What is Provocative Change Works?
PCW is a method of communication which creates the possibility for dynamic change in an accelerated and conversational manner. The practitioner provokes new ideas and feelings changing the client's previous "stuck state of thinking" to create new, long lasting and measurable possibilities.
This can be applied in a therapeutic, coaching, business or personal development context. PCW works as a problem solving process empowering the client to create their own conclusions for themselves, rather than offer solutions to the problem.

There are three key elements to PCW
- Provoking new behaviours by adopting specific stances that stimulate noticeable changes in thinking and feeling.
- Exploring the client's internal metaphorical maps to stimulate new outcomes.
- Time-framing change within real world situations. This produces an ecologically sound process for a better quality of life and improved sense of well-being.
I have found this combination to produce the fastest, most successful and lasting results when working with clients. I used the Provocative Change Works™ approach in 2006 when appearing on BBC Radio for a 6 month series of live one hour programmes where I cured phobics live on the air using these tools.
I also use this approach in my private practice and the approach is demonstrated extensively on the "Provocative Change Works™ for Phobias" DVD set, which shows me working with long standing phobics producing some really excellent results.
