An Introductory Workshop

This workshop will give you an understanding of the plastic nature of our brains, and how you, as a therapist, coach or counsellor can tap into this nature both directly and indirectly. In understanding the basic concepts of neuroplasticity, you will learn how to craft your interactions, teachings, and exercises in a client-centric manner, to guide your patients and clients to create the kind of change in their world they have come to you to achieve. Tapping into our neuroplastic abilities is the key in helping others overcome depression, anxiety and addictions. We will talk about all three of these challenges and how to add to, or modify current treatments for best practices and positive practical outcomes.
