Our work underpins the Heart-Brain Connection and the Neurochemistry of Trust - LIFE BY DESIGN

Coaching and Mentoring

Holding the space for a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires you to maximize personal and professional potential.

Coaching Conversation…what’s so SPECIAL about it?
It is based on the Heart-Brain Connection, and the Neurochemistry of Trust

If a person or situation feels safe, our brain produces more Oxytocin and Dopamine, the ‘feel-good hormones.’ Our Prefrontal Cortex is activated, it is that part of our brain that gives access to Empathy, Rational Judgment, Higher-level decision-making and Innovation Capabilities.
This is a place of Trust where we open up to Curiosity and Discovery. It takes about 0.10 seconds to activate Trust

If a person or situation feels threatening (physical and emotional), our brain produces higher levels of Cortisol and Adrenaline, the ‘stress hormones’. Fear networks in our brain trigger ‘Amygdala Hijack’, causing us to fight, flight, freeze or appease.
This is a place of Distrust where we go into negative self-talk, withdrawn and shut-down. It takes 0 .07 seconds to trigger Distrust
