Leigh is the founder and Clinical Director of the Brain Performance Center in Dallas, TX. She is a licensed professional counselor, is board certified in biofeedback and neurofeedback, and is the author of Turn Your Brain On To Get Your Game On. Leigh is also a Certified Provider of The Listening Program.
Alex and Leigh may approach how to work with the brain in different ways, but they are complementary, and are grounded in the knowledge that our brains are very pliable and can be changed and improved using non-pharmaceutical solutions.
Their conversation was wide-ranging, touching on subjects as diverse as toilet training and peak performance, and the difference The Listening Program® (TLP) can make. One of the topics they discussed, which may be of particular interest to many of our readers is the beneficial effect that using TLP has on our autonomic nervous system.
