Change Your Brain, Change Your Behavior
What is Neurocounseling?

The field of counseling is rapidly evolving. One of the most important emerging trends in the field has been the integration of neuroscience into counseling practice. What does that mean for you?

It means that you can learn how to "change your brain" in order to "change your behavior." Think of it like this, I have the "instruction manual" that teaches you how to use your brain (kind of like stereo instructions). This can be really complicated to do on your own, but I simplify everything and make it super simple for you to understand!

The Power of Visualization
By thinking into the future, you create new neural sequences that allow your brain to feel like this event has already happened. This way of thinking allows you to move into the proper mindset; having a positive attitude that will trick your brain into helping you find a way to make this happen. 

The unconscious part of your mind actually makes these events happen. Since we only use 5% of our conscious mind, it’s not in your best interest to try to control this part of your mind for success. 

It’s best to learn how to control the other 95% of the mind, the unconscious part of your brain. If you work on reprogramming your current thoughts & actions, you can turbo-charge your brain for success.

What Are Limiting Beliefs & Inner Conflicts?
You’ve hit a plateau! You are spinning your wheels trying to find a solution to your problems. 

Many people are feeling like there just isn’t enough time in the day to get everything done and keep asking themselves “how will I ever finish everything I need to get done?” I help you identify what your inner conflicts and limited beliefs are.

The little voice of fear starts entering your head and self-doubt starts creeping in. You start saying things like “I’m not good enough” or “why are my friends so far ahead of me?"

Soon, you begin comparing yourself to others and doubting yourself about everything little thing.

Maybe you have let fear and anxiety infiltrate your life and overwhelm has set in and you are feeling burned out. You are starting to realize that you're taking one step forward and two steps back and getting nowhere.

The days, weeks, and months are melting away and you are getting anxious about the lack of progress that you are making. Maybe you are so overwhelmed that some days you just don’t feel like doing anything. 

You start doing "busy work" to feel important, but you are distracted and procrastinating. These feelings multiply your fear of not moving forward and the loop of doom continues. 

You need to learn to harness these feelings and use fear to fuel your success fire

You'll identify what your inner conflicts and limited beliefs are. The inner conflict is like a wall that is keeping you stuck where you are right now from where you want to be. 
 
I want you to understand that the problem isn’t that you don’t have enough time or have limited resources to move forward, or that there are other people doing what you’re trying to do already…the problem is inside of you.

You are unaware that you have a belief that isn’t congruent with your current goals and plan of action. 

On one hand, you want a larger income, but on the other hand, you feel that money is hard to make. You want to work fewer hours, but you don’t think that it’s possible. 

Until you identify your inner conflicts, that wall between what you want to do and what you are doing now, will remain up.

Together, I will teach you how to do this with ease.
What is Cognitive Priming?
The old adage “To See It Is to Believe It” is backwards.
It should be “Believe It and See It Happen!”

It’s just like an actor reading a script and getting into character. They believe that they are channeling the person with whom they are portraying. 

This belief helps us see the character on screen. For professional athletes, they use this same technique which is called “cognitive priming.” 

A diver will see the dive unfold in their mind before they even step on the platform. They will see the twists, the body posture, the execution, and the entry into the water with precision. 

They believe that they can make the dive with perfection, and then they see the results unfold as they enter the water with no splash at all.

Neuroscience shows that the brain doesn’t know the difference between the experiences you are having and what you are imagining.

You might not know how you are going to transition into your new job or how you're going to get past your challenge, but you need to believe that it is going to happen to see the results.

- Believe that you are are good person.

- Believe that you are going to live a happy life.

- Believe that you have more free time to spend    doing things you love.

- Believe that you are worth a lot more than you give yourself credit for.

- Believe that you can deepen your relationships    with friends and family.

- Believe that you can help out more in your            community and impact others.

What Are Meditation & Focus Exercises?
Neuroscience shows us that by using focus exercises, and guided meditations, you can access more of your subconscious mind. 

This helps you control your thoughts and actions.

This will help you increase your self-esteem and self-worth by engaging positive thoughts that will help you to improve your personal growth.

When you learn to focus, you will be able to relax through the rise and fall of your emotions (from fearful and angry, to happy and joyful).
When you have mindful awareness, you will be able to keep focused on your positive self-growth and become less distracted by fear and other negative thoughts that are getting in your way of living your happiest life, ever.
What is Behavior Modification?
You will learn how to alter certain behaviors that aren't serving you well in your life.  By using both positive and negative reinforcement techniques, you will learn to get rid of those pesky habits and behaviors that you don't want and learn to create new positive habits.

By using positive affirmations, while accessing a more relaxed state of mind, a person can lower their stress and anxiety levels and encourage work productivity.

By using reframing techniques, you will understand how to say "I CAN" and "I WILL" statements to self-affirm and reduce your stress levels.

We will work on all of this in our sessions and you'll have things to practice on, when you go home.  It's the best way to help you make changes.

What is Neuroplasticity?
Not that long ago, we believed that our brains couldn’t change much, after childhood. This is how the old saying “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” came to be.

Scientists believed that our brains were a fixed network, after the age of 10.  However, new advances in science prove that you “can teach an old dog new tricks” because our brains are continually changing and adjusting, throughout our lives. 

Our brains are adaptable, meaning it can be molded like plastic. Hence the term “neuroplasticity.” How does it all work?   

Think of your brain as billions of little railroad tracks and your thoughts are the train (“train of thought”).

There are different pathways that light up every time you feel, think, or do something. Some of these paths are very clear and make it easy for us to follow, daily. These paths are called your habits. The routines that you have created for yourself. The way you feel, think or do things.  

Every time you feel a particular emotion, practice a task, or think in a certain way, you are strengthening and keeping your path clear for your thought train to ride down.

Now, say you want to think about something differently, learn a new task or feel a different emotion…
 
You start creating a new path. If you keep traveling on those new tracks, your thought train begins to use this pathway more. Then, this new way of feeling, thinking, or doing becomes a habit, which turns into a new routine. 

The old path gets used less and less and weakens. This process of rewiring your brain and creating a new pathway for your train of thought to pass through is called neuroplasticity.  It's pretty simple, right?

So, as you see, the old saying "you can’t teach a new dog new tricks" is incorrect. We all have the ability to learn and change by rewiring our brains.
If you want to change a habit, you just need to think of something differently. You need to clear a new pathway for your thought train. When you do this, you have experienced neuroplasticity.

The more you rehearse your new habits, over and over again, and the more focus you put towards making the new change, you can rewire your brain and make new paths for new trains of thought.  It's that simple!

When you believe that you can remove your blocks, conquer fear, upgrade your mindset, and achieve more in life, you will see the results start to happen!  That is neurocounseling!

It's time to put your needs, first!

Start living the life you deserve to be living.
