Breakthroughs in neuroscience and neurophysiology explain how a mindset can alter what is turned on and turned off in the brain and the body. The work of Siegel, Rossi, Bandura, Aronson & Steele and Deci & Ryan act as pieces of a puzzle that explain why therapy can be disrupted by an imposed mindset and how this “winner/loser world” mindset is an unseen barrier to our more natural, creative, interpersonal process. A new, simple brief therapy is presented for lasting, transformational change.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Explain the effect of mindset on the functioning of the brain and body.
  2. Describe the Winner/Loser World Hypothesis.

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.
