About Mind Renew

Transformation starts with the renewing of the mind.

Renewing the mind is not always achieved by affirmative self -action, or conscious talk therapy methods when there has been trauma and trauma imprints that cause unhealthy patterns and triggers.

Traditional counselling methods, although useful in many ways, often fail to achieve outcomes for clients that have unresolved past trauma of any kind, even after many months or years, because trauma is not stored in the conscious mind and the unconscious mind will often “highjack” conscious attempts to improve oneself.

The latest neuroscience reveals an intricate relationship between the body, unconscious and conscious mind.  New ways of seeing the mind/body relationship lead to new ways of approaching healing.

Unresolved trauma is most often trapped in the body and unconscious mind and therefore needs to be resolved by modalities that speak to those areas of the mind and body to bring it back its natural healthy state.

Just as quickly as trauma set a person into a lifetime of bad programming, it can just as quickly be resolved with a newly rewired mindset.

We are wired to heal ourselves and are more empowered than we know.
