Join us to experience the ChrisLin Method first hand
The ChrisLin Method
The ChrisLin Method is an approach developed by Christina and Lindsey that enables practitioners to work successfully using Creative techniques with their clients.
It offers a unique way of working with the client's imagery and a questioning method that centres wholly on the creative piece. By following this approach practitioners are able to help clients uncover their inner thoughts, values and beliefs that are 'out of view', in their unconscious, and come to understand, and most importantly change, the impact on their thinking patterns, behaviours and mental wellbeing.
The ChrisLin Method comprises 5 Steps and 9 Core Questions plus a variety of Frameworks for working creatively with certain emotions and behaviours. Please see our Shop for more information.
You can experience and learn more about The ChrisLin Method during our 12 hour Accredited Training Course where we dive into the structure of the Method and a variety of ways of working creatively so you can develop further skills such as working with layers, components, language and much more.
In this 12 hour course you’ll participate in creative methods that support your professional and personal development.
By experiencing them for yourself, and working on areas that are important to you, you'll feel the real power of working creatively and how it opens up new perspectives.
And that means you will feel confident and comfortable asking your client to do the same.

"At the edge between the known and the unknown there is a fertile place, full of possibility. Playing at the end can lead us to experience fresh new learning, creativity, joy and wonder"

What others say
"I have used your ways of working online and face to face. The Anger shapes, Boundaries and the Shame pebbles particularly. Amazing when a few weeks later a client picked up the same decorated pebble and was surprised not to feel the same depth of shame and said he would now choose a lighter pebble."
"A client couldn’t understand why I mentioned her parents divorce that we had used your Anger shapes with, as she felt it wasn’t an issue... it had been a main issue causing such depression but it was no longer there ! It’s almost magical what I have seen using your techniques. I love them."
“What makes squiggles on a sheet of paper not just colour, shapes, curves, lines, dots and dashes? When you can translate them into a language that enables you and others to understand your state, your emotions, your thoughts, relationship with yourself and the world outside of you.”

Do I have to be artistic?
No, no artistic ability is required by you or your client.

We trust that you will be as creative as you need to be in the moment. Drawing squiggles on a page is all the ability you need!
It's about using alternative ways, other than the spoken word, to express what's going on - using colour, shapes, writing and other inspiration including the natural world to explore thoughts and behaviours and find a deeper understanding.
By experiencing the ChrisLin Method, you will understand how the tools and Frameworks work and how powerful they can be in providing you, or your clients, with an opportunity to find new perspectives and gain new insights that help create a positive shift.
