Helping Bring Clarity to Life...
Using MYCS in therapy has been amazing! I am certified in many programs and have over 20 years of counseling experience. I have never seen anything that works as well as MYCS—or as quickly. I have used it with anxiety, depression, PTSD, and substance use issues and with all ages 6 and up. Just going over the Book (Tab one) in the binder has clients having epiphanies and seeing themselves as never before.
Once we get into the assessments, they really start to understand themselves and why they have the issues they are coming to therapy to address.
As the client and I delve deeper to find their core emotional wound, their whole life begins to come into clarity. Then when we get to the workbook amazing things happen. They find out why they have done things their whole life and what they can do to change this and become more positive and happier. This happens in only a few sessions and can pay a lifetime of benefits to the client.
Out of all the programs I have studied—and techniques I have learned— MYCS is the easiest to implement and has had the most profound effects for my clients. I love the fact that it is based in neuroscience and truly affects a change in the brain of the client in positive ways.
I tell patients if you take medication it changes your brain—but through MYCS we can make positive change without medication. This gets their attention and they respond with excitement and enthusiasm. Once they see results my clients are MYCS advocates for life!
In using MYCS with clients and in groups, I’ve discovered so many gems that, on their own, are life changing for clients. As a program, these gems have revolutionized my practice, my daily life, and even my worldview.
I have used the Managing Your Crazy integrated neuroscience techniques in therapy with anxiety, depression, PTSD, and substance use issues and with all ages 6 and up.
