Frequently Asked Questions

Is this therapy?

This is not therapy. The exercises and experiential program create opportunities for reflection and deep learning. As emotions and beliefs arrive in the moment we are able to work on them directly. AIR focuses on building on strengths, leveraging growth opportunities and improving your mental fitness!

How is AIR different from other personal and corporate training programs?

We use evidence based programs, based on scientific principles that uses the latest research on resilience and neuroplasticity. In addition to this, AIR® programs are delivered by experts in health and behavioural medicine.

This means that old connections are deconstructed and new ones develop that better serve you in your quest to live a life that is more fully aligned with your principles, values and unique purpose. In short, what changes is your brain!
