Heidi's own grief and care giver stress propelled her into studying further and she now uses a lens of Relational Neuroscience in her work. Heidi describes this as connecting brain to brain and integration being the quality of that connection. She shares her passion of how these principles can help people to cope and thrive in their lives. We explore the nature of stress from a more scientific perspective in layman’s terms yet with incredible practical application to letting go of stress in our lives and choosing to create the life you want.

Creating the life you want
“Relational Neuroscience helped me understand the grief and stress that I was experiencing at that time and helped me overcome my grief”
“Emotional intelligence is really about learning how to recognise when you have that stress response, when you’re having a really strong emotion… and learning how to calm that down through self-regulation”
“If we can train ourselves to become aware of our bodies, we can catch these subtle signs and change before our stress response goes super out of control”
“Over time something that’s not really that stressful can build… it’s not that something happens one time it’s usually the 86th time that it happens that people just blow up and goes out of control”
“Meditation strengthens 8 of the 9 functions of the pre-frontal cortex”
“Cultivate securely attached relationships. That improves all 9 functions of the pre-frontal cortex”
“Having a good functioning brain, a clear mind and good relationships are important to have good mental health and to reduce stress”
“If you meditate every day it is amazing with the neuroplasticity and neurogenesis, it rewires your brain. It will change your experience of reality”
