'' I help my client or patient to flourish by offering his passions to the world ''

Investing in one's passions is a source of happiness, self-discovery and achievement. These moments of happiness seem to reduce the worries and the stress and relativize the numerous challenges of the daily life. They often allow your client or patient to unify their strengths and to surpass themselves. Helping him to put his passions to the service of a better world can enable him to carve out a place of choice and value himself.

Stress research shows that the sense of coherence that is felt when you put a passion to good use can be a major factor of resilience in situations of great stress. What do studies tell us about this? What is the neurobiology that explains resilience and coherence? How to explain it to your client or patient to give him personal power, commitment and motivation?

How to help your client or patient better know his strengths and passions? Where to begin to help make it a path to fulfillment? How to guide him to use his passion for growth and enjoyment? How to use the tool "Healthy Brain" to follow his progress?
