Newcastle upon Tyne : November 2-3

Provocative Coaching and Pain Management Newcastle upon Tyne

Suffering with chronic pain can put your life on hold. Are you sick of another day of miserable gruelling pain? Sometimes it’s so bad that you may have even considered ending it all. Living with your pain there is the constant memory of how bad it has been in the past and the chilling anxiety of how bad it will be tomorrow and all the days after. This is for you whether you are experiencing either deep physical or psychological pain.

As a therapist this is also for you when you are honestly committed to really helping your clients who are suffering terribly by you learning new methods and techniques to integrate into your current skills.

There is an insidious torture method commonalty know as Chinese Water Torture. This is where the victim is restrained and water is dripped continuously onto their head. Drop by drop, never ending until the victim is literally driven insane. Continuous or even intermittent pain is like water torture. But imagine that you really could turn off that tap and switch it off? How dramatically would your life improve?

Please do read this next paragraph because its Phil’s pain story.

Pain and I go back a long way, bedridden at the age of ten with rheumatic fever was the start of my long relationship with chronic and acute pain. I am therefore an Expert by Experience (EE) which includes, two bouts of rheumatic fever, ankylosing spondylitis which is an autoimmune disease, to serious broken neck episodes, hit-and-run smashed tibia and fibula resulting in compound fractures, various body parts fusing due to AS and two total hip replacements!

Chronic pain is still a part of my life but there are strategies to help, such as the careful, respectful use of humour through Provocative Coaching. Indeed, a greater understanding of the brain and immune connections and systems help physicians believe their patients when they say, laughter is truly exceptional medicine. The ghostlike concept of belief can now be grasped in concrete terms and broken down into many cells and nerve pathways through the understanding of the chemical flow. Provocative Coaching will help you laugh and let it go, hence changing your own chemical flow and altering beliefs along the way.Phil Jeremiah IV

Provocative Coaching and Pain Management 7 Key Concepts

1. During the workshop Phil will introduce new ideas around pain management, linked into the latest discoveries and breakthroughs in the field of psychoneuroimmunology.
2. Understanding the neural plasticity of pain pathways gives great leverage to the provocative coach.
3. Pain is information, when to provoke and when not to provoke, that indeed is the question! This will be answered during the workshop.
4. Tailoring the Bubble session to meet the individual needs of client’s pain types.
5. Making friends your great Vagus Nerve and how the Voo sound helps with this, this is from the real research, trust me.
6. Endogenous opiates and out to tap into them, so you become your own dope dealer which is perfectly legal!
7. Developing new metaphors to change the deeper meaning of pain signals.





I believe Provocative Coaching can help healing through changes in beliefs fueled by the atomic substance of laughter! By understanding the biological basis of the stress response and the effects on illness we can develop better coping strategies, thus empowering people to manage their pain. In the workshop we will explore, the underlying labels of pain phenomena, including Arthritis, ME, Fibromyalgia, Migraine and many different types of spinal pain sprouting from the musculoskeletal systems. My aims and objectives for the workshop is to show that minute connections can affect our broader emotional systems. Lubricating the cogs and wheels in the interlocking parts of our time defined patterns can lead to more harmoniously, functioning basis for meaningful well-being.

You punch your timecard every day with love and joy because you really don’t know when your timecard will be rejected, when your time is up and when you’ve had all your allotted heartbeats! So in the interim along the road of life, please find some meaning in yourself, you can because I know this, for I am an expert by experience.Phil Jeremiah IV





Humour Worx : Provocative Change : Workshop : Newcastle 28-30 July

Humour Worx and it all begins in the ‘Bubble of Possibility‘. Provocative Change is all about the structured and unstructured ( spontaneity ) use of irrelevance. Irrelevance has a structure so this should at least be confusing. Here we go!

Get an amazing solution oriented set of key skills to add to your tool box with Humour Worx Provocative Change.

The ‘Bubble Of Possibility’ is a metaphor, and from the outset, The Bubble creates a safe and genuinely challenging space to be prodded, poked and encouraged to explore a problem, a limitation or a thought. This is the safe space where provocative change happens. The Bubble is necessary to set the stage of what can happen. Anything, everything and all that is in between.

Phil has been coming to Newcastle to teach his Humour Worx since 2010. Phil’s work is constantly evolving and is based in solid structures that have a way of creating neuro-plastic change in the brain that is soaked in humour.

As a participant you will be learning patterns and drills ( which are easy to learn ) which culminate in a set of skills, suitably framed, that are a perfect addition to your current skills set.

Provocative Change Patterns

This is Phil’s latest work which is comprising of updated structure of Humour Worx being 20 patterns and an additional day of the advanced stuff which is rarely taught, as they say, the cutting edge. Here are some of the patterns.

  • Voice Technology
  • Don’t worry about that
  • Where there is blame there is a claim
  • Problem justification shuffle
  • Research shows

Over three days you will be internalising some 20 linguistic patterns of Provocative Change in Humour Worx BUT as seasoned practitioners know the linguistic patterns are just a part of the congruent attitude that both verbal and non-verbal excellent change workers demonstrate.

You will be developing your own personal style of expression of the Provocative Change Humour Worx system which on day three will grow into the reality you can create and project.

The three days are centered around genuine Bubble Session where you will experience Phil working 1:1 in 20 minute sessions. Did you know it takes around 20 minutes to create, that is grow and solidify new neural connections?

This is an excellent opportunity to work with and model ( in my opinion ) the best Provocative Change exponent. The workshop is also excellent value.
