HEALTH & WELL-BEING
Anyone can experience a ‘shift’ in their mental wellbeing. Your overall health is a priority to excel in the pursuit of high performance. I use an holistic approach, integrating Neuroscience and Body-based therapies. Combining bodywork with verbal therapy I will teach you inner resources and techniques to manage stressful life events.
And gain emotional space for the energy to go when released.- Being full of tension and stress does not allow space for emotions to move freely.
By harnessing the power of Neuroplasticity, I will help you think more clearly, learn more easily, develop greater focus, be in the moment and manage reactive emotions. Neuroplasticity is the science behind growth mindset.
Maintaining a positive attitude.
Positive mental imagery.
Manage anxiety effectively.
Manage emotions effectively.
These mental habits and behaviours aren’t just for Elite athletes.
Each of them can used by anyone looking to run a faster mile, play a better game or just live a better life.
Changes to what your ‘normal’ is, can have unanticipated effects on how you function, in your personally and professionally.
Most common life events and experiences which can affect the equilibrium are:
Illness or injury
Separation or divorce
Starting a family
Identity / gender
There is a normal emotional reaction to being injured.
These emotional responses include:
If these emotions are suppressed or become unmanageable, the healing process Psychologically and Physically will take longer.
INJURY PROTECTION RECONNECTION
When physical trauma occurs, such as injury, our bodies activate a protective mechanism.
Whenever we store trauma in our tissue, our brain disconnects from that part of the body to block the experience, preventing the recall of the traumatic memory. An area of our body that our brain is disconnected from will take longer to heal itself.
Incorporating the type of Mind | Body therapy I offer, along with physiotherapy, strength | conditioning and nutrition, will optimize the recovery time.
As coach, captain or manager you will know that clear communication, collaboration, and rapport are paramount to building a winning team.
I would add to that, each team member having emotional self-awareness and the knowledge of how to process their emotions affectively.
Research shows that our own state of mind affects others up to three degrees.
Like the common cold, emotions spread through groups and create a ripple effect.
Because mood is contagious, helping teams and individuals to become emotionally self-aware, in turn builds camaraderie. This level of rapport in a group really makes a difference to its success.
