Playful Change – Humour In Therapy : Exceedingly Good Additions For Your Therapy Toolbox : November 2014

If you are an NLP Practitioner, Hypnotherapist, Solution Focused Therapist, counsellor or a change worker of any form you will deeply understand the value of having several approaches to complement your main profession.

Effective therapy often involves going beyond any one specific protocol or pattern because all of our clients are individuals and respond better to some forms of intervention that others. That’s why its invaluable to have a variety of tools that can help your clients out of seemingly intractable thinking patterns or behaviours.

Phil Jeremiah is coming to Newcastle ( for the third time in four years ) this November to share his latest additions in the world of Playful Change. That is the structured use of humour and playfulness within a safe therapeutic setting.

Now have you ever considered the structured and deliberate use of humour, irrelevance and playfulness as applied to therapy? Especially with the people you find the most challenging to work with.

Playful Change in Therapy

Completing this workshop you will have both the skills and competency to interject irrelevance, humour or positive shock which can be easily incorporated into your current work or you could just as well utilise a full 20 minute Playful Change session inside your therapy work too.

The workshop will include patterns, group work and the opportunity to work with Phil one to one in a full 20 minute Playful Change session.

So you are confident in your application of the skills there will be many drills and exercises where you practice the patterns continuing to build on what you are learning over the weekend.

The weekend is guaranteed to be fun, relevant and structured. You can anticipate having a real laugh while your learning in experience.

November 22-23 : Newcastle upon Tyne : £150

Before the booking information, Im going to share a little history about how I was introduced to Phil and why I am inviting him back to Newcastle.

I was introduced and recommended to Phil’s work in 2009 by one of my first excellent teachers of NLP. Such a recommendation was real interesting and couldn’t be refused so I acted immediately intending to bring Phil to Newcastle.

Following a couple of telephone conversations and emails, I realised Phil is very much a kindred spirit and soon we had arranged dates for a two day training in the North East.

In early 2010 Phil came to Newcastle to teach Humour Works to a group of Hypnotherapists,  NLP Practitioners and a smattering of Solution Focused therapists and counsellors. The weekend was a huge success and the feedback from participants was extremely positive.

Phil Jeremiah IV is a world class exponent of Provocative Change, Thought Provoking Dialogue and Playful Change. Phil was one of Frank Farrelly’s ( creator of provocative therapy ) early and close in students.

My opinion is Phil is the slickest and most natural exponent of any of the ‘provocative’ styles facilitators I have seen. Plus his being a superb and fun teacher makes this a training you really must attend. You will be learning much more that patterns, you will be learning application and style.
