Neuroscience for Coaches: Changing Habits and Brain Health
Sat 13 May 2017, 10:00 – 15:00 BST
Every coach has to face helping clients to change. If we want to change anything in our lives, our brains need to change first. Thus, it is crucial for coaches/therapists and consultants to firstly understand how human brains function, why does it resist change and what conditions are needed for the brain to create a lasting change. In this comprehensive workshop neuroscientist (PhD) and business coach Gabija Toleikyte will share most important concepts about brain functioning for coaches/consultants and therapists to be able to help their clients best.
In this workshop you will learn:
- Can human brain change?
- What conditions are needed for neuroplasticity?
- How do we form a model of the world?
- Is my reality the same as yours or different?
- How do we form identity and can we change it?
- How do we create habits and why is it so difficult to change them?
- What are the stages of creating a lasting change?
- Brain activity-based strategies to create change.
- What is needed for you and your clients to take the best care of the brain?
This workshop will be informative, practically relevant and fun. Moreover, you will receive a Certificate of Advanced Learning in Applied Neuroscience which you will be able to include in your CPD training list.

"I attended Gabi's first workshop in January and was at the point of giving up on my long term goal of becoming a freelance coach and wellbeing expert. After attending the second workshop and having a thirty-minute coaching call with G, not only is my dream now alive again, more importantly, I am making progress towards it with concrete actions. This is thanks to Gabija, whose coaching really works. Thanks Gabija for helping me to keep the dream alive and having fun with it!" - Angelina
