Sometimes when people come to therapy they state, “I don’t know where to begin. My thoughts and feelings are tangled up and I feel overwhelmed,” but begin we must…otherwise…

“Change is painful, but nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong.” Mandy Hale

We may think we want to change our life by moving house but all we are really doing is changing the view outside our window.

Change can be behavioural or transformational.

There is nothing wrong with behavioural change where we pursue more healthy lifestyles or decide to rid ourselves of toxic relationships. Those are healthy choices and produce positive spin-off effects.

Transformation, however, by comparison, comes from deep within, when an epiphany or insight occurs that shakes us to the core and helps us to see what we had never seen before. It changes the very lens through which we view life, relationships, and God. It is the positive aspect of ‘Pandora’s box’. Once it has been opened, it cannot be shut. We know what we never knew, and the truth can set us free. How can we achieve this though?

Current research shows that the practical application of neuroscience and mindfulness principles in therapy enhances positive psychological change and growth. The data is so compelling; that we can no longer ignore it.

Insight Focused NeuroTherapy designed by thought leader and international speaker, Pauline Skeates, integrates findings from various sources of research – neuroscience, epigenetics, mindfulness, compassion studies, bio-cellular and longevity research and concepts from quantum and polyvagal theory. into a cohesive therapeutic process; where emergent insights cause transformation as it utilises the brain’s innate capacity for change, at a structural and functional level.
