By learning about this nurological process that we all go through constantly, we can begin to gain more control over the way we perceive situations, the way that we typically respond and then ultimately the quality of our day-to-day functioning.

This is a very structured therapeutic approach, designed to take you through a series of written exercises so that you really understand how your brain/body responds to triggers and how you can increase the amount of control you have over these responses.
