“What a Clean question does is arrest both time and space.

In Clean Language, we drop down in between the lines of the semantic and linguistic carrier, to the subtext that sits underneath.

Clean Language lassoes a word and drops it into this space. So we enlarge the space so that we can create the client’s language in metaphor, or memory, or behaviour, or coughs and splutters – any kind of communication.

Then what happens is we gather that information in this different language of metaphors and symbols.

Clean Language has to create the metascape – like a landscape that is a representation of a client’s internal experience.”
