I've been working with Caitlin for some years now. To start with, we were working together to produce her training manuals and I noticed that every single manual we produced had a section called, “Before You Begin”, which talked about setting expectations for the course and thinking about how to get the most from it. I really liked this idea, so much so that I created a “Before You Begin” section in my own book. This year, though, I have spent a lot of time training alongside Caitlin and have found the idea even more powerful in practice...

On Metaphor

What our customers say

"I’m a reasonably experienced business coach with some high profile clients, and with the tools I had at my disposal prior to Clean I was successful and my clients got good results. However, I’ve started using Clean very quickly after the programme and it’s taken my coaching and results onto another level. "

"Marian Way has a wonderful way of facilitating workshops, to allow everyone to contribute to the pace and dynamics of the learning… as we do when using ‘Clean’ with our clients. Inspirational."
Lisa Sturge Coach

"A fantastic resolution occured around my work with metaphor. It seemed to evolve around the work I have done with you so far. In short, I had a stuck moment and then into my awareness came a metaphor to resolve the issue. I was able to move the metaphor forward and develop the picture in order to resolve the stucknessof the situation. It was great!!! To work in this format exclusively has been such a wonderful release and a journey of discovery."
