Confidence in the Community

Undoubtedly one of the most rewarding programmes for people who feel isolated, stuck, lacking confidence and just don’t know where to start.

The Regency Training Foundation making the way for inclusion for everyone in the communities!

The programme explores a variety of subjects such as

  • Confidence building
  • Communication skills
  • Laughter therapy
  • Anger management
  • Stress and anxiety busting
  • Time and money management

Running over six weeks with adults who have suffered any form of brain injury or physical and sensory disabilities the programme addresses a lot of issues otherwise not dealt with by the traditional carer system.

Please feel free to contact us regarding our confidence programmes and for more information about our partnership with St. Albans based The Regency Training Foundation, on email, info@unitedmind.co.uk.

Laughing with MS Society in Wrexham

It is a pleasure and a privilege to work with MS Society.

Over the years I have been travelling up and down the country to laugh with MS Society at their events when they have invited me. Multiple Sclerosis is a heart matter and I know the impact of Laughter Yoga can have for anyone experiencing poor health and low immune system responses. If you have not read the story of The Telephone Laughter Club it is available to read on www.unitedmind.co.uk/telephonelaughterstory.php.

At the annual meeting in Wrexham in Wales people gathered in the afternoon for a laughter session and it was rather special because we were visited by a bikers’ group who travelled the country to raise money for MS. One of the bikers lived with MS but had decided it would not keep him off his motorbike. Where there is a will, there is a way!

The same with laughter… With all the benefits and knowing the outcome of a good laugh more and more people want to learn how to bring laughter into their lives on a daily basis and not just as an ‘if’ and ‘when’ someone or something makes them laugh.

The 8-week Laughter Coaching programme is ideal for individuals and teams to truly get the benefits and walk away with everything that is in it for them!

The Bushey Festival – what a great laugh!

Laughing at Bushey Festival has been an annual event since 2010 and this year was a wonderful and surprising day.

There was a wonderful mix of local folk, the Bridge Club, and the local hub working with people with learning disabilities.

No matter who you are and what your background is, there is always, always room for a bit of laughter, and if it doesn’t come naturally at first then Laughter Therapy can certainly push the chuckles on their way out in open air!

We celebrated the 30th Anniversary for Bushey Festival with fun and lots of laughter shared on a beautiful day in the Rose Garden on Bushey Highstreet.

For more information about other events and about The Rose Garden Laughter Club please get in touch on info@unitedmind.co.uk.
