Postgraduate Course 1:

Autonomic Nervous System Realignment Therapy (ANSR)


The Autonomic Nervous System is responsible for determining which neurochemicals and what amounts are released into our bodies; these chemicals create the physical environment our cells are formed in and live inside. This course explores the link between the way we chose to think (our perception), the neurochemicals those mental states determine and how chemical imbalances cause disease. Based on clinical evidence, ANSR investigates how and why, what we think influences our level of physical wellbeing and explains, in practical terms, how changing our thinking process will dramatically improve our physical health.

Postgraduate Course 2:

Brain Body Medicine

This course explores why people can find themselves ‘trapped’ in old belief systems, negative thinking and habitual ideas that do not contribute to living happy or healthy lives. It provides a deeper understanding of the simple and practical tools we can use to help adopt a more positive and healthier thinking process. It includes an in-depth exploration of how and why particular thinking patterns manifest into specific physical illness. Based on scientific research and humanistic psychology, this course takes the mystery out of ‘mind-body medicine’ and brings a popular theory into a new light as a comprehensive healing modality.
