It is twenty-five years since Penny Tompkins and James Lawley first saw remarkable therapist David Grove demonstrate Clean Language and his unique way of working with metaphor. Penny and James’ intensive study of David led to Symbolic Modelling, a method now used throughout the world in therapy, coaching, education, health, research and many other applications.
Facilitating cleanly is a craft, and like all crafts there are ‘hidden’ skills that turn a technique into an art form. This series of online workshops explores what happens below the surface, behind the scenes and inside the mind-body of some of the most experienced clean facilitators on the planet.
How do they model symbolically? What do they pay attention to and what do they ignore? How do they relate to the client, their inner world and themselves cleanly? How do they get exceptional results even though they are using the same questions as a beginner?
Penny and James will reveal all!
Each series is designed around FOUR modules:
- Series 1: How do you know what question to ask? (recorded workshops)
- Series 2: The stucture of desire (recorded workshops)
- Series 3: How people change (current live course)

Penny Tompkins and James Lawley are the co-developers of Symbolic Modelling and leading authorities on the use of David Grove’s Clean Language and self-generated metaphor for personal and professional development. On each Series they are partnered by either Marian Way or Annemiek van Helsdingen. There is more about the four of us here
Our deepest appreciation goes to David Grove (1950-2008), the originator of Clean Language and the "launch pad" for all subsequent developments to emerge in the world of Clean.
