Center For Brain Mental Health Service

In my review of Center For Brain Mental Health Service on Facebook, I posted:

I’m incredibly grateful to have discovered the Center for Brain, thanks to conducting internet research on PTSD in an effort to help someone I love. That led to Ted and I attending an informative seminar, where we met the wonderful Michael Cohen and his amazing staff. At that point, I felt skeptical and hopeless about our chances of restoring my fiance, whose PTSD stemmed from early childhood trauma (abuse) and military service. But after listening to Mike’s presentation, chatting with him afterwards, and seeing the remarkable changes in my guy after a few sessions, I’m a believer.

Everyone at the Center for Brain cares deeply about their patients — as evidenced by the welcoming atmosphere and the pride they take in their work. I cannot thank Michael and his staff enough for all that they have done for both of us. I am thankful to have discovered neurofeedback and the Center for Brain and highly recommend them to anyone suffering from PTSD and their caretakers.

I’m looking forward to experiencing neurofeedback myself for better creativity and productivity in my work and business. In the meantime, a heartfelt thank you to everyone there for helping someone I love dearly to reclaim his life. You are THE BEST!

Michael Cohen, Director.

In my review of The Body Keeps The Score: Mind, Brain and Body in the Transformation of Trauma, I mentioned someone had recommended the book to me. That person was Michael Cohen of The Center For Brain the evening we attended his free, informational seminar in Jupiter Florida. After his presentation, I told Mike a bit about Ted’s background of horrific child abuse and his combat experiences in the Navy. That’s when Mike recommended Dr. Bessel van der Kolk’s book and assured me that neurofeedback would work, along with the caveat that it might be a longer term process, given Ted’s history. Thankfully, Ted remained open to the help and started treatments shortly thereafter. And I went on Amazon.com to order the book at my earliest opportunity. You can read my book review here.

As noted in my Center for Brain review, I cannot recommend them highly enough — especially for people coping with PTSD and those who love and care for them. Without going into detail, it hasn’t been a straight line to transformation since he and I got back together – a la Water Signs – but I can now fully understand the real-life significance of the word “renewal” in the subtitle, because this is has truly been “a story of love and renewal.” I’ve developed more patience and compassion (definitely a good thing!) as I’ve learned what love truly means.

Once I complete some major projects currently in production, I plan to write a nonfiction sequel to Water Signs, which I hope will be helpful for everyone affected by PTSD. Aside from Center For Brain and recovery coach Don Prince (who has been an incredible source of support), the book will also include the spiritual aspect of Ted’s healing journey, thanks to Ima Sumac Watkins and DC Love, whose insights helped me more than I can ever express.

If you live in Florida –  or even outside of the state but are willing to travel to gain relief from a multitude of mental/brain issues, check out Center For Brain.com. And discover for yourself that renewal and healing are truly possible, even for the worst cases of trauma.

Book Review – Renewing Your Mind: Perspectives of a Christian Hypnotist

Check out my book review – Renewing Your Mind: Perspectives of a Christian Hypnotist by Anthony M. Davis, now live on Amazon.com. The author will be my guest on Your Book Your Brand Your Business on Monday, August 6 at 5 PM Eastern. Be sure to tune in for an informative interview:

In full disclosure, the author presented me with a review copy of his book, which I highly recommend for anyone seeking to learn the truth about hypnosis and its healing benefits. Anthony M. Davis takes a genuine, conversational approach to the topic, noting that before he understood hypnosis himself he, too, was a skeptic. He leads the reader on a journey of discovery in which he shatters the myths and shares the truth about this effective modality, backed up by real-life examples of clients who’ve experienced breakthroughs and transformed their lives. From his Christian perspective, the author explains how his practice of hypnosis aligns with Biblical principles and avoids all areas of concerns for those of the Christian faith. It’s especially heartening to learn that hypnosis can work for those suffering the consequences of early childhood trauma and all forms of abuse. As the author points out, God created us to live full, productive lives. He is certainly working diligently with the Creator to assist those who come to him for help to reclaim their emotional, mental and physical health, and I applaud him for his efforts and his patience in dealing with judgmental members of the church who simply will not see — even when he explains hypnosis in detail, with respect for their concerns. If you are open-minded and desire a solid understanding of the inner-workings of the mind and brain, and the many healing effects of hypnosis, read this book.
