Train Your Brain

A virtual bootcamp for the mind

Next dates: Proposed December 4-6th 2020 or can be flexible to suit participants

Our mind is complex, mysterious and packed with potential, but it’s easy to focus on our physical selves, with little attention to some simple ‘brain-training’ that can help us overcome blocks and challenges.

It is thought that the ‘typical’ human being repeats ninety percent of their thoughts from one day to the next, and that by the time we reach our mid thirties, our brain is wired into very repetitive patterns of thinking. If we think the same, we are inviting the same experiences into our lives, and generating familiar emotions. Repetitive habits of thinking have huge impact on our wellbeing, ability to experience new things, to be the best of ourselves and to overcome our limitations.

The virtual bootcamp for your mind will allow you to get clearer about where to focus your thoughts, how to train new habits into your brain, methods to access your powerful subconscious mind and enhance your mind agility and mental processes connected to motivation, wellbeing and performance.

Participants will be led by Paralympic handcyclist and gold medalist, Karen Darke, www.karendarke.com. Her life of challenge and adventure has given her a passion for how to break the habits of being ourselves and overcome the limitations that habitual thoughts can create. She has Diplomas, Masters and other relevant qualifications in sports psychology and hypnotherapy, but has lived the journey from low confidence to some surprising adventures around the world, along with her decade of so of experience as a Paralympic and Commonwealth Games athlete.

The price for this programme is £120.
I believe this programme has the potential to be life-changing and whilst focused towards people with an interest in sport and exercise it is relevant to anyone interested in creating effective change.

What Others Say…

Karen’s coaching is inspirational!  She helped me to realise that I could take on any challenge I wanted through her accounts of everyday people like me who had completed some amazing tasks. I found her fear and problem solving strategies particularly useful in overcoming self doubt in all areas of my life.

It’s been such a great thing to have Karen help me build new pathways, look at things in a different way and paint a new picture for how I was viewing my ability to take on the challenge of riding the Alps, but also some aspects of my life. I don’t feel as frightened by the future as I once was. I see my future as concentrating on what I can do, not on what I can’t and then adapting to my capabilities.
