GINA CAMPBELL, M.Ed., CCP, CAPF Baltimore, Maryland, USA
Gina was inspired by her work with journals and literature as counseling tools. She further attained accreditation as a Certified Applied Poetry Facilitator (CAPF) through the International Federation for Biblio/Poetry Therapy, of which she was a board member and president.
Gina’s exploration of Clean Language began in 2003 while pursuing a Masters in Education degree in Counseling from Loyola University Maryland. She took an intensive study course at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY with James Lawley and Penny Tompkins, the originators of Symbolic Modeling, a Clean Language-based methodology. Gina continued her studies in England and France, earning her credential as a Certified Clean Practitioner. Drawing on her more than 25 years of experience teaching in a variety of contexts and her counseling background, Gina has been offering training in Clean Language processes, including Symbolic Modeling, since 2005. She is the author of four books on Clean Language (see Resources section).
Gina offers Clean Language sessions for personal growth and development via the Internet. Contact Gina for more information.
Notice: As a developmental counselor, Gina is qualified to work with mentally healthy clients who are working through the sorts of life challenges and transitions that all humans may face at some point or another in their lives. These include grief and loss, worry and stress, identifying passion or purpose, and determining one’s “next steps”. Clients with clinical–level mental illness, addictions, or debilitating depression should seek a psychotherapist. Symbolic Modeling is certainly appropriate to use with such issues by a licensed professional. In fact, Clean Language was initially developed by David Grove to work with trauma survivors.
