Working with The Regency Training Foundation

UnitedMind teamed up with a local social enterprise, The Regency Training Foundation, in 2009 in a bid to combat social exclusion and loneliness in the communities in Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.

After a two-year break from delivering training programmes The Regency Training Foundation has returned with a strong programme and a unique team to deliver the training.

The Regency Training Foundation is kicking off 2013 working with Headway in Bedford, delivering a six week programme covering the following topics where UnitedMind will deliver Laughter Therapy as part of the training:

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

All of these elements are healthy approaches to life and coping with life. We are excited to be working with people with head or brain injury and physical and sensory disability who are recovering and require a progression route to enable them to get back in ‘the game’. Our first course starts on 5th February 2013!

To learn more about this local partnership please contact us on email, info@unitedmind.co.uk.

Laughter Yoga and Laughter Coaching Training

As a Life Coach, Therapist or Holistic Therapist or any form of therapeutic practitioner, you may not wish to run a Laughter Club, group presentations and other public events. Perhaps adding the skill of Laughter Coaching to your toolset is all you require to do and therefore the Laughter Yoga Leader Training is not your choice of training.

Good news!

Laughter Training – the choice for a great future

NHS Shropshire 2011

Entering a new year many people look to improve and change past habits and patterns of behaviour.

There is a lot to be said for adding laughter to your life because even if you are on a mission to change people around you, you will in fact experience people differently because the change is coming from you, from within.

Dr. Madan Kataria, Founder of the Laughter Yoga Movement, says, ‘When you laugh, you chance. When you change, the whole world changes’. The fact is that you soften and become more light at heart, more smiling and more easy-going. Your behaviour has an impact of everyone you come in contact with, and it ripples to the next level of people in contact with people etc.

Learning Laughter Yoga does not mean you laugh louder and all the time it means that you take responsibility for your own ways by becoming mindful, sharing and caring.

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

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