This 90 minute individual consultation will
Until a few years ago we thought the brain was believed to be a fixed organ with little or no possibility of it being modified or changed. This led most people to believe that mental (cognitive) decline was an inevitable part of ageing. However, research has shown that our brains are dynamic organs with the ability to adapt and change as we go through life, even into our 90s! This is known as ‘brain plasticity’ and means that, instead of expecting our mental abilities to decline as we age, we can keep our brains developing by a lifestyle which allows it to function to its optimum potential at every stage of life. In other words, If you use it you don’t have to lose it!

-staying healthy with appropriate exercise and dietary choices
-staying connected through your social networks
-keeping stimulated with progressive new learning
-looking after your sleep patterns and stress levels as both of these are known to have negative impacts on your brain

Our team can deliver a variety of workshops that cover:
