Why is experience so important?
Ever notice you can’t just talk yourself out of a negative mood, panic attack, or flashback. Instead the emotional brain responds to relationship, metaphor, imagery, music and activity. Because events, patterns and relationships are primarily stored in the right hemisphere of our brain, successful therapy depends greatly on our ability to create experiences that are “felt” by the right brain and then “understood” by the left.
Does it really work?
Science has demonstrated that your brain is actually programmed to heal itself, given the right circumstances. Believe it or not, you are resilient! Developments in the field of neuroplasticity have proven that through the use of properly structured experiences, your brain can be re-wired.
