About the Workshops


3 Days - A Clean Approach to Re-forming Habits, Compulsions and Addictions

Join Penny and James in this interactive workshop and learn how to use Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling to enhance your ability to work directly with your client’s unwanted habits, self-sabotaging behaviours, compulsive and addictive patterns.

Penny and James’ modelling of clients with these systemic patterns has revealed general structures. The workshop will feature how to facilitate clients to self-model their Desire-Impulse-Action patterns – and what to do when ‘will power’ isn’t enough. By slowing down their internal process, clients can examine things that happen in the blink of an eye, enabling them to amplify ‘warning signals’, identify ‘choice points’ and discover how to ‘modulate' their desires and impulses, channelling them into more productive and fulfilling activities. Modulation, according to Ian McGhilcrist is a neurological “process that resists, but does not negate. It is the imposition of necessary distance, or delay, enabling something new to come forward”.

There will be demonstrations of how embodied metaphors can reveal multiple choice points where clients can make different decisions about their habitual problematic behaviours. The workshop will also include personalised in-the-moment support during the practice activities.

At this 3 day workshop you with learn:

  • The systemic and subjective nature of habitual patterns.

  • How to facilitate client’s to self-model their personal embodied metaphors for these patterns.

  • How to facilitate clients to identify choice points in their process.

  • How solutions to apparently intractable problems can emerge spontaneously.

Participants are expected to have some experience of asking Clean Language questions; and a knowledge of the basics of Symbolic Modelling would be an advantage.

If you are new to Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling and would like to attend this workshop, we are able to assist by offering a 50% discount (only US$299) on an online introductory course created by Penny and James. It consists of 10 hours of video (including 8 demonstrations of which 4 are complete coaching sessions), 6 quizzes and a 37-page workbook. We highly recommend people new to the process take this course before the workshop in March. Details on how to access this training will be provided after your booking.

1 Day - Clean Language Live:

Penny Tompkins and James Lawley reveal the behind-the-scenes of Symbolic Modelling sessions

Observe Penny and James working with clients and get the inside story on how they facilitate the emergence of embodied metaphors and how they know which clean question to ask.

David Grove realised that just a few basic Clean Language questions were all that was needed to create the conditions for clients to experience the wonders of systemic change. The skill and artistry comes from which questions are selected and how they are applied to each individual client. 

This workshop is open to coaches, therapists and other facilitators at all levels of experience but it is not an introduction to Clean Language. It is a rare chance to experience ‘live’ the mastery that comes with dedicating 25 years of developing and teaching this work.

You will have the opportunity, if you wish, to take part in a unique format where some participants practice working with a client while Penny and James provide real-time coaching to the facilitators.
