How long does it take?
The length of psychotherapy can range from a session to a lifetime. Meetings are usually scheduled once a week, and more or less frequently, depending on preference and necessity.
Dr. Tsaousides provides clinical consultation and supervision to healthcare professionals, on issues related to the diagnosis and treatment of brain injury, and management of associated emotional issues, such as depression and anxiety, as well as strategies for successful transitions to academic and professional settings, and increasing social participation. He also provides medico-legal consultation to clarify the nature, extent, and consequences of brain injury.
We all are hardwired for success. Ours brains are designed to set, pursue, and achieve goals. Being successful is a function of how well we use our brains. Efficient use leads to success. Inefficient use leads to brainblocks.
Brainblocks are the mental obstacles that prevent you from achieving your goals. They are the daily habits of feeling, thought, and action that keep you stuck. They are the hidden barriers to success.
In his new book Brainblocks: Overcoming the 7 Hidden Barriers to Success (Penguin, August 2015), Dr. Theo shares important insights about how our brains can promote or prevent us from reaching our goals, based on his extensive research and clinical experience.
The book is a success and productivity guide for anyone who is ready to turn intention to action. It explains how our own brains sabotage our ability to reach our goals and it provides 49 strategies to defeat the hidden barriers.
Brainblocks will transform you from dreamer to achiever.
