Mental Fitness

In 2021 I was introduced to Positive Intelligence and mental fitness training. I found it so powerful I decided to specialise.

Mental Fitness training was developed by Positive Intelligence (PQ) founder Shirzad Charmine. It uses a combination of neuroscience, positive psychology and performance science to help you build your mental ‘muscles’.

Being physically fit means you are better able to run for a bus, lift a weight or climb a hill when you need to. Being mentally fit means you can bring more wisdom, ingenuity and positive responses to every situation.

The programme works by changing the relationship between positive and negative responses in the brain. Modern living means that most of us live predominantly in our survival brains where negative emotions are generated. It’s why there is so much low-level stress and distress in our daily lives. Mental fitness training helps you build new neural pathways and activate your more positive PQ brain.

Discover mental fitness training for yourself

I deliver Positive Intelligence mental fitness training to individuals, groups and teams in organisations.

Over nine weeks participants learn how to

• Weaken their inner saboteurs
• Activate a sage response in challenging situations
• Develop their self-command muscles

The outcome is improved performance, stronger relationships, and greater wellbeing

MRI scans have shown that after 6-8 weeks of intensive training the grey matter in the PQ brain has grown whilst unhelpful elements of the Survival brain have started to atrophy.

As a result of experiencing the programme I am calmer, clearer, healthier and happier. My clients report the same. It’s a method that gives you tools for life and work long after the coaching is over.
