3.To examine the harmonious relationship needed between sleep, circadian rhythm, nutrition, and exercise to encourage and facilitate a positive and lasting outcome for ourselves and our clients.

4. To look at what science and neuroscience is telling us about the self care connectivity between the brain, heart, ANS, PSNS, and the microbiome axis and how this interplays with our work as counsellors and psychotherapists.
