Headway – laughing with people with brain injury

What a fantastic day with Headway! If there was ever a group of people who are great at laughing it is the people who find little reason in life. Working with the Headway group was rewarding in many ways and the experience of being with people who are choosing to overcome disabling events is truly inspiring.

I hope you will read the story and listen to the 2½ minute interview with Patricia O’Malley, Founder of The Regency Training Foundation, who is the initiator of the projects with Headway as well as with Young Carers in a bit to combat social exclusion and create community readiness, and one of the Headway participants who suffered multiple strokes.

Gibberish Training in St. Albans and Peterlee

 If you really want to experience unconditional communication this is certainly the place where nonsense rules!

The full day of learning the different aspects of Gibberish and why we should engage with this form of non-verbal speech teaches you how to facilitate a variety of Gibberish and improvisation techniques.

However, it also teachers you how you can adopt this way of communicating into your personal and professional life, thus avoiding or diminishing conflicts and disagreements at home as well as in the workplace.

“When I get angry now, I talk in gibberish and it makes me feel better”
Young Carer, 10 years

Laughter Training for Life Coaches and Therapists

As a Holistic Therapist, Life Coach or other Therapist typically working on one-on-one basis you may not wish to run group laughter sessions or facilitate laughter workshops for big organisations.

Adding Laughter Yoga and Laughter Therapy to your existing qualifications is now available with this 2-day training.

During the two days you will learn the background of Laughter Yoga as well as variations of therapeutic laughter. Furthermore, we will go into detail about the One-On-One Laughter Coaching programme and at the end of the two days you will be qualified and feel equipped to offer Laughter Coaching to your clients.

Full details are available on UnitedMind’s website and booking in the UnitedMind Online Shop.

Laughter Training – transforming your life!

The two day Laughter Yoga Leader Training has a defined structure to it in order to teach participants and enable them to run Laughter Clubs, Laughter Workshops and Laughter Alone sessions – or simply access laughter more freely in own life.

In two days there is a limit to how much it is possible to deriviate from the original material.

However, there is a wealth of opportunity for additional learning when venturing onto the five day Laughter Yoga Teacher Training, extending your perception of Laughter Yoga and discovering what the true inner spirit of laughter entails.

If you are looking for a truly inspirational and potentially life changing experience for yourself, your friends, your family or your team at work, then the Laughter Yoga Training may be just what you would benefit from. Laughter Yoga Training is where positive transformation and life changes happen!

Laughter does not make challenges evaporate, however, knowing the techniques, when and how to use them enables you to cope with life and experience greate resilience.

There are many opportunities to learn Laughter Yoga both on the Certified Laughter Yoga Leader Training, Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher Training as well as on the vast number of excellent workshops such as Breathing Business, Laughter Alone, Laughter Coaching and many more.

Most trainings and workshops are ideal to bring into workplaces for teams and management groups, as well as for individuals.
