Is weight loss an uphill struggle or an easy ride for you? Are you fighting the battle of the bulge? The metaphors (and cliches!) you casually use in your language offer clues to how your body thinks - and can provide a fast track to changing things.
David Grove's fascinating and fun process, Clean Language, is designed to work with your own metaphors to change the way you think by influencing how your body thinks. And so some of its most successful applications have been in the area of weight loss and fitness.
On this exploration day in central London, you'll get to find out why that's so - and how you can use the same approaches to help yourself and, where appropriate, your clients.
Why should Clean help when other approaches have failed? When should you choose it?
And how can you best combine it with the other methods you use - including handing out advice about diet or exercise regimes? Does it work most effectively in its "pure" form, or in combination with other approaches?
And when should you dump the Clean and select another approach from your toolkit instead?
Join Judy Rees and guest speaker Gary Turner for this one-day event and enjoy live demonstrations of Clean Language coaching, presentations, and lively discussion.
This event is open to all, but is intended to appeal to people who like to learn by engaging directly with their own experience and with other people. There will be very little "chalk and talk" but lots of new insights!

As a successful former professional sportsman, and now hypnotherapist and personal trainer, I fully understand what is required to achieve the very top performance. My expert area is sports performance covering all aspects of nutrition, weight loss, and physical performance – on a conditioning, technical and psychological level.
This knowledge has led me to winning thirteen World Titles at various sports. As my career came to a close I used my knowledge to drop from 108kg-84kg in 14 weeks, all of it fat and water, without losing any lean tissue and with my performance increasing. I now utilise this knowledge to help my clients.
I believe that we should continually test and improve our work otherwise we’ll be sliding backwards. I study constantly, everything from interventions, neurology, psychology, cognitive linguistics, to the works of my leading peers. I integrate all of this knowledge into my own personal style. My studying led me to Clean Language which I now incorporate in all of my work - it is an integral part of every client interaction. Sometimes I work with Clean Language in a ‘pure’ form, yet mostly I combine Clean Language as a ‘bolt on’ to make every one of my interventions much more efficient.
At this event I am looking forward to explaining how I utilise Clean Language in respect to weight loss and fitness, how I incorporate Clean Language into all my interventions, giving lots of demonstrations, and am really looking forward to the discussions that will follow and exploring further.

I'm co-author of Clean Language: Revealing Metaphors And Opening Minds, I coach using Clean Language and and I teach people to use Clean Language in their coaching and consulting practice. As the founder of www.learncleanlanguage.com I'm committed to getting David Grove's methods into the hands of as many peple as possible, worldwide.
And I'm particularly fascinated by how Clean Language coaching uses the metaphors that underpin people's thinking to promote change in both the body and the mind.
The approach has certainly helped me and hundreds of other people in our quest for a healthy lifestyle. In this event I want to share techniques that have worked for me and for others - and perhaps trigger conversations that will develop even more effective approaches.
