We are so excited to bring you the Amazing Brains Podcast– full of information and interviews about how to live your best life and the science behind our work.
In this episode, Micah sits down with Noel Ford, CEO of Versus, a mobile, dry sensor EEG headset system. Noel is also a consultant at Tailored Intentions, which is an opportunity for her to expand how she helps people. In the show they talk about how the Versus mobile EEG system uses principles of neuroscience to help the user’s brain learn new skills. They cover many other topics on Neurofeedback, building awareness, healthy choices and more.
In Noel’s “day job” she gets to lead a company that is trying to bring the power of the brain to people everywhere (getversus.com). As if that was fun enough, she also helps people through traditional neurofeedback and biofeedback at SCNM (scnm.edu). She supports the development of her field by working with students/professionals seeking mentorship for certification with BCIA (bcia.org). She believes in the power of education and the use of physiological measurement to enhance people’s lives. This past year, her friends and colleagues Dan and Pam Williams gave her an amazing opportunity: a formal way to help more, more quickly through health coaching. She can now reach way more people than she could in a clinic alone and results happen fast, so client motivation stays high! Compliance is the number one challenge for any intervention (pharmaceuticals, behavior modification, cognitive approaches, etc…). Noel is a huge advocate of mindfulness and Motivational Interviewing style of communication. She has always believed that everyone has a story, everyone has their own challenges and ambitions. This is what drew her to psychology. Health coaching is an amazing opportunity to both listen and actively help people.
