Humour In Therapy And Coaching DVD

Humour In Therapy & Coaching DVD

When we remember even just one of the times when we have quite literally cried laughing, we remember something else too! We remember that honest laughter more then makes us feel very good, we remember laughter can be one of the greatest and most powerful of healers.

This comprehensive six DVD set “Humour In Therapy & Coaching” is an absolute gold mine for any of us serious about using humour in our therapy and coaching practices. As well as a powerful, safe and fresh approach, this DVD set is an extremely thought provoking recording from a fantastic two day workshop.

  • Rich in Content and Process Examples
  • Non-liner Learning
  • Exercises and Drills
  • Full Sessions
  • Session Debriefing

Phil provides training, motivational speaking and support to organisations in the use of humour. Laughter in the workplace is proven to reduce symptoms of stress and can promote good team working in a fun way with groups or individuals. This two day workshop offers us the opportunity to experiment with, understand why and how, and develop confidence in using humour in coaching or therapy.

It’s a must for your development and an even greater must for right now – with our economic and social structures all in turmoil, we could all do with a little humour to help us frame it in ways that are useful to and for us and to and for our clients.

Phill Jeremiah’s ‘Humour Worx’ using humour in therapy is a seriously humorous, often irrelevant and completely client centred way of working. This approach helps even the most stuck clients make beneficial changes. A ‘Bubble’ session has the gentle power to help shift clients from problem states to resource states and create lasting and powerful change. In the ‘Bubble of Possibility’ anything and everything is possible …

With 20 years plus experience in using a humour based approach, maybe you are ready to come on this exciting journey into the Bubble Of Possibility … So … What is the Bubble Of Possibility?

Nigello, Yes Phil has lit a fire. Now I will now illuminate you!

I thoroughly enjoyed Phil’s workshop. Apart from the actual content, which was fascinating, his slick delivery meant that the weekend flew by. He is a superb and extremely humorous presenter, who could give many comedians a run for their money! He brought the topic to life through a wide range of actual examples and life experience. Thought Provoking Dialogue is a brilliant tool which complements other approaches. I have used it regularly since to great effect.”

Phil Jerimiah has been providing training in the UK and Europe for over 20 years to a wide range of professionals and organisations and has worked in the field of personal development for even longer. He was a qualified Senior Mental Health Social Worker, approved under the Mental Health Act 1983. Phil has extensive training and a wealth of experience in the fields of adult psychiatry, psychotherapy, counselling, hypnosis, brief therapy, NLP, EFT, EMDR, Life coaching and clinical risk assessment in mental health.

I attended the workshop for Thought Provoking Dialogue (TPD) without any prior knowledge of what this therapy actually meant in terms of therapeutic change work. I listened to Phil Jeremiah who explained what TPD was and also observed him whilst he carried out this work in his metaphorical “Bubble of Possibilities”. All I can say is that when the change happened, for whoever sat in that bubble with him, it was almost palpable as I sat in the audience and witnessed the change happening to that person in front of me. I got into the bubble with Phil Jeremiah and can say without reservation that he is an exceptionally skilled therapist, indeed at times it was as if he could read my mind before even I knew what was on it. I have heard and read the statement that TPD is not for everyone! I would disagree with that and say it is a necessary part of any therapists toolbox if they are committed to facilitating change for the client and, therefore, would urge all therapists to attend Phil Jeremiah’s TPD workshop and get one of the most skilled therapists to teach this art to them

So, here it is a DVD of a Humour Worx weekend. This is specifically for therapists, coaches, change workers and anyone interested in adding and incorporating a real dimension into how you work with clients.

When I first did the ‘Thought Provoking Dialogue’ weekend course with Phil Jerimiah, I was not sure of what to expect. What I found was a very fun way of resolving problems, that was both rapid and very effective. The processes used are very well structured as is the teaching methodology, which involves clear explanations along with actual practice of the processes involved. All in all an excellent piece of therapeutic technology.

When You Are Learning At You Best

I recently had the excellent experience of a days off road rally driving Adventure with one of my bestest mates in the world. This all took place in Yorkshire on a WWII airfield. All in a rear wheel souped up purpose built car.

So all I wanted was to experience driving. To do it. Here is what happened.

One of the driving tutors did an introductory speech, before we were allowed Into the cars. This consisted of an energetic build up, which was very good and Then they went into ‘how’ a rear wheel drive car works and how we ( the participants – all 11 of us ) should drive the car.

I switched off ( you surprised? ) just after 10 minutes of explanations of what Was coming and how to do it – explanations of experience. I was literally Chomping at the bit, ready to get into the car and just do it. I want the physical Experience without all of the explanations. See for me, I much prefer doing Something and then maybe talking about it; After the experience …

Luck would have it, I had the same tutor as a driving instructor. After lap one They had me pull up and then went into an explanation of what I should do on The next lap. I know they meant well but their explanations where not helping Me build up my experiential knowledge of driving the car. So I told them that What they were saying wasn’t helping me learn to drive.

They responded that they had never been told that before and immediately Went into more ‘helpful’ hints and tips. At that point I simply said “Shut up … And help me”. I told them that their help while driving was extremely useful ( it was ) but all this ‘if you had done’, ‘what you should do at corner ‘x’ was to Me really unwanted at my present level of experience.

They said they would work with me and went into a story that they had helped A man with severe brain damage successfully drive the car by just offering tips While driving. I said that was a good idea; Still not sure about the brain damage But hey …

Well, when the competition started; Yes there was a competition, set up Between male and female drivers ( ??? ). With the real assistance of my tutor I Did come second place overall. Now, I was never for one heart beat interested In a competition on that day, I am guessing that comes much later when I have The skills to race! Vroooom vrooommm!

So here is my point. When we are learning a new skill, by choice or by Nececcity, there is nothing wrong and everything right with demanding an Experiential learning. When we were little, much younger, we learned to speak and walk ( things we are naturally excellent at ) by experience and not via verbal Description. This is my much preferred and valued learning style.

What is yours?

How are you learning at your best?
