My goal of this program is to teach you to understand, to know, and to care for you brain. In order for you to perform at your best and to be your best self, you must have a brain that works at it’s best.
This program to is to help you balance the function of your brain and to improve your life, since your brain and life are inseparably linked. Whether you are struggling at work, at home, in school, in relationships or within yourself, MINDtalk works hard to help you to get the best brain possible. 
The great news is the the brain is malleable and able to change. With some basic knowledge about the brain and targeted strategies you can make a good brain great. 
In order to keep our brains functional we need tune, balance, and properly nourish them to remain in excellent health. But if you don’t actively work out a plan to help it, the brain becomes significantly less active with age.
This program is a practical guide to understanding and optimising the functioning in your own brain, so you can be the best person possible. It will also teach you how to enhance the brains of your children, your family, your friends, your colleagues and those you manage.
Part 1 is a basic primer on the brain and will explain why it is essential take care and nurture the brain and how it is intimately involved in all you do. You will learn practical strategies and exercises that are based on real-life experience to learn to effectively bounce back from life’s inevitable set-backs. 
Part 2 is where you will take the knowledge of Part 1 to help to enhance the brains of those around you by learning how to communicate, to coach and to build strong relationships with the brain in mind.
It can be confidently said that most people rarely think about the day-to-day health of their own brain. People hardly ever give their own brains much thought, or considered how they work or how to keep them healthy. It is rarer still for people to actively exercise and nourish them.
There are no required classes on practical brain science for everyday living in schools and universities, yet the brain is more important than law, finance, nursing, history, geography and hundreds of other subjects. In fact, the brain is the place where all this knowledge lives.
People stress their brains by working at ever demanding and frenzied pace, living relatively sedentary lives, not getting enough sleep, holding on to grudges and resentments and the list goes on.
Without realising it, people deprive the brain of proper nutrients, invigorating exercise, fitful sleep, deep learning, and enriching social relationships.
When the brain is ineffective, over-stressed, and under performing, so are we.
By taking simple steps to balance and optimise your brain function, you will be able to enhance and take better control of your life.
My goal has been to design a practical, straight-forward program to teach you the latest neuroscience research and cognitive psychology on how to achieve the best brain function possible.
The principles and exercises in this program are based on years of learning and practical experience.
MINDtalk’s purpose to is to help people to optimise and restore the brain.

Leadership & Communication Coach
WHY WE EXIST.The reason I founded MINDtalk (MT) in 2001 was a strong desire to help people to work through their professional and private problems, while at the same time giving them the knowledge, the skills and the self-confidence to be able to manage new problems as they arise.MT believes everyone has the ability to control the brain’s over-reactive strategies to potential threats by simply understanding some of the fundamentals of how their brain works. MT believes everyone can find a sense of confidence, certainty and clarity when facing their own personal or professional storms and to effectively move forward and grow.MT believes people find clearer insight and objectivity when they have the chance to articulate their thoughts into concrete words through constructive dialogue.HOW WE DO WHAT WE DOMT helps individual and groups to achieve this by informing and educating it’s clients about the brain, and then translating that understanding into a set of simple and effective techniques and tools. MT reaches out through the traditional platforms of individual and group coaching, workshops and speaking engagements. MT also engages people through social media and blogging.WHAT ARE THE RESULTS The result of MT’s engagement and the efforts of our clients are people who are able to bounce back from life’s inevitable set-backs. Our clients are able to face their professional and private challenges and problems with more confidence, more certainty and more clarity. The confidence comes from understanding that they do not have to blindly-react to the brain’s survival strategies, but that they have a choice and can ‘tame & train’ their brain to employ more proactive and constructive strategies to deal with potential threats. The certainty comes from the confidence of knowing what they need to do in order to manage the situation. The clarity comes from engaging the part of the brain that allow us to be objective, reflective and decisive.
