Hmm…until recently I have not heard of psychoneurology and I have since found that it is fairly NEW so much so that you would not find in any dictionary nor in Wikipedia.
I met a lady while offering my service to crew at one of T.Harv Eker’s “Train the Trainer” 5-day seminars last week. I was totally amazed by her enthusiasm in attending the seminar. She told us how she made an on-the-spot decision to come once she learned of the seminar – she dropped all activities, rushed home, grabbed her luggage, bought a ticket, jumped into the plane and off she went all in under 2 days. She could not wait for the training to come to her in a few months in the UK. I love her energy.
We exchanged cards and on her card, it says that she is a Coaching Psychoneurologist. What’s that, I asked but I didn’t get to hear her reply. It was a rather rush meeting so I decided to do a little digging.
If you have been following some of my articles you would know I am very interested in neuroscience, spirituality, happiness and such. This new terminology really pricks my curosity and until I found out what that is, it would bother me. What I found is, it is akin to a fusion of science and spirituality.
Psychoneurology is the study of the interactions between the brain and the nervous system and by applying this understanding as a new approach to wellness it is said that it is possible to do it without using drugs. It is a drug-free alternative to traditional psychiatric and psychological approaches.
The study may be new and yet it is not as it combines the latest technology in science with ancient wisdom. It is about working on your inner self, deciding and making choices of the changes you want. It is about integrating the power of the mind, body and soul – at least that is what I understand it to be.
The study of psychoneurology is offered by Barron University, founded by Dr. Colbey Forman.
This is very much like what a coach does – helping people understand where they are coming from, recognizing the unconscious actions we carry out are based on effects of past experiences that may no longer hold true, and that we could consciously choose our actions to reflect what we want here and now to become what we want to be tomorrow.
Aligning coaching with psychoneurology creates a powerful combination in filling the gaps of a counsellor and psychologist or even psychiatrist.
We all have the ability to heal ourselves if we only know how. Coaching Psychoneurology may just be the thing to help us enter the journey into healing of mind, body and soul more effectively.
I hope to have a chat with my new found friend to learn more of what she does. So look out for the post.
