Laughology workshops with Stephanie Davies of Laughology Ltd

The Service Users’ Network, (SUN), is a registered Manx charity which was launched in October 2002. SUN membership is open to anyone who has suffered mental ill health or has an interest in mental health. One of SUN’s aims is, “To provide opportunities for sharing ideas, networking and stimulating debate.”

To this end SUN has organised a Laughology Workshop day to be held on 10th October, (this coincides with World Mental Health Day), at The Colonnade Suite, Villa Marina from 10am until 2.30pm.

Stephanie Davies, who will be facilitating the sessions, is a trained cognitive laughter and humour consultant. She has over eight years experience working in both private and public sector settings using humour and laughter techniques to promote health and well being, enhance creativity and enterprise, inspire teams to achieve and tackle emotional intelligence head on.

Laughology is a unique concept that draws upon the thought process of humour, allowing individuals and organisations to look at challenges in a new light using cognitive humour processing to move forward and gain control in difficult times, enhancing emotional intelligence and well being and improving performance.

On leaving Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts in 2002 Stephanie began performing stand-up comedy, firing her fascination with the power of laughter and humour. After attending Dr Kataria’s Laughter Leader course Stephanie was accepted as a participant in world-renowned, Dr Patch Adam’s Health Care Intensive Training in the USA. She worked with Patch exploring the relationship between health, humour, community and the arts.

Stephanie is often booked to speak and give Laughology workshops, in Britain and overseas. She has delivered training at the famous Gesundheit Institute in Virginia, to medical students in Israel, and to organisations nationally and internationally.

On top of her busy training schedule, Stephanie is often asked to contribute to popular television programmes, such as Trisha, The Bank of Mum and Dad, BBC’s Heaven & Earth and ITV’s Stand-up Jenny. She is also a regular on BBC Radio.

Stephanie will be facilitating two workshops on 10th October, namely Laughology for Life-Introduction to the Laughology model for enhanced living, and secondly The Humour being. Lunch and refreshments will be provided at what SUN hopes will be a very stimulating, lively and exciting day.

Places for the day are free, so to book a place please either e-mail serviceusersnetwork@manx.net or ring (07624) 457756 by 26th September to avoid disappointment.
