A Change of Name…

I am happy to announce that my groups for people living with chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and chronic illness have a new name: 

Stop Your Pain! Groups: Learn Powerful Tools that Work

These groups were formerly called “A Change of Mind: Neuroplastic Tools for Healing,” to highlight the importance of using neuroplasticity (the way the brain changes itself) to decrease symptoms. The impetus for the name change is to make it easier for people living with physical and emotional pain to find us. We all want to stop our pain, we all want to feel powerful again, and above all we want it to work.  

Changing the name of the groups reminds me that the nature of life is change, that change is inevitable, that change is the most constant experience that we all share. The brain itself changes constantly throughout our entire lives, and does so according to specific principles of how that change occurs. The neuroplastic method taught in the groups helps us to direct the change we want to see in our own brains: a decrease in our symptoms.

See these other blog articles to find out more about the neuroplastic method:
