Additional life optimizations that we provide psychological intervention for:

The exposure therapy that ShiftGrit uses called reconditioning via Exposure & Integration (REI) (more commonly referred to as Reprocessing) is an empirically supported therapy for addressing the emotional and psychological suffering that might result from a distressing or traumatic life incident or experience.

With reconditioning, the incident may be desensitized and processed again to diminish its unpleasantness and severity. It operates similarly to how the brain naturally processes information when you are sleeping during REM.

One of the beautiful things about reconditioning is that you don’t have to go into great detail about the specific issue, circumstance, or occurrence you want to deal with and move through.

What makes ShiftGrit a leader in Counselling services?

The Shift Method is a therapeutic relationship that is rooted in attachment and trauma theory. Weakened attachments in early childhood create life challenges through things like negative emotions and limiting cognition’s about ourselves.

Utilizing a thoughtfully devised method, based on classical conditioning, exposure, desensitization, attachment theory, and neuro-psychology, we extract the core of emotions, actions, and cognition’s that hinder individuals from attaining their desired life.
