This baby-step breakthrough
could be the answer.
Does this describe you? One minute you’re feeling emotionally shut down - even numb - wondering what’s it’s all about - the next, you can’t sit still and your brain won’t shut off.
Maybe you already know this . . . you're spending a lot of emotional energy just keeping yourself together when others seem at ease and free to do what they want.
You on the other hand, have to be calculating about how much you take in cause you never know when you're going to be shut down (Freeze Mode) or fretting and anxious (Crisis Mode).
Ask yourself this...
Are you so anxious and fidgety . . .
. . . you can't focus your mind?
Always squeezed for time?
. . . where EVERYTHING feels URGENT
(even when it's not)
Do you catch yourself starring off into space cause . . . you're so checked out?
If you said "YES" to any of these questions then chances are your nervous system isn't working as it should.
That's right . . . I said your "nervous system". You see, the nervous system is responsible for the 'up-again-down-again', crisis-freeze mode cycling.
In fact, it's the main reason you shut down emotionally.
When the nervous system isn't working as it should, it puts all its energy into survival. That means there's nothing much left to handle everyday emotions.
And that's why you feel like you don't have any control over your emotions. You end up . . .
I struggled with this too . . . in reality your thoughts, emotions and behaviours are being controlled by a nervous system that has its own agenda and purpose.
And I know this sounds clichéd but this state of affairs isn't your fault. Old programming, negative emotional scripts, and trauma are blocking your way.
And the solution?
It begins with one little known fact. Most people believe that the nervous system is set in stone. You're born with it and you got what you got. End of story.
Here's what years of neuroscience research and clinical practice has revealed:
The nervous system can be changed at its source.
How is it done?
Well, let's start with the right tools. Yeah, it's as simple as that.
Here's an invitation for you.
If I told you it was possible that with a short daily practice you could systematically extend those moments of clarity and calm and gradually come home to “you”?
And if I could point to others who changed the direction of their lives using this simple yet profound process, would you be interested?

The Brain Coaching Program (BCP) is a step-by-step, therapist-designed self-help guide to conquering the intense feelings of anxiety, fear and sadness.
It's a comprehensive collection of videos, podcasts, cheat sheats and articles delivered online through a private, 24/7 interactive Membership website.
"The BCP is helping me understand my core self in a way never before explored and is giving me tools to move through feelings & experiences I have always thought were in control of me, triggering panic and fear that would last for days... brain based and scientific."
The BCP is based on over three decades of brain research in the fields of neurobiology, developmental psychology, evolutionary biology, neurochemistry and trauma research, to name just a few.
1. Attachment theory (Bowlby & Ainsworth),
2. Polyvagal theory and the social engagement system (Porges),
3. 'Present moment' in therapy (Stern),
4. Personality development and brain plasticity (Grigsby),
5. Biology of emotion (Ledoux),
6. Affect and self-regulation theory (Schore).

Up to now, we've been taught to “think through” our feelings and try to be a better person by reflecting on our behaviour. As “sensible” as it sounds, this method may work for some, but for many it’s a tedious, frustrating and ultimately unsuccessful way to change core emotions.
It’s actually far more effective to change emotions at their source by working with the body, as extensive brain research and clinical practice results have shown.
When you “feel” something, you’re connecting with something happening in your body. You cannot “feel” an emotion without it manifesting physically in your body.
Why is this important?
Well, the connecting pathways that carry the “emotional” information to the brain from the body far outnumber the pathways going the other way. What this means is that you have only a 15-20% chance of “thinking” your way out of a strong emotion.
In other words, trying to “talk yourself” out of feeling a certain way is tough when you have only 15-20% control. So that tightness in your chest, the knot in your tummy, or the tension in your neck….well it’s probably going to stay until it’s ready to go.
But when you work the other way around you can rapidly change any emotion by working directly with the body. Your chances at making a fundamental change (or a 'corrective emotional experience') are much better when you’re working with more than 80% of the pathways associated with whatever emotion you’re working with.
Working with body sensations directly impacts the lower brain… which not only regulates blood pressure and heart rate, but also grounds your sense of well being through anxiety relief, lighter moods and even joy!
Using body-based self-regulating techniques, you can “re-set" the brain to make your nervous system automatically self-regulating - that is, it’ll take care of that knot in your tummy without you having to do anything!
So you’re less stressed, less anxious and emotionally balanced in general.
Once you understand the bodymindfulness principles and apply the step-by-step techniques, you'll be making changes to your emotions naturally - using the brain's inborn power of self-repair and self-regulation.
You'll feel your self-confidence increase day by day as you experience your body as a safe place to land and a source of abundance.
Now of course the BCP won't magically change your life overnight. No program can do that. Not even the best therapists can.
However, it's been my experience, both professionally as a therapist and as a client, that this Program is the fastest way for making lasting emotional changes by far.
I've used the principles and exercises it contains to get extraordinary results with my clients for many years, and I've put it all into a format that I guarantee will help you too.
I have just been doing what you said in your video. Feel anxious… so I calm my body reaction, and literally absolutely can feel the anxiety calming… dissipating. Magic Extraordinary and very WONDERFUL! Needless to say, enormous thanks to you for this and your website in general.
“… And I want you to know how much I am enjoying and learning from the Brain Coaching Program. Everyday I take time to watch or rewatch a video – and it helps me get thru my day. Your voice and face help me to remember the work I need to be doing daily. I am so thankful for you :)”
"Just love the material you are sharing. It is heaven-sent. So well organized and current. The brief learning videos are perfect, allowing time to internalize the information each day. Feel like I am in a session with you. Next best to the real thing."
Shrinklady has done an amazing job translating neuroscience research and what we know about body-centered therapies into a one of a kind program for clients and therapists alike. She makes it easy to see how to put these insights and techniques into practice. Learning these skills can help clients make the best use of their therapy. I know of no other program like it.

Dr. LaCombe has created an innovative and comprehensive program for remapping the brain and powering up treatment effectiveness. As a fellow brain-wise therapist, I can attest to the power of her BCP insights and techniques for helping folks shift out of stuck and into flow - mind, body, and spirit!
Dr. Carole Gaato, Ph.D. Registered Psychologist
Indeed, we are all hoping for healing relationships. The simplicity of the BCP is deceiving, for it is very powerful. It convinced me that emotional repair and restoration is possible, even for someone with early abandonment issues.
I would recommend The Brain Coaching Program absolutely for anyone wishing to escape unhelpful patterns of relating and gain mastery over old behaviours.
Thank you Shrinklady for spreading the message of hope!

Let me tell you why this is why I can make such an unbeatable guarantee.
Back in 2006 when I first started myShrink few people had heard of neuroplasticity and the power of the brain to re-wire itself. Even fewer had heard of bodymindfulness and self-regulation of the nervous system. Indeed, many of the ideas I share with you in this Program are still locked away behind therapist doors and complicated academic theories because the belief is that they should only be utilized by fully qualified practitioners in professional settings. They believe you’re too fragile to handle this information. Not me.
I don’t care what psychological label you’ve been given, everyone has a nervous system and everyone can use these principles to improve.
I only care about delivering high quality material that’s super relevant to you. That’s why all my products come with Lifetime Access. I want you to benefit as I refine and add to these courses because I believe in the value they hold to change your life. Folks who first purchased my program in 2010 are still visiting the BCP and benefiting from the upgrades I make - at no extra cost.
With this program you’ll have a proven system no matter what emotional challenge you face. You’ll always have a system to turn to that will serve you well. Anytime. Anywhere.

ABSOLUTELY. You’ll find these tools to be indispensable, because they work. And most of them are easy to do as well. The trick is to do them consistently - that’s why I give you lots of examples and motivational tips along the way.
Because they're still cutting edge it's going to take time before they become 'standard operating procedure', although they're being used in greater numbers by therapists. And of course, body-based therapists have been using them for over a decade.
(I happen to think they should be shared with everyone regardless of whether you’re in therapy or not. You see, these tools were traditionally taught to folks who suffered severe trauma. It’s only now people are starting to come around to the idea that everyone can benefit from them.)
