A highly skilled and experienced group facilitator, Caitlin’s unique strengths lie in her ability to detect patterns in communication to bring those patterns to a group’s awareness. For over 30 years Caitlin has been facilitating groups and teaching them to self-facilitate, that is to move from contempt and conflict towards curiosity and quickly to collaborative action. Caitlin works as comfortably in the board room as she does with disaffected, violent teenagers and uses her skills to identify and dispel drama at source. But most importantly, she shares those skills so clients can become self-organizing and independent.
As well as working directly with groups and individuals Caitlin designs and delivers large scale culture change and training projects and using the process of Systemic Modelling. She trains a diverse group from across the organization in self-coaching tools and then co-devises an intervention with them to create and embed the desired culture. Caitlin trains and delivers projects worldwide and has Clean Language study groups in USA, Russia, Malaysia, Japan and Europe.

The seeds to any change a client requires to go through, are contained in the problems they arrive with. A coach pays exquisite attention not only to what their coachees say but also to how they present themselves and to how they are approaching new challenges. Through open ‘clean’ questions the coach’s role is to direct the coachees attention to see more clearly what is already there and then to widen, deepen and to alter their inquiry into their problems and their outcomes. From this place they reach new insights, new innovations and develop home-grown solutions, that mean they leave the coaching session able to do things differently while maintaining their integrity. My experience is that people are able to change remarkably and effortlessly when all of their faculties are engaged and when we make the most of their experience and expertise in the change process.
