Marian Way: Director of Clean Learning and Author of Clean Approaches for Coaches


Marian came across Clean Language in 1999 when she attended an NLP Conference in London, where JamesLawley was running a workshop about binds. Marian volunteered to be the ‘demonstration’ subject – and she’s been hooked ever since. By 2001 Marian had dedicated herself to becoming an world-class Clean Language coach and trainer. She has delivered training in the UK, USA, Russia, Australia and Japan. In 2014 she joined forces with Caitlin Walker who created the Systemic Modelling process for using Clean Language with groups and their company, Clean Learning, offers a full range of Clean Language trainings. They also run a consultancy, Training Attention, where they put their skills to practical use in community, education, health and business projects.

Marian is known for her logical, relaxed training style – with a bit of challenge thrown in for good measure. She is able to distill complex information into small chunks, and present it in a way that makes it easy to learn. She understands her learners and has a knack for making things clear.

Marian is the author and publisher of “Clean Approaches for Coaches” and edited and published Caitlin’s book, “From Contempt to Curiosity”. She is currently working on a book with James Lawley about another of David Grove’s innovations: Clean Space.
