“Being Positive"

Helen Dugdale 0 303

“Thank you so much for helping me and getting me back on track, no one has ever been able to help the way you have. I don’t think I would have such a positive outlook on my situation and be wanting to continue changing for the better if I didn’t have your amazing help.

Thank you Helen,

M.E. Health Practitioner, regional NSW”

Never to old to change your habits

Helen Dugdale 0 592

" My mother who is soon to turn ninety-four has struggled with poor sleep for as long as I can remember. Since receiving Helen's treatment and recommendations Mum's sleep has improved dramatically. For the first time in years, Mum is waking up feeling more refreshed after a good night's sleep and ready to take on a new day. Thank you Helen for everything you have done for my Mum!  JW"

Changing the subconscious mental blockages

Helen Dugdale 0 727

“Australian Brain Coaching is a scientifically based method for changing my subconscious mental blockages that were holding me back. Surprisingly effective for me! As I have been procrastinating about doing positive things for myself for ages, and now I am enjoying all the things that I used to put off doing. This method has also helped me improve my sleeping patterns. I feel more energised to get things done now.

“Let your happiness shine"

Helen Dugdale 0 945

The best thing about this treatment with Helen is finding the crux of the concern/issue you deal with every day, within yourself that was never any fault of yours.

Now, understanding the ‘root’ of it all is simply amazing that one is then able, with Helen’s professional help, to retrain your brain to be that real person that you want to be.

It is always within you, you just need to find it and let it SHINE and ENJOY.

Testimonial from SB, Dubbo

"I am simply loving my life now"

Testimonial - Sue C Dubbo

Helen Dugdale 0 1036

I KNOW the science works - and that is enough motivation to keep me practicing.

Sleeping better is having a profound impact on my life.  As you are aware, everything in mind & body health impacts on all the other parts too - ripples that extend and change us in subtle ways (positively and negatively - we're evolving beings).

Since I am generally sleeping better there are so many positive 'flow-on' impacts for the rest of my life..........

Two step out to support Beyond Blue

Narrabri Courier September 8 2020

Helen Dugdale 0 788

A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.

It’s a famous Chinese proverb, of course, and may have been in the minds of two walkers when they set off at dawn from Pirate Park, Narrabri West on Thursday to walk to Yarrie Lake.

The distance is about 17 kilometres, or something more than 17,000 steps, but their journey was for a good cause and they weren’t counting.

The Healing Power of Music

Helen Dugdale 0 1180

It’s no secret that music can alter our mood, whether we listen or participate. Loud and active is more uplifting; smooth and soft, more calming. As long ago as 1697, William Congreve wrote that music has the power to “soothe a savage breast, to soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak.” 
Now, research has shown us we can harness these powers to create calmness and help us heal in many ways. When we are calm we can function better, both emotionally and physiologically. This is when healing can take place.

 

Beating the Blues during Covid19

It is such an important topic.

Helen Dugdale 0 1052

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 1351

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.

"I can do it"

Helen Dugdale 0 1119

Thanks, Helen,

The session really made my mind clear and took some fear/self-doubt away. You helped to tap in an area of darkness with deep awareness which gave me an unconditional strength and self-belief of mind “I can do it” rather than “ how to avoid this situation” 

Thanks again

Agoraphobia

Helen Dugdale 0 1363

"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 1212

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.

Procrastination - No laughing matter

Helen Dugdale 0 1183

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.

Presentation to Narrabri Seniors Week

Helen Dugdale 0 1041

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.

A New Way of Thinking

Helen Dugdale 0 1646

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."
