Beating the Blues during Covid19

It is such an important topic.

Helen Dugdale 0 1358

Being anxious over a change in our lives is Normal. It is called being human. It is how we let that anxiety get to us that we need to address.  A certain amount of anxiety (or stress) can be useful – it can help spur us to react, to be responsive, to adapt.  We certainly have had a lot of changes in our lives recently.

Free On-line Psychotherapy and Counselling Consultations

Helen Dugdale 0 1689

In these uncertain times, with lots of upheaval – some people maybe feeling overwhelmed and more anxious. I am offering free consultations via Skype or video conferencing, while we are all in social distancing mode. Even though face-to-face counselling is better, I would still like to offer my services to help alleviate people’s fears and anxieties, before it becomes a major health issue.

Agoraphobia

Helen Dugdale 0 1718

"extreme or irrational fear of entering open or crowded places, of leaving one's own home, or of being in places from which escape is difficult."

It occurred to me that people suffering from this condition might have trouble getting help. How do they get out of the house to find out or to seek help? The answer is, they probably don't, they are more likely to read articles online or in newspapers or magazines, or hear about what help is available through friends or family.

Ageing Well in Later Life

By Helen Dugdale - Australian Brain Coaching

Helen Dugdale 0 1557

It's important to celebrate our elders and their achievements and their value to society.  There have been lots of studies and trials on being healthy in later years, particularly emotional well-being as that has a definite impact on your physical well-being.

Yes it is possible to change your ways and improve your life by overcoming those things that are annoying you, ( I am not talking medical or physical things - I'll leave those things for the doctors and medical professionals)

YES - you can learn to overcome stresses, difficult situations, bad habits.  Scientists have done thousands of trials and brain scans, and the brain is pliable i.e. plasticity of the brain cells is real.

 

Woman of the Year a passionate advocate for youth, education

Helen Dugdale 0 0

The Narrabri SIAHTO Woman of the Year, Helen Dugdale, is a passionate advocate for young people and for education.  In those areas, and in others across the community, Mrs Dugdale has dedicated many years of voluntary commitment and enthusiasm.  Her achievements were recognised and applauded by the audience – which included her daughter Anna Dugdale – when a surprised Mrs Dugdale was announced as the 2019 Narrabri Woman of the Year at Narrabri SIAHTO’s awards night on Tuesday.   Mrs Dugdale was taken by surprise – she had been invited to the dinner as a guest speaker – with no inkling of her honour to come.  SIAHTO and family members had carefully planned to circumvent the award winner’s prior commitments to ensure she would be at the event.

Phobias Anyone?

Phobias anyone? Snakes and heights! This beauty was on our path up to the look-out. Luckily it was only a python. Tap on photo to get full picture. #phobias #snakes #heights #braincoaching

Scary Heights

Helen Dugdale 0 1924

This is the little cable car we were in, 2,000 metres above nothing.

“This is the scariest thing I have EVER done!
I couldn’t have done it without brain coaching. I would have had a heart attack or vomited or both without the brain coaching to overcome a fear of heights.

Recently I was in Switzerland and went on an unplanned trip up a mountain in a cable car.

Overcoming anxiety is possible

Helen Dugdale 0 1414

"When I first heard about Brain Coaching and what Helen does, I couldn’t wait to book in.   All my life I have struggled with anxiety, so to hear that Helen could possibly change this for me meant everything!  Helen and her amazing technique have completely changed my life for the better.   I’m a completely different person with how I see and how I react to every situation. Family and friends cannot believe all the positive changes since my first consultation.   My anxiety has completely disappeared and I strongly recommend Brain Coaching to anyone who suffers from Anxiety or other troubles they wish to overcome.   Thank you, Helen, for changing my life, you’re one in a million!!"
Kind regards,   R.S. Medical Practice Manager

Procrastination - No laughing matter

Helen Dugdale 0 1451

People often laugh about their habit of putting things off. You know the old joke - "Why do today what you can put off till tomorrow". That is okay for awhile or on minor issues, and then wham! all of a sudden you are under pressure to perform or lifestyle issues are at stake. This pressure or stress is not good for your health, amongst other negative impacts.
Of course, a little bit of pressure can be good for performance, it can motivate you to get that job done, get that essay written etc. However, when a 'little' bit of pressure becomes a 'lot', and not getting things done on time becomes a habit, that's when things will start to go downhill. You may need some intervention strategies to change these habits.

 

Inner Turmoil Can be Turned Around

Helen Dugdale 0 1343

"My experience with Helen and Australian Brain Coaching has been immensely important to my mental health.  I have to admit, I was sceptical at first as I hadn't heard about this method of brain coaching before but once Helen explained the principals and how many people had been helped to overcome such a wide range of problems, I knew I wanted to give it a go."

Presentation to Narrabri Seniors Week

Helen Dugdale 0 1294

Thank you to the Council for putting on such a wonderful event. It's important to celebrate our elders, and their achievements and their value to society. Thank you for inviting me to come along today to speak on this topic

I am excited about this topic, as I just recently studied this in my psychology course. There have been lots of studies and trials on being healthy in later years, particularly emotional well-being, as that has a definite impact on your physical well-being.

Feedback from Quit-Smoking Program

Helen Dugdale 0 1582

“Feedback from Quit-Smoking Program – Great results for the people who participated in the recent Brain Coaching Quit Smoking Program! The participants smoking habits ranged from 20 – 40 cigarettes per day, and for 30 – 45 years. We calculated that at a packet per day this habit cost about $12,000 per year! Let alone the health costs! One participant even commented about how much tax they were paying to the government.

Dealing with Difficult People

“Helen, I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for me so far. In only 2 sessions you have completely transformed my emotional reactions to 2 very influential people who were having a significantly negative impact on my life. I feel very blessed to have met you and cannot wait to continue working through other issues that are holding me back from being the best version of myself!”

A New Way of Thinking

Helen Dugdale 0 1906

Below is a testimonial from a woman who is very pleased with her new way of thinking thanks to Australian Brain Coaching.

"Just wanted to let you know that I have been putting into practice my new way of thinking, as you can imagine it does take a while to change old habits, but I do feel like I am making good progress with what we discussed and using my mantra, as we discussed. I have been enjoying my life so much more, without the pressure of my mind."

“After 40 years of smoking...”

Helen Dugdale 0 3363

Recording from Frank, who gave up smoking after 40 years of 20/day, with just one session of Brain Coaching:

When I first heard about brain coaching I was sceptical, to say the least, for a start I didn't know what brain coaching was, when it was explained to me, however, I saw in some way how it could work, when I went to a session and went through the various techniques I was amazed.

I didn't know why I needed brain coaching at all but if there was anything I would like to give away it would be smoking.  I was instructed how to achieve this. I followed those instructions and to my surprise - amazement really - they work.  I haven't smoked for.........
