Pauline Skeates

Director , Insight International

Following a childhood with multiple traumas I found myself in my twenties suffering from social phobias and debilitating anxiety. Using IFT Pauline has given me the tools to dramatically improve my life to the point where I am able to live essentially unimpeded by these difficulties that at one point emotionally crippled me.

Insight Focused Therapy Training

looking for change – rewire your brain…

Neuroplasticity or, brain plasticity refers to the extraordinary ability of the brain to modify its own structure and function following changes within the body or in the external environment. You can rewire your brain … Neurons that fire together wire together!

IFT is a mindfulness based integrative model of therapy that draws from the latest neuroscience research on neuroplasticity and interpersonal neurobiology, incorporating with it the principles of kindness, self-compassion, non-judgmental acceptance, intentional attention, self-awareness and spiritual awareness into a simple and deeply therapeutic tool for change through the re-wiring of the brain.

IFT has many applications for personal development and as a counselling modality for therapists who wish to use IFT practices to care for the psychological and physical concerns of all types of people.
