Seminars and workshops are precious opportunities to bring learning to life. As you leave you feel as if your brain is firing on all cylinders. You will be tingling with ideas that you can implement immediately because you have had time to practice what you have been taught. At the end of the day it is about transforming the way you work with even you most challenging patients so that outcomes are dramatically improved for everyone involved. And that means you too!

  • Tools to help you deal with unmotivated patients

Popular Workshops


Rapport Skills for Front Desk Staff

Your Front Desk staff and the people managers of your practice. They are the first contact for every patient and the last contact before they leave your clinic. In this workshop we spend time explaining rapport and teaching them the skills to manage even the most challenging client.

Rapport Skills for Clinical Staff

Clinicians are taught how to assess and treat but there is an assumption that each individual has the skills to communicate effectively with every patient. This is a false assumption that can adversely affect the survival of the clinic.

In this workshop we cover the basics in rapport building skills to enable clinicians to establish relationships with all their clients. We also teach clinicians how to challenge difficult clients and stay in good rapport. Successful practices are built on lasting client relationships. Ensure all your staff contribute equally to the building of strong client relationships.


How to Motivate Unmotivated Clients

Every clinician will come across clients that are either unmotivated or temporarily struggling with motivation. In this extremely popular workshop we present a number of tools that can be implemented to help deal with this frustrating and all too common problem.


We offer 1-2 day seminars that cover communication skills and how they can be applied for the benefit of both the clinician and ultimately the client.

Topics that are most often covered are as follows:

  • Rapport building skills- without which everything else is more difficult
  • Understanding the world from the patient’s point of view
  • ‘limiting beliefs” and how these determine the success or failure of the recovery process
  • Fear and how to deal with it during the rehabilitation process
  • The use of Metaphor in the healing process
  • Motivational tools
  • Personal skills to help the practitioner deal with difficult situations

Seminars are always tailored to the needs and of the treating clinician to help them transform the way they work with even their most challenging clients so that the outcomes are dramatically improved for everyone involved.
