Mindful Metaphors

Listen for yourself and give it a try!


For this demonstration you will need a piece of paper and something to draw or write with.  The long pauses are intentional  as  this  will give you time to engage in the process and add to your body map.

“A large part of self-understanding is the search for appropriate personal metaphors that make sense of our lives.”

– George Lakoff—Cognitive Linguist and Philosopher

Revelations from your core. 

Mindful Metaphors coaching is a process that helps you arrive at an answer, core insight, through a series of carefully worded, guided questions called Clean Language. It is a form of dialogue with your inner self. What you uncover are your own deepest truths–wisdom within you–that helps you clear any obstacle and transform it into an ally. The process is gentle, organic, powerful. It is effective yet also efficient and get to the heart of the matter.  Many people find resolution in just one session.


Clients who explore their challenges through the Mindful Metaphors coaching process find that they feel lighter, less encumbered, and  enlightened by the insights that emerge and are empowered. They find and work with their true voice.

How Does it work?

Individual Coaching

We start with a simple question "What do you want to have happen?" and I facilitate the process with you. We can meet virtually or one on one. You have to options to make the session comfortable for you.

Group Process

Looking to engage a group by exploring a theme or stuck place? Mindful Metaphors coaching is recommended to facilitate groups to explore and find creative solutions and improve relationships.


Based on Clean Language my approach is called Mindful Metaphors. This is the inspirational work of David Grove and formatted by Penny Tompkins and James Lawley of the UK. They combined David’s ideas in the fields of cognitive linguistics, systems thinking, and NLP to produce a model that could be taught to others, enabling you to achieve useful insights and results.

Why I Love Mindful Metaphors

I am continually inspired by my clients and the infinite variety of ways we find our way back to our hearts. Mindful Metaphors coaching is a very creative process that I love to facilitate. When I was first introduced to Clean Language, I was seeking to expand my understanding of the mind-body connection. After my initial training, I felt the transformative effects stirring in my being. I knew this was the language that spoke to my own personal transformation and healing. I learned that our original thoughts start with metaphors and that they are integral to how we think, feel, and express ourselves. I experienced that metaphor is an accessible tool to work with!
