days, we cover five script-based processes, developed by counseling and coaching innovator David Grove, that enable your clients to tap into their more intuitive knowing and discover what they don't know they know. 

Each process capitalizes on the way we humans instinctively and effortlessly give space meaning. Just as you can imagine a real, physical space in your mind, you can reverse the process and project your inner world into the physical spaces around you. As you move among these spaces guided by Clean Language questions, the different perspectives the spaces offer can reveal surprising insights, as a deeper wisdom emerges. 

With an introduction to emergence theory, demonstrations, and practice opportunities as both client and facilitator, you will leave ready to apply these five processes with your clients the next day! Appropriate for coaches and group facilitators at all levels of experience.

Facilitating self-exploration with Clean Language as your client draws

Clean Language is a game-changer. Using it to coach clients will shift your paradigm about why and how people do what they do, what they need to do to change, and what your role in their process should be.   

All you need to get started is some blank copy paper and a few markers. Ask clients to make a simple, stick-figure drawing of what they would like to happen, and the objects and symbols they depict will give you a window into their inner worlds. Follow up with the right kind of questions, and you can rapidly facilitate greater clarity and, often, a profound inner shift.   

Ask ordinary questions of your clients as they draw, and you are likely to interrupt their connection with their deeper knowing of their experience. Instead, they search their “in their head” awareness to answer you, which usually isn’t all that insightful as to what’s really going on. To get to a deeper truth, innovative psychotherapist and coach David Grove developed Clean Language, carefully worded questions using a client's exact words about their hidden inner metaphors to encourage solution-oriented self-exploration. Inner resources are strengthened, while blocks and maladaptive strategies are revealed and restructured.    

In this 2 day course, you will learn some basic Clean Language facilitation questions and strategies for directing your clients’ attention. For coaches new to Clean Language, it’s a great introduction, and you will take away some powerfully effective ways to get clients accessing wisdom they didn’t know they had, easily and early in their sessions, while keeping out your own biases by staying ‘clean’.   

Appropriate for both new and experienced coaches who work with any sort of client in one-on-one sessions. Clean Language enhances clarity and agenda-setting for practical projects, but it is unique in its effectiveness with clients seeking personal growth and development.
