Rise to Resilience Retreat 2nd - 8th August 2018 Inclusions:

Are you bored of hearing yourself say "I wish I could change" or "Why do I keep doing this?". I don't know about you but I am bored of hearing this little voice inside my head say "you just can't". "Respond to Resilience" is about helping you to understand why your brain convinces you to "avoid" rather than "approach" and how you can build a brain that is ready to tackle the trials and tribulations of daily life. This program will not just educate, it will ask you to plan, act and critique. This is a workshop that will help you build a brain that is ready to "Respond to Resilience" not just think about it. If you are ready to challenge the way you see and respond to the world around you, then secure your spot and get ready to have some fun.

Going head-on into challenge and adversity is not something that your brain wants you to do. It actually wants to protect you, it wants to make sure that you stay alive and reproduce.....yep....that is your No.1 purpose apparently! So when your brain detects discomfort, stress, anxiety or fear it recognises that it needs to motivate you to avoid what you are doing and before you even realise you change your behaviour and you decide "this is just not right for me". Although this can be helpful at times, most of the time it is not and before long you realise that you are "avoiding" things more than you are trying things. Life becomes more of the same and you continue to repeat what you know, in the fear that doing things differently will bring unease, discomfort, disapproval or pain.

My passion in life is to help you to know why your brain reacts this way and what you can do to respond in a helpful way. My job as a Psychologist is to help you build a resilient brain that helps you respond to struggle and challenge with curiosity and creativity. Life is not about avoiding the bumps, curves or avalanches, it is about embracing them and knowing what you are required to do to get around, over or through them.

"Respond with Resilience" is a 12-week program that includes 6 group coaching sessions with myself. You will also receive a 12-month online module program that will enable you to review the workshop content and revise for future reference.

This program will require you to open your mind and heart, to try new things, to challenge yourself and your beliefs and to have fun in the process.

Thanking for trusting me.
