Emotional Freedom Technique Certification: May 25th-26th, 2019 in St. Catharines. Limited Spots!

Learn how to use E.F.T. to provide self regulation of emotions and changes in beliefs and  perception. E.F.T. is a psychological form of acupressure proven to decrease stress levels and rewire your emotional response to a thought about the past, present or future. E.F.T. provides healing on a physical level as well as a mental, emotional and energetic level. This E.F.T. training will be consistent with the teachings of Gary Craig, the original founder of the technique.  If you have a client base that you work with as a Social Worker, Therapist or Coach and you would like to add E.F.T. as one of the modalities that you offer, then this certification is right for you!

Free Your Mind

image2

Have you tried to break through or change limiting beliefs about what is possible for you?  Is there a lingering fear or anxiety that is somehow to difficult to shake yet you know, on some level, that it’s holding you back from accomplishing more?  This is an opportunity to expand your mind to new possibilities and learn a simple yet very powerful technique that can eliminate negative or limiting beliefs permanently!  Be prepared to learn about the many layers that are connected to our limiting beliefs and how your subconscious mind is really the one running the show.  We will learn how to erase those negative beliefs based in the subconscious and replace them using a technique that anyone can learn.  This technique, known as “Emotional Freedom Technique” comes from the ancient wisdom of acupressure and has been providing thousands of people with true freedom.  Are you ready to realize your unlimited potential?  Contact Carol to book.  

Change Your Brain

 So you’ve tried to change an old habit or behaviour….once again…and it’s not working.  Why does change seem so uncomfortable and challenging?  In this workshop you will have an opportunity to learn how our routine behaviours are really just  neural pathways in our brains that are strongly wired together.  However, science has recently shown that it 100% possible to change the wiring of the neural pathways in your brain and hence change any behaviour. So, get ready to get out your wire clippers and stop firing neural pathways that are connected to unwanted behaviours and learn how to rewire your brain.  This is your chance to learn how to create new neural pathways that will elicit new behaviours allowing you to reach the goals that you desire.  Techniques taught to rewire your brain include the “stages of change” and mental rehearsal.  Contact Carol to book. 

No More Negative Thinking

Do you find that you’re constantly happy and content during the day at work? If not, would you like to be? We will begin to understand the connection between thoughts, feelings and behaviors and learn how negative thought patterns can have a major effect on our everyday life. As we explore ways to begin monitoring our thoughts, we’ll define 10 very common patterns of negative thinking, also known as cognitive distortions. Some of the negative thinking patterns include our “Mental Filter” and “Should Statements”. Once we begin to identify and eliminate these patterns of negative and distorted thinking, we can begin to turn our work environment, our life and our reality into an amazing, positive place instead. Contact Carol to book. 

Ready...Set...Relax

 Do you feel like your mind is constantly racing while at work or when you try to sleep at night?  Do you ever feel overwhelmed by all the things that you can’t stop thinking about?  Mindfulness meditation is the practice of stilling or relaxing the mind and focusing our concentration in order to increase awareness of the present moment, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and enhance personal growth.  By beginning to slow our brainwaves through meditation, we can slso change how we think, feel and act in our daily lives.  With this workshop, we can enjoy the relaxing experience of training the mind and letting go of thought in order to free ourselves from stress and worry in the workplace.  Remember that learning to relax your mind is a skill that can be developed by anyone when given the proper tools and with practice.  Carol will provide the tool of meditation in this session!

Breathing Techniques 101

Just take a deep breath and relax!  How many times have we heard this from a friend when you are feeling stressed or overwhelmed by some life event or crisis at work?  In this workshop you will have a chance to learn about the difference between stressful breathing and deep relaxed breathing.  When we’re stressed we turn on our “sympathetic nervous system”  and tend to breathe quick and shallow.  In turn, we are not providing the body with the amount of oxygen that it needs.  The long term ramifications of this are chronic fatique, low level anxiety and mental haziness.  After this workshop you will have the knowledge and skills to instead turn on your “relaxation response” in the body as well as a number of breathing techniques that you can practice on your own.  This is a chance to experience mental clarity, increased energy and harmony in your body on a daily basis. 

Yoga Stretch at Your Desk

image7

Too busy to exercise or stretch but know that your body needs to and so does your posture?  Ever go home after a long day at work with tension in your neck, shoulders or back?  This session will provide an easy-to-learn series of yoga stretches that you can do right at your desk when it’s convenient for you.  The stretches provided are part of the ancient yoga tradition and can allow you to release tension and discomfort that we often feel after sitting at our desk for long periods of time.  This combination of yoga stretches can increase blood flow to the muscles, improve spine flexibility and move stagnant negative energy in the body.  Handouts of the yoga sequence are provided so you can practice daily on your own or with co-workers. Learn to get moving and get relief with this workshop!  Just remember to wear comfortable clothing!  Contact Carol to book.
