NEUROSCIENCE IN COACHING AND MENTORING

"Dr Charlene Heyns-Nell has impacted my life in ways that this review can never truly reflect, but I will do my best.   I obtained my PhD in Linguistics in 2012 and have had many opportunities to work with a diverse cohort of students and other professionals in my field. However, after a  year long bout with post-natal depression, my interest in how the brain works and how to change my mindset to one that was healthy and beneficial was all-consuming. Nothing I had studied up until this point had prepared me for the messiness of depression.

NEUROFEEDBACK

"I was recently introduced to Neurofeedback by Dr Charlene Nel, who is currently treating our 15 year old grandson who was diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and on Ritalin for 4 years.  School was a nightmare, he was unable to concentrate, bullied, called names and numerous phone calls and disciplinaries at school, even repeated Grade 7.  After watching his life change from a happy boy to a difficult child, we started looking for alternatives to help him, from sports to music with no change. We were desperate for help and would grab any and every opportunity from, psychiatry to psychologists,  until we came across Dr Charlene Nels’ webpage.   After just 4 sessions we have seen significant improvement in his ability to focus, attitude change fr...
