Interpersonal Neurobiology

Interpersonal Neurobiology encompasses the science of consciousness and neuroscience findings that support the fact that we can actively enable ourselves to respond differently to our problems and become better problem solvers and therefore happier and healthier as a result.


You may have heard of the Flight – Fight – Freeze responses. If you haven’t – they are the survival responses of our autonomic nervous system. Our survival responses run outside of our voluntary control and have an inbuilt bias towards danger. This means that when they have been triggered they will not allow-in any cues of safety that may be present in the environment. To do so would reduce the likelihood of our survival.
