Recent knowledge breakthroughs in neuroscience and neurophysiology explain why stress and anxiety are increasing despite enormous developments in psychotherapy. The work of Daniel Siegel, Ernest Rossi, Stephen Porges, Aronson & Steele and Jonathan Haidt act as pieces of a puzzle that explain why therapy can fail; and how this "winner/loser world" mindset is an unseen barrier to our more natural creative, interpersonal processes. A new world view is presented that can act as a lasting, transformational brief therapy.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To list five psychotherapeutically relevant recent knowledge breakthroughs in neuroscience and neurophysiology.
  2. To describe a new brief therapy technique using four questions.

Richard Hill, MBMSc, MEd, MA's Profile

Richard Hill, MBMSc, MEd, MA Related Seminars and Products

Richard Hill has emerged from a diverse and fascinating journey to become a successful psychotherapist and an innovative speaker on the mind, brain and the human condition. From a satisfying, if not quite famous, early career in the creative arts, Richard returned to intellectual studies at 42 (1996) beginning with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in linguistics. This triggered a curiosity that led to a diploma in counselling and a new career in psychotherapy. Studying continued and, as of 2014, he has added three Masters degrees – an MA in Social Ecology; a MEd; and a Masters in Brain and Mind Sciences (MBMSc) from Sydney University. Richard is also fortunate to have been mentored by the esteemed Ernest Rossi PhD who has invited Richard into the International Psychosocial Genomics Research Team to study the impact of therapeutic practices on the genetic level.
