Positive Neuroplasticity  Training, developed by Dr Rick Hanson, a world leader in resilience, uses the latest developments in neuroscience and psychology to rewire and hardwire feelings such as happiness, being content and feeling connected.  In this 18 hour training you will develop many important inner strengths, including ones aimed at particular challenges you may be facing.  Alongside this, you will also learn how to transform beneficial states of mind into underlying, enduring neural structures. This is useful for every day well being as well as turbulent times.


Positive Neuroplasticity Training  is even backed by a peer reviewed scientifically researched paper showing positive outcomes in mental health.  Click here to read more ...

Positive Neuroplasticity Training is about:

  • Learning "how to" grow lasting inner resources such as confidence, happiness, grit, feeling content, safe and connected.

  • Understanding "how to" improve your mental health by learning how to take in the good and install it as an inner strength.

  • Identifying and applying these strategies to key areas of your life you want to develop.

  • Moving forward, growing resilience and healing past hurts.

The 18 hour PNT course is a combination of presentation, paired exercise and inner practices.
