Event description

Description

What is pain? What is chronic pain? Why does it persist? How can I get better?

At the Understand Pain workshop we will answer these questions together with practicing some simple tools that you can take away and start using straight away.

What is your picture of success? What steps must I take each day?

Understand Pain (UP) is a social enterprise pursuing a purpose. Our vision is a world that understands pain, in which the needs of people are met so that we can reduce the enormous burden of suffering and cost in society. Our knowledge about pain and related areas has and is growing rapidly. UP gathers this knowledge and distills the research and science into practical tools for you to use to achieve your goals.

Co-founder of UP, Richmond Stace, uses a blend of pain science and strengths-based coaching to tap into your potential for growth. Richmond pioneered The Pain Coach Programme as a way for people to understand their pain and move on to living a fulfilling life. Whilst pain relief is always an aim, one of the most effective ways of living your best life is by building wellness. Wellness is our greatest buffer to life's challenges. When we feel well, we can face the inevitable ups and downs that life presents for us, and there are now the known skills of being well that we can all practice. This on a background of truly understanding your pain is a potent force for moving in a desirable direction.

This is your opportunity to learn how you can move on.

This workshop does not replace your existing treatment programme, instead sitting alongside what you are already doing, but very much focusing on how you can improve your life.

This event is free, however we do welcome donations if possible, so that we can build and develop our work.

One of the ways we raise awareness is the #upandrun series. Richmond is running the Brighton Marathon in April, and 2 ultra maarthons, the Isle of Wight Challenge (May) and Race To The Stones (July). You can sponsor him here.
