Post-Traumatic Growth Workshop – Being Remarkable on Purpose : 9-10 April

Humourworx Post-Traumatic Growth Being Remarkable on Purpose

A two day weekend workshop with Phil Jeremiah IV in Newcastle upon Tyne

Post-Traumatic Growth Being Remarkable on Purpose

For connoisseurs like yourself who value experiential training that will greatly assist your creativity, resilience, anti-fragility with exceptional tools you use and can share with your clients and family.

“Your conscious and unconscious thinking defines your reaction or response to other people, circumstances, and external events.





So, is it vital to recognise and acknowledge your thoughts, worries and feelings about the world at large, because you’re thinking affects your fatigue/tiredness/energetic states.

Basically, it’s difficult to solve problems when we are in low energy states/tired. The global pandemic has affected most of us on a day-to-day basis, and maybe we need to explore what Post Traumatic Growth would look like and feel like, while still emphasising the grief many of us have experienced. The mystery is, “you can be remarkable on purpose!””

This is an experimental workshop, but it will be underpinned with the structure of Provocative Coaching in all its wonderment and daylight. As well as the existing model of Percussion – Concussion – Discussion, Phil will release a new model of, Define it – Deconstruct it – Develop it – Drive it. The challenge is to find strategies that include different modes of fun which appeal to our diverse tastes, because the humour responses are learned and are affected by our gender, age, religion, culture/media, and upbringing.

Walking on The Moon Dangerous Ideas

Psychoneuroimmunology of laughter smashing together Polyvagal theory, Amygdala Paradox into the Giant Hadron Collider of Provocative Coaching. Every description like grit or resilience is manufactured in your own chemical electrical mind body systems. You cannot do anything without thinking; you are the creator of your moods, feelings and behavioural patterns.

Your thinking defines your reaction or response to other people, circumstances and events. Your thinking affects your fatigue/tiredness states, new brain cell production and a whole array of feelgood chemicals. The autonomic nervous system sympathetic branch can be triggered for fight, flight and freeze through the Polyvagal and Amygdala systems, whether the threat is real or imagined.

However, there is an antidote, and it is already available within you. This workshop will help you generate many new ideas and add to your existing toolbox to help people.

Provocative Coaching and Pain Management

A two day workshop for people experiencing pain and for therapists who want new and additional provocative methods to really help your clients

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
