Self-Development and Neurocognitive Training: 2016-17 programs

This year I continued my exploration of processes and programs that enhance neurocognitive development and help change negative beliefs that interfere with wellness and being the best you can be. I discovered, evaluated, and can recommend the following 3 programs:

  • MyNeuroGym.com – CEO John Assaraf and his team programs on weight loss, self- development, and business and wealth development.
  • TheTappingSolution.com – Run By Nick and Jessica Ortner, very helpful for post-traumatic stress and reprocessing.
  • MaryMorrissey.com – Working to improve quality of life in general, and life coaching.
  • Neurowisdom.com– This site is run by Mark R Waldman who is an expert on neuroscience and behavioral changes.
