 How to Build Resilience & Boost Wellbeing

Drawing on the latest research from neuroscience, medicine, cognitive behavioural and social psychology, Dr Marien will provide practical insights into how our brains really work. He will explain how we can use this knowledge to increase our self-awareness, improve our emotional regulation and become more resilient when things go wrong.

“Brian is someone I would clear my diary to make time for, his insights are of such significance. Added to this, his ability to communicate his knowledge with great humour and clarity is second to none” ~ Dan Collins
