Project Description

Get in touch with Rhianwen directly for availability, but she can generally see you by appointment at Woo on Mondays and Thursdays and some evenings.

MORE INFORMATION
  • Anxiety
  • Anger, irritability and frustrations
  • Depression
  • Negative beliefs
  • Thoughts going around and around in our head
  • Irrational fears, such as fear of public speaking or taking exams
  • Bad habits such as smoking, drinking or eating too much, or
  • Just generally not feeling ‘ourselves’.

When this happens, it can result in certain parts of the brain becoming inactive and creating neurological ‘gaps’/atrophy, which is the brain’s coping strategy.  Even when we are aware of some of the problems, we may be unable to correct them, try as we might.  This is because the problem is neurological.  Until the development of neuro-imaging, this phenomenon was not understood and the technology not available to remedy.  Even now, when neuro-imaging is possible, it is not widely accessible to many who would benefit from it.  This is where Biomagnetic Neuropsychology can help, as it is available to both scan for neurological inactivity and to stimulate any inactivity.  This stimulation leads to the creation of new neural pathways (i.e. in the brain) – a sort of ‘jump start’ for new neural pathways to develop in the brain, and thus, improved brain function.

What happens during a session?

The therapist is trained to identify neurological gaps as the first part of the process.  Once they are identified, the next stage is to stimulate those areas of the brain.  This is achieved in a non-invasive manner, with a hand-held stimulator.  This action is tailored to the individual. It is so subtle that you do not feel the stimulation being applied.  Yet, this action induces a state of neural hyperplasticity in those neurological gaps, which means that the neural pathways in the stimulated areas reach a heightened cognitive state (children are in this state naturally).   During this induced state, the brain is more capable of rational thought and understanding.  It is at this stage that coaching/re-training of the brain takes place, drawing on psychological and anthropological principles, targeted to the individual’s identified neurological gaps.  This is how new neural pathways are created to enable new, rational and positive thought processes.

How long does a session last?

About an hour.  Depending on your requirements it may be possible to book two or three hours consecutively.

How many sessions will I need?

A minimum of 3-hours is advised.  A maximum of approx. 6-hours is often sufficient.
