What is neuroplasticity? 

Neuroplasticity, or brain plasticity, is a phenomenon that was unknown to neuroscientists up until a couple of decades ago. It means the brain grows and changes throughout life, because, as neuropsychologist, Donald Hebb taught, neurons that fire together, wire together. Previously, it was thought that very little growth and change was available to adults. But now we know the brain changes itself from moment to moment and that what we choose to focus on can be used to change the brain for good. Our clients can become more resilient, happier, and more successful when they benefit from coach-assisted neuroplasticity.

What is neuroscience coaching?

Neuroscience coaches use tools, exercises, and interventions that have been identified by research into neuroscience, positive psychology and related fields, such as emotional intelligence, to help their clients achieve greater happiness, well-being, and success. They take research into neuroscience and translate it into effective tools for improving people’s lives, careers, and businesses. Read about neuroplasticity coaching on the Coaching Blog.
