Learn to manage your mind & your emotions with biofeedback

Glyn Blackett □ Stress Resilience Coach □ 01904 435267

Do you feel like your life or your career is on hold because of stress or anxiety?

I can teach you how to manage stress effectively so you can be at your best in work, then relax and enjoy the life you want.

Stress management needs to be a personalized & strategic project: we start by defining the skills and resources you need to achieve success. Calm, clear focus, emotional resilience and emotional intelligence are all skills that can be trained and developed.

My approach to stress management is based on applying cutting-edge, science- & technology-based tools including biofeedback and neurofeedback to building the skill-set of stress resilience.

How Mind-Body Resilience Training Works

How we think, feel and act is reflected in our body physiology - and vice versa. Stress resilience is the ability to quickly and easily recover from (but not avoid!) body changes associated with stress and anxiety. The foundation of resilience is a set of mind-body skills:

  • Awareness of mind-body processes and how they operate
  • Ability to guide your body physiology towards more resourceful states
  • Avoiding the trap of inappropriate and unhelpful efforts to control stress that actually make things worse.

Biofeedback works by measuring stress-related changes in real time, creating a basis for learning. In combination with mindfulness, it's an ideal tool for training and developing the stress resilience skill-set.

Who Mind-Body Resilience Training Helps

I work with anyone who wants to feel more in control of their mind (thoughts, emotions, focus etc.) or who wants their brain to perform better.

Typical client issues are:

  • Anxiety & panic
  • Anger, irritability & emotional instability
  • Fatigue, low motivation & low mood
  • Brain fog - poor focus & concentration
  • Stress-related health problems e.g. IBS, headaches, insomnia.

Biofeedback isn't a magic bullet that will make these problems go away - rather it's a tool for learning how to handle them better.

Introducing the Mind-Body Resilience Training Programme

I developed the Mind-Body Resilience Home Training Programme to make biofeedback both accessible & effective for people working with stress & anxiety across the UK. The programme consists of:

  • Rental of sophisticated biofeedback devices for home use.
  • An online video-based course, designed to give you the key information, ideas and practices to make working with biofeedback a success, and based on learning the skills of optimal breathing
  • Coaching: one to one time to make sure the process addresses your individual issues - either in person in my office in York (where possible) or by telephone or skype.

Optimal Breathing & Why It Matters For Stress Management

Breathing both reflects and is reflected in our emotional state. Dysregulated breathing, or more specifically over-breathing, is both common and largely unrecognized in stress cases, yet it causes significant impairment of brain performance.

Most of my clients think they don't over-breathe until we actually measure it.

That's why optimal breathing training with biofeedback is at the heart of the Mind-Body Resilience Programme - it's a foundational skill for building emotional resilience and optimal performance.

About Glyn Blackett, Mind-Body Resilience Coach

As a student (of Natural Sciences at Cambridge University) I suffered with social anxiety. I learned mindfulness meditation but found my mind highly distractable. About ten years on, I knew mindfulness wasn't really working for me, so I began to investigate how science and technology could help me. That's when I first encountered biofeedback and neurofeedback.

Biofeedback helped me to calm my agitated mind, and sharpen my focus and clarity. I learned to let go of negative emotions and create the basis for positivity to arise. I was so impressed I decided to make a career of biofeedback, and it's been my passion ever since. My aim is to make high quality biofeedback available to as many people as possible, to help them overcome problems such as anxiety, stress, low mood and brain fog.

Biofeedback & Neurofeedback Software

On a personal level my interest in biofeedback has always been in supporting my mindfulness meditation practice. Not finding any existing products that met my needs, I developed my own software for biofeedback & neurofeedback. More than ten years later the result is a product that I use in both my professional coaching practice, and at home personally. The software, "Mind-Body Training Tools", is also used by my clients following the Mind-Body Resilience Training programme, and also by other professional biofeedback and neurofeedback practitioners around the world.

The software has modules for different biofeedback & neurofeedback parameters including:

  • HRV (or heart coherence) biofeedback
  • Capnometry, for breathing biofeedback
  • EMG (muscle tension) and other peripheral biofeedback parameters
  • EEG neurofeedback - including an easy-to-use 1-4 channel assessment tool
  • HEG neurofeedback
