Mark Widdowson and Nicola Newton
Workshop Title :
Promoting brain health and wellbeing through nutrition and lifestyle
About the workshop :
Counselling and Psychotherapy are known to have powerful beneficial effects on the brain structure and functioning. Good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle has an effect on all aspects of the body, including the brain, and by extension, mental health and brain functioning. Research developments in neuroscience, psychology and mental health have identified numerous simple and clear, scientifically-based ways of supporting mood, cognitive functioning and mental wellbeing, many of which will be covered in this workshop
Are you looking for safe and effective ways of enhancing your mood? Are you wondering if there are simple and practical steps you can take, activities you can engage in, or adjustments you can make to your lifestyle which will contribute towards positive mental health? Are you looking for simple, safe and practice advice you can pass on to clients to support their therapy process and promote positive wellbeing?
In this workshop we will be exploring practical ways of improving brain health and well-being through nutrition and lifestyle. The workshop is open to everyone- no prior knowledge is needed.
