An opportunity to explore and set free your imagination, hone your listening skills, turn problems on their heads and renew your empathic energy!

Why clowning?
If loving what you do is the secret of every day’s success how do you keep it up week after week in the same job with increasing pressure and constraints and apparently waning energy? The clown knows that the very conditions that make you feel so vulnerable contain within them new ideas and perspectives to address your needs. The clown never tires of a challenge, really picks up in a crisis and loves to play when the going gets tough. Could this be the time to recover your joie de vivre and bring some latent talent into play? You may be surprised by what happens to your life when you share more of the lead with your clown.

What others say
“You are valued and encouraged in a positive way.”
“This was a very basic introduction to the art of clowning or "play". It was simple and a taster, but thoughtfully, professionally and insightfully done.”
“You find alternative ways of engaging with others, letting go of preconceptions.”
“Learned that less is more , having to let some thoughts go to let new one’s in, being still, having no preconceived plan allows one to react directly to the situation.”

Dr. David Wheeler is a GP and trains doctors in consultation skills at the Greenwich VTS in southeast London. He is currently training to facilitate with Nose to Nose.
