How Does Brain Retraining Work With Children?

At 5 years old Sarah is a bright, funny, vivacious child. Her enthusiasm did not help her focus in kindergarten so Sarah's mom wanted to help her daughter learn more about how to control her emotions and improve her ability to listen and focus at school. Using our Mindfulness Plus! Program, Sarah soon learned about how her brain works. She began taming the "wild monkey of her mind" and her focus and attention improved.

How Does Brain Retraining Work With Teens?

As teens develop their sense of Self they often withdraw from their parents.  If this is compounded by learning difficulties in school, it can feel overwhelming for them and for you. Our Mindfulness Plus!TM Program is designed to help teens is 3 ways by:

  • Giving them an expressive outlet through Art Therapy and/or writing
  • Teaching them Self-Hypnosis and Mindfulness Meditation
  • Providing them with PSTEC Tools


What is PSTEC?

PSTEC stands for "percussive suggestion technique" and was created by Tim Phizackerley from the United Kingdom. It is a hypnosis technique designed to improve emotional well-being and remove patterned and circular thinking.  This is not a meridian-based therapy, rather it is designed based on current neuroscience and the "deep learning" tenants recently discovered in the artificial intelligence community.

When Leah came to us she was suffering from depression and anxiety with some PTSD symptoms. By engaging in the Mindfulness Plus! Program, she found her voice through drawing, painting and guided imagery. Her mood lightened. 

We also supplemented this program with Holistic Education Advocacy and helped her school's team to better understand how her brain works, providing real strategies based on current neuroscience.  As she became more engaged, her mood and grades improved.
