Watch Gina’s keynote address at the annual EAGALA conference on Clean Language in the arena.
2 DAY TRAINING: FACILITATING A CLIENT’S STORY IN 4 CLEAN STEPS
You’ve got a good handle on the EAGALA equine therapy model, but when you get in a session, you’re still not sure what to say? Not sure what to ask about or direct a client to find out more about? Clean Language expert Gina Campbell and EAGALA equine specialist Michele Schraf will teach you a simple 4 step process using Clean Language questions and directives that use your client’s own words in the moment to compliment your EAGALA skills. You’ll discover how to easily keep your stuff out of the session, keep it solution-oriented, and guide your clients to find and enhance their resourceful metaphors as they physicalize them in space. You’ll listen better, hear more, and relax as you learn how to follow your clients’ lead and let their stories unfold.
Limited to 12 participants, so you’ll get plenty of personal attention and coaching.

Gina Campbell was first introduced to equine therapy when three EAGALA practitioners took her Intro to Clean Language and Symbolic Modeling with her in 2013. Intrigued by its therapeutic use of metaphors and other goals and intents it shares with Clean Language, Gina has pursued her own understanding of the EAGALA model through continued work with Michele Schraf and Patti Schlough and attending an EAGALA training and the 2015 EAGALA conference, where she was a keynote speaker and workshop presenter. She continues to enjoy creatively integrating the two models for networking and practicing EAGALA groups.
Michele Schraf assists Gina in Clean Language/Symbolic Modeling and Clean spatial technique trainings. She is an EAGALA certified equine specialist (ES). She partners with several mental health clinicians in Pennsylvania facilitating equine-assisted psychotherapy (EAP) and equine-assisted learning (EAL) sessions for juveniles, individuals, and women’s support groups. Michele continues to experiment with integrating Clean Language with the EAGALA model.
