“The Language as Medicine course was brilliant, just brilliant!”

Dr Raj Munglani, Consultant in Pain Medicine

“Creating a positive environment for health, recovery and performance is an important priority for the British Athletics medical team. We have been delighted to discuss and develop our skills in this area with the expertise of Phil and his team and look forward to further workshops in the future.”

“It is a very practical way of learning how to change/improve practice to positively impact patients for long term success.”

Clinical Nurse Specialist

“Really useful framework for discussions and interactions with patients.” 

Louise Jeynes, Consultant in Pain Medicine

“Enlightening material which I will endeavour to use in my daily practice.  I will continue to develop the language skills you have demonstrated.”

Clinical Nurse Specialist for pain service

“Of course I decided to change my use of words, following the fantastic training day with you…Things became ‘exciting’, situations were ‘interesting’ and whenever I was sure that I could help I told the patient so, with great reassurance and joy in my voice. I did not ‘exaggerate’, I just expressed that I knew that I could help and that I wanted to help, and I strictly avoided one of my usual welcoming phrases ‘so, what’s the problem?’ and used ‘what can I do for you?’ or ‘how can I help you?’ instead. I ended my consultations with ‘I know you will feel better’ and ‘I am looking forward to seeing you again next time, and I know you will have improved’ – and I MEANT IT!!! Thank you for helping me on my way! Hurray to becoming the best me I can be!!! I cannot wait to learn more.

Dr Rachel Hahn, GP

“This will undoubtedly change the way I liaise with patients and will benefit patients immensely. The course was so very relevant to my day to day practice.” 

Clinical Nurse Specialist

“Words count. I will use things I have learned not only with my patients but also in my private life.” 


“It has given me the confidence to reformat my sessions with patients and has identified the negative ways I have approached patients in the past.”

Clinical Nurse Specialist

“It will lead to changes in our conversations with patients.  We will also need to review and change pain scales to a different scale – a whole new approach!!”
