2. Health Coaching with Dr Arien
This course is about changing and maintaining healthy behavior. If you simply condemn unwanted behavior without acknowledging what you are getting out of it, you may not be able to give it up no matter how much harm it is causing. Throughout the course, the focus will remain on you and your decision to focus on what you want, not resisting what is, and definitely not focusing on what you don’t want! Your focus will be on finding solutions for your health challenge: e.g. stress, depression, chronic fatigue, heart, menopause and digestive problems. Reading Health & Happiness and Stress Solutions, as well as articles (e.g. Molecules of Emotion and Alchemy of Healing), will provide the background information for the work we’re about to do over the next months.
3. Stress Solutions Course
The Stress Solutions Course is aimed at groups wanting to learn how to identify and manage their stress triggers. The course is available as different options: 2 hour seminar, 3 hour workshop, 1 and 2 day Stress Course, or 1 hour per week or every 2 weeks over a period of 6 months or a 2 day retreat.
Are you working under pressure, deadlines looming, too much to do? Then now is the right time to learn about and practice stress management! Accumulated stress in your early 20’s to 30’s plays a pivotal role in health problems rearing their ugly heads in your 40’s and 50’s! Start now. Invest in your present and future health. You will notice a difference within a few weeks.
4. Mind Solutions Course
This course addresses the emotional reasons for overweight as well as food addictions. It helps you identify and deal with the deeper mental-emotional, subconscious saboteurs that thwart your best efforts at releasing weight permanently.
Do you go on diets, lose weight with extreme willpower and effort, only to pile it on again, after 3-12 months? If you’re like most people, you’re sick and tired of battling with your weight. You are hoping that THIS TIME you will FINALLY be able to drop the excess weight once and for all. It’s impossible to get rid of, or rather release, the excess weight doing the SAME THINGS you did the LAST TIME AND THE MANY TIMES BEFORE THAT – unless you do something DIFFERENT. You’re not alone!
