“Another major brick in the wall towards health and harmony in me and my patients” Ann Doherty MCSP
I would recommend this course to any open minded health professional with an interest in mind-body connection. Ali and Jon (the course instructors) delivered their subject material with enthusiasm and humour, and there was lots of opportunity for practical application and discussion. I continue to integrate many of the principles I learnt on the ‘Rewriting the Pain Path’ course into my physiotherapy practice; changing people’s pain experience simply through helping them to access the energy behind their pain. How fascinating! Thank you Ali and Jon Hannah Wilde BSc (Hons), MCSP
My practice is all about high standards in anatomy, biomechanics, exercise and manual therapy, but I know full well that some patients with chronic pain do not repsond well. Ali is definitely on to something with this approach and I believe forward thinking physiotherapists will benefit greatly from hearing what she has to say.

Lecturer over the last 20 years for Clinical Focus and MACP. Private Practitioner and Owner at Physiologic for past 21 years dealing with persistent pain problems.
Founder Of Decoding Pain For many years I have been an expert in freeing people of chronic pain. One of the ways in which I do that is by releasing specific traumas and stresses in our lives which can prolong pain perception. Over the past decade I have learned the fastest and best ways to heal those traumas and stresses and to empower the subject to move forward with confidence, strength and ease to create the lives that we all truly desire. I have been able to help many clients heal depression, anxiety, grief, headaches and migraines, feminine imbalances, recovery from relationship breakups, self esteem and confidence issues, as well as physical ailments and pain, and then empower them to follow their passion in life. I utilise healing techniques that I have found to date, for a gentle, easy and effortless transformation that can allow the subject to feel pain free.

An essential one day course for physiotherapists working in this specialist field
A course aimed at providing an overview of the legal background to the law of medical or clinical negligence and as a risk management exercise for both physiotherapists working in professional sport and the club as their employer.

The law and legal issues will include; the relevant legal tests, duty of care, breach of duty and causation, the standard of proof, expert and factual evidence and how negligence claims can be successfully defended. Case examples will be used to illustrate medico legal issues such as delayed or misdiagnosis, negligent treatment and failings in care and management, which may amount to negligence.
