Looking for easy, effective, and creative ways to engage your client's deeper knowledge of their learning and healing processes?
Psychotherapist David Grove had an insatiable curiosity about how a client subconsciously structures their experience and how change at the subconscious level happens. With a deep respect for the accumulated wisdom in a client's internal world, Grove determined to find ways to keep the facilitator from contaminating the client's experience while fostering self-discovery and self-healing. The result is Clean Language, carefully-worded questions incorporating a client's exact words coupled with strategic processes that create ideal conditions for a client to learn more about themselves. The Clean facilitator directs their client’s attention, trusting that as the client collects information about their mind and body systems’ strengths and weaknesses, insights and confusions, strategies and maladaptations, the system learns from itself, heals, and grows.
