This post is provided as more detailed information to T.E.S.T.

It is underpinned with a strategy for improving and maintaining the integrity of an individuals magnetic energy fields.


If you have children or adolescents who suffer from anxiety, stress and inflammation; caused by abuse, trauma or prolonged negative influences – then Be Super Ltd, based in Rochdale, England may have the solution.

We provide what we call SCP’s –

SCHEDULED CYCLES OF POSITIVITY – they are a specific part of the VFP T.E.S.T. initiative.

By focusing on an approach involving Scheduled Cycles of Positivity it increases a students Optimal Arousal Zone; increases resilience and facilitates positive learning – AND IT CAN BE USED WITH PUPILS ON A PREVENTATIVE BASIS – We incorporate it within PACE.

PACE stands for Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy. These principles help to promote the experience of safety in your interactions with young people. Children need to feel that you have connected with the emotional part of their brain before they can engage the thoughtful, articulate, problem solving areas.

By combining SCP with PACE WITHIN T.E.S.T. a UNIQUE experience may be facilitated and written as a scheme of work. This may be adapted.and duplicates for learning at different locations.


When ALL OF THE ABOVE is combined with what we call VFP Shumma/ Madiba, then the magnetic energy field can be nurtured to be more positive and more protective. It can include adults, support staff and the environment as the children and young people. However, this post focuses on the SCP aspect of T.E.S.T.


Optimal Arousal Zone

While ‘mainstream’ solutions help some, many with adverse experiences, or conditions such as Epilepsy, ODD, ADHD, Autism or PTSD need something different than the ‘norm’ – because for the most part, the ‘norm’ simply ticks the boxes and the same problems repeat when someone flairs up.



When you experience that whatever you do doesn’t work in the medium to long term (it is partly due to the support staff who lack the experience of success with new solutions – IT IS NOT THEIR LACK OF ABILITY OR POTENTIAL – IT IS THE LACK OF INTEGRITY WITHIN THEM AND AROUND THEM – AND IT IS THE LACK OF POLARITY INTEGRATION) – it may ALSO be a lack of understanding on the part of the ‘environmental provider’ (educator / carer) in dealing with those who clearly need a NEW and “advanced therapeutic experience from someone who can deliver results” – YOU CANT BE OR DO WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW!

So, if you feel the time has come to put a solution in place that deals with ALL THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS THAT MAKE EVERYONE’S LIFE A MISERY – THEN READ ON . . .


If you support children and young people, then it is reassuring to know that in a recent video course on supporting children and young people with trauma and chronic stress, CAHMS openly advised that for more practical solutions they advise a Polvagal approach from Prof Stephen Porgess (this is exactly what Mr. P IS QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED WITH – SSP THERAPY – HOWEVER, THUS IS OFTEN NOT ENOUGH ?!

As already mentioned, the VFP experience also factors in the P.A.C.E. approach from Dan Siegal, AND utilises The Trust Technique, IFS and Emotional Coaching – it is a well thought out AND UNIQUE approach!

It supports those with:

  • Social, emotional and attachment disorders
  • Auditory hypersensitivity
  • Body disorganization
  • Nervous system dysregulation
  • Learning, cognition and attention difficulty
  • Sensory processing differences
  • Stress-related physical conditions

ASK YOURSELF – do you have to support learners on a small group or 1:1 basis; do they struggle to focus or simply refuse to do anything (even just hide away); are they sometimes just deliberately disobedient; do they run off or show challenging behaviour; do they rip up learning material and cause stress to staff and other students – are you fed up with constantly having to review safeguarding, risk assessments, EHCP’s and PEP’s – if so – STOP RELATING TO BEHAVIOUR AND START RELATING TO EMOTIONS.

Subsequently, there is a new solution you should be aware of – you need to try it  – because it works!

It is available as T.E.S.T. (Therapeutic Education with an emphasis on Safety and Trust) and it is available on a less structured basis as VFP. It focuses on emotional intelligence rather than behaviour.

VFP may be run as a therapy, however, it is really run as an ‘experience’. One of its key influencers is ‘Polyvagal Theory’; and this is applied in practice using the SSP (Safe and Sound Protocol) as a scientific framework to help change and improve how people feel, think and connect with others.

For the most extremely challenged, SSP may not be suitable because they cannot remain calm for 30mins. In such situations the polyvagal approach is still used, it is simply applied with a different approach (focusing on increasing HRV – Heart Rate Variability) involving PACE.

Higher brain functions such as learning, communication, and focus are dependent upon how well people are able to process incoming information at the sensory and emotional levels.

SSP is a therapy all on its own, however, Marcus Pearson has combined it with HRV (Heart Rate Variability) insights and technology; audio and visual affirmations and ‘togetherness tuning’ to create a combined delivery called – VFP Therapy.

Their solution re-tunes the ‘Reticular formation’ so the sub-conscious alignes with new positive affirmations of the conscious mind – wow!?

VFP Therapy has taken over 10 years to refine. It was initially developed through supporting those with challenging behaviour using sport and physical activities/fitness. This togetherness tuning was further refined using new technology to ‘tap into’ a persons sub-conscious and over time retune their auto response system to be more positive.

Some of the negative effects of Covid-19 include:

  • Struggling to deal with loss and / or feeling isolated or lonely..
  • Joint pain, loss of energy and weakness.
  • Feeling unsafe and not knowing why.
  • Confusion and frustration with not understanding what is going on.
  • A lack of trust with people, situations and places.
  • The lack of stucture and order and not knowing what to do with your time.
  • Brain fog - not being able to concentrate or think clearly.
  • Struggling to have longer conversations and discussions about positive and creative opportunities - and too much negative talk.
  • Couples and families stuggle interacting together due to a lack of personal and joint purpose in life.

The severe isolation measures imposed by governments have been traumatic to the psyche of people; to the extent, many have the fear of getting tests done and or divulging the results to authorities for fear of loss of income or further isolation. Others live every moment on the edge of media releases and feel totally reliant on vaccinations and guidance and rules on how to live.


Society has created a situation where many people have an overdependence on other people for guidance and regulations on how they live. This can be clearly seen with those people who have retired or are suddenly not working and do not know what to do with their time. For many people walking the dog, watching some form of day time TV and cooking, represent the limits of their activity. Their social interaction and discussions are based around such activity or in discussing the limitaions imposed on them and everyone else -

"very few people do something that is both creative and of benefit for themsleves and others; furthermore, they do not discuss the creative process for making this happen - they have lost (or never developed) this self-relience and love of life - they are lost within an 'auto-pilot' existence" -


When individals within a relationship or within a family, educational, work or team environment, lack any purpose in life or don't have any creative ideas to stimulate their emotions or thoughts, then they are more dependent on external forces to influence their behaviour. The majority of outside forces are negative, therfore most of the time people will be negative. Covid-19 is not the cause of this negativity - it highlights the hidden problems faced by most people and society.

This post provides a short practical instruction on how to conduct a quick coherence / QUICK CALMING/POSITIVITY PRACTICE:

The optimal times for doing this practice are:

  • first thing in the morning whilst still in bed (before getting up)
  • First thing when you get to work or school etc.
  • every 90 mins once you are active and the day has begun
  • when you get back in bed to settle for a sleep.

It is perfect when combined with other people (especially smaller groups) just before a meeting/lesson/meal.  It may even be used by a family group or a group of friends or work/school/college friends - perhaps in conjunction with an agreed 'positive statement/affirmation'.

Whilst it helps to reduce stress; with the 'the more advanced breathing progression' it is most beneficial in promoting a feeling of wellbeing and positivity; and in activating your parasympathetic nervous system (your feel good system). Once activated this may lead to positive stimulation that facilitates exceptional mental and physical performance, or, if you are relaxing, it will lower your heart rate, lower your brain frequency and promote better rest and natural sleep patterns. When a calm and positive state is maintained for longer and longer periods (with monitoring and practice) then it leads to 'flow' and extends the 'optimal arousal zone'.

Quick Coherence only takes 1 - 2 minutes (it is best done with your eyes closed):

Welcome - By following this short process you will feel calm, positive and energised. The process will work even better when you smile during the process and continue smiling after it has finished - let us begin - you may keep your eyes open or close them - do whatever helps you focus . . .

  • Focus your attention on your heart just to the left of centre in your chest. If it helps, place the fingers of your right hand over the heart so you can physically feel your heart beat - then relax.
  • As you breathe in, visualise the air going into your heart. As you visualise breathing in, count to between 4 and 7 and with each count visualise your heart expanding your belly. Continue doing this until you find your own natural timing. Once you have established your natural breathing in cycle move to step 3.
  • As you breath out and feel your belly go down, visualise either:
    • a special place that makes you feel good; or
    • visualise what you are doing that makes you feel so good;
    • and /or visualise a person or group of people that makes your love come out.
    • as you become more familiar with this, and as it becomes easier to do - focus on giving appreciation or gratitude to someone and allow your love to come out.
  • More advanced breathing progression - once you have become familiar with all of the above - then as you continue with the heart felt focus - PROLONG the breathing out stage, so it is between 3 and 5 seconds longer than your breathing in stage. Then continue this staggered breathing cycle for between 1 and 3 mins. This will physiologically activate your parasympathetic nervous system and stimulate creative and happy hormones.

Adopt quick coherence as a pattern of positive performance:

The quick coherence practice, including the more advanced breathing progression, may also be used in the build up to a high performance related activity - especially as a precursor for being in the flow zone. This is perfect for activities such as climbing or skill related performance or even high intense muscular activities such as arm wrestling, powerlifting, strongman event and surprisingly combat sports - because the more you can perceive stress as a positive opportunity, the greater you will maximise your optimal flow zone perform to your maximum potential. When stress is perceived as being negative, it increases anxiety, increases muscle tension, reduces reaction times and speed and reduces power. Negative stress leads to a quicker loss of energy and reduces mental clarity and sharpness.

Smile and be positive.

Group / team coherence:

Imagine the benefits to a team if you all acknowledged gratitude for one another prior to starting a more physical warm up or at the end of a warm just before you went out to compete. This would minimise stress and allow you to perform at even higher levels of intensity for much longer.  

When Phil Jackson began coaching the Chicago Bulls - and later the Los Angeles Lakers - he says he used the Zen philosophy of mindfulness to help build both teams.


Coherence practice is used by the NHS in Derbyshire:

Quick coherence may be used to overcome feelings of anxiety, stress and help calm you or someone else down when they are feeling their behaviour is becoming more challenging to others.

Monitoring and measuring coherence can be done using new technology and with the correct insights.

Elimination is the lowest level of consciousness and calibrates <20:

The strategy for getting yourself or someone else out of this stage is provided below:

The VFP strategy for achieving higher/more positive 'natural patterns / cycles of being' is to re-tune your mental and emotional energy fields, so they do the 'right things' on an automatic basis (using your autonomic nervous system), rather than a cognitive basis (having to think and feel if what you are doing is working).

This approach is more significant when dealing with those at the lowest levels of consciousness. Such individuals 

  • You must have natural cycles of imbalance in your life. These should be positive in maximising you as a physical being. Look at every situation as an opportunity!
  • You should maximise the functioning and capabilities of your physical body/mind.
  • You should maximise your individual creativity and find purpose in all that you do.
  • You should be your best and give yourself for the benefit of all.

When you do this you will find love will allowed to flow from you and you will attract it!

You can’t tune into Love when you have negative forces influencing you - 'love is felt through tuning in to the truth'.

Love is not felt when someone is holding you back and not caring for you as best they can.

You cannot hold other people responsible for their imperfections in respect of your relationship. You need to break negative cycles with people - this does not mean you have to stop being with them, or loving or caring for them; but it does mean you must take responsibility yourself for following more positive natural cycles. If you are not capable of allowing love to come out of yourself for your TRUE SPIRITUAL BEING then your imperfect physical being will dominate your life. You must learn to let love come out by turning negative thoughts and emotions into opportunities to help yourself and others.

You must stop feeling sorry for yourself and you must stop using others as an excuse.

You are not an 'imprisoned physical being' - you may feel like one, and may be treated like one - but you have the opportunity to change this.

When your mind thinks with moving pictures rather than thinks with words (self-talk), then the results/benefits are significantly better.

Mental imagery is a more intuitive process than an intellectual one. It allows you to influence and take control of your unconscious and subconscious; whereas self-talk and worded affirmations focus your influence within your conscious mind.

For most people the language of imagery is commonly experienced during REM sleep at night or whilst daydreaming. However, becoming aware of images whilst waking simply requires us to give it more focus than we currently do. Most people self-talk rather than self image!

Scientific research confirms the benefits of imagery for improving health:

Doctors prescribe pharmaceuticals that control the mind through the body; eg. tranquilizers, antidepressants and anaesthetics. In much the same way, we can use the mind to control the body - and imagery is far more effective at doing this than self talk. There are at least two major scientific journals devoted to imagery research; one from Marquette University (The Journal of Mental Imagery) and one from Yale University (Imagination, Cognition and Personality).

Mental imagery may be used as a process for reacting to experiences (negative or positive), however, it is more powerful when used as a way of 'creating new experiences'. After successive repetitions/cycles (21 days being a natural cycle time that changes behaviour) then the physical body attunes with the mind to make the mental imagery reality - THIS IS A PROVEN BENEFIT!

Within the VFP Digital Tuning Chart we have created audio links that explains how to use imagery to help create your own good health (this is an ongoing development).


HRV (Heart Rate Variability):

In terms of 'measuring SPIRITUAL BEING REALISATION' or 'SPIRITUAL COHERENCE' - it may be measured on a physical basis by HRV (Heart Rate Variability). However, what you have to realise is that SPIRITUAL COHERENCE extends beyond your physical being and HRV is therefore limited in its potential to measure the higher levels of consciousness. It would be reasonable to estimate that below the level of 200 HRV is low and not smooth. Peak HRV will start and continue at a level of approx 250. Above this level HRV will peak but it will not indicate your level of consciousness - this can be better estimated using the VFP Digital Tuning Chart.

The similarity between SPIRITUAL COHERENCE and HRV, is that HRV maintains 'high activity, smooth sine wave cycles' regardless of the heart rate or brain wave frequency (excitatory or inhibitory) - and SPIRITUAL COHERENCE maintains 'natural/balanced cycles of smooth waves - that can be excitatory or inhibitory' - so they are very similar to measure!

When SPIRITUAL COHERENCE occurs, on a physical basis, the heart and brain waves become more synchronised / tuned in to one another on an autonomic basis. The important aspect to measure is not whether the heart or brain frequencies are high or low - but that the 'HRV is high and smooth', thus showing a willingness and readiness for either positive/excitatory or negative/inhibitory states. Good coherence indicates a wide range of optimal flow zone frequencies (an ability to perceive stress as a positive challenge, rather than something negative to overcome).

Coherence and a good HRV are indicators of:

  • Positive relationships.
  • Creative initiatives between positive people.
  • Problem solving and group decision making.
  • Bonding and mutual support.

Quick coherence practice is only part of the VFP Tuning Protocol; By following the VFP retuning protocol you will reduce and prevent the negative effects of stress, fatigue and exhaustion, sleep disruption, anxiety and burnout - you will feel calm, positive and energised.

VFP uses the Inner Balance App in conjunction with the Bluetooth sensor from Heart Math to measure HRV. By recording your HRV before any interventions/therapy sessions, during the sessions and after the sessions we can better evaluate the impact of our VFP Protocol.
