Your metaphors help you to discover yourself and understand your life from a new perspective.

Clean Language is a technique that is used especially in psychotherapy and coaching, and more recently as a research interview technique. Clean Language helps clients to discover and develop symbols and metaphors without any content introduced by the therapist/coach/interviewer. Clean Language was developed by David Grove in the 1980s as a result of his work on clinical methods for resolving clients’ traumatic memories.[1] As James Lawley and Penny Tompkins describe it, “He realized that many clients naturally described their symptoms in metaphor, and found that when he enquired about these using their exact words, their perception of the trauma began to change.”[2]

“Learning to read the language of symbols has a positive effect on your self-image and energy. You do not have to wait for a crisis to see things symbolically and accurately. You can start wherever you are.” Caroline Myss
