Is perfect for coaching and leadership online

Why is that?

As you know, everything we do - in our personal and professional life -  is based on our conscious or subconscious decisions

more than 90% of our decisions are made by our subconscious 

(our Heart and Gut brain) 

Our wellbeing and success are dependent on whether we can be in control of our subconscious decision making process 

3 Brains Coaching provides you this control

Are you a coach, counselor or manager who wants to deliver the best to your clients or employees? 

Are you interested in insightful and beautiful personal growth?

Are you interested in learning the latest and most successful neuroscience techniques in the world? 


The 3 Brains Coach Certification training is the answer

How will this 3 Brains Coach training enable you to assist your clients and/or employees to achieve their objectives? 

Making the right decisions is aligning your logic (Head Brain) with your Heart emotions and Gut Instinct.  


Because, what is blocking long lasting results?

Decisions made by 1 or 2 Brains and not 3!

When they do not communicate with each other they stay reflexively loyal to an old behaviour or belief that could cause them pain! Even when it works against them in some context!

The art of coaching and leading people includes working with 3 different perspectives to assist your client and/or employee in establishing long-lasting wellbeing and success, instead of providing quick fixes. 

This involves answering questions such as: 

  • What is their default decision making process? 

  • What is really blocking the alignment between their 3 Brains? 

  • How do they overcome those feelings that are stopping them from doing what they know is good for them?

  • How can you assist your clients or employees to find the balance between their thoughts and feelings so that they make decisions and instil change that will last?

These questions are key, but it’s not enough to merely ask them. As many of us are not aware of what is stopping us from achieving and doing the "right" things.

Understanding and speaking the language of the Head, Heart, and Gut Brains provides critical information that will enable you to coach your clients or employees to achieve wellbeing and success.

With this knowledge, you will be able to assist your client or employee at the level where the solutions are, and bypass their critical thinking (all the "yes, but ..." excuses).

To sum up: when your client or employee do not align their 3 Brains before they make a decision, they are likely to end up making the ‘wrong’ decision and regretting it.

If they do not arrive at a decision, as they are not sure which Brain to follow, they will become stuck in procrastination, and in their feelings of stress, anxiety, sadness, depression, guilt and so on.

​3 Brains Coach training is the answer. It will help you master the techniques and attitude to assist others to overcome procrastination, stress, and ineffectual decision-making approaches, in order to boost teamwork and performance. 

You will receive invaluable insights and tools that you can apply to your coaching, leadership, managerial, therapeutic, even personal situations relevant to you.

Do you sometimes think, "Why is my client or employee not succeeding. What is keeping them stuck?"


Do you have moments when you feel that you're missing techniques and tools to help your clients or employees even more? 

Do you sometimes have clients or employees who have so many things on their list that you do not know where or how to start? 

3 Brains Coaching will provide you the techniques and mindset to deal with this

 I can honestly say that this was one of the most enjoyable, interactive and genuine training programmes that I have experienced.


The combination of your style and the subject matter created a very safe space, for me at least, and I have taken a great deal from this training.


In fact, after the first day, I recommended that my three closest colleagues (covering UK, Israel and South America) read your book and have a look at your work. 

All the very best, and I look forward to being in touch again soon.

Do we really have three Brains?

Yes. And science proves it.


Let’s be clear at this point: we are not talking in metaphors. This training is not built around some intellectual concept to help us think about how that one brain inside our skull works.

Our three Brains are real. There is a great deal of scientific research on the distinct roles, locations, and functions of the three very distinct cognitive structures we carry around in our head and body.

Before now, if Heart and Gut Brains were thought to exist at all, they were considered separate entities that existed and reacted independently and were not capable of communicating or collaborating with one another. We have come to know differently.

The Gut Brain

In the book, ‘The Second Brain’ (1998), neurobiologist Dr. Michael Gershon described that the gut contains a complex and fully functional neural network or ‘brain’.

The Gut Brain contains over 500 million neurons, sends and receives nerve signals throughout the chest/torso and innervates organs.

The priority of the Gut Brain is survival, and prompts feelings like fear, desire, disgust, and rage.

When the Gut Brain is making decisions, our communication and behavior is based on fear, anger, and lust, and it is always focused on ‘Me’.

The Heart Brain

Neuro-cardiologist Dr. J. Andrew Armour introduced the concept of a functional brain in the heart in 1991.

The heart has a complex intrinsic neural network sufficiently sophisticated to qualify as a ‘brain’. The heart’s neural network meets all the criteria specified for a brain including several types of neurons, neurotransmitters, proteins, support cells and more. Its complex and elaborate neural circuit allows the Heart Brain to function independently of the Head Brain and it can learn, remember, feel and sense.

The priority of the Heart Brain is belonging and works with emotions of love, guilt, happiness, hope, joy, shame, sorrow, hate, and sadness. Because they are all based on connecting and belonging, and are all about ‘Us’, they are essential in our relationships.

It also means this Brain can only play a part in our decision-making when we feel safe enough to let our guard down and put the Gut Brain at rest, so that we can feel and nurture attachments.



The Head Brain

The place where three parts are connected: Reptile Brain, Mammal (limbic) Brain and Primate (neocortex) Brain.

This level is solely focused on making logical decisions for the future, based on acquired (past) knowledge. It deals with intellectual feelings like understanding, anticipation, interest, surprise, and wonder. All those things can influence our decisions. 

The important thing is to understand what the three Brains are, and how they work. We can then apply the insights resulting from the research in practical ways to help us manage (and sometimes control) our own Brains and how we interact with others.

Throughout this training, we move forward from scientific fact — that the Head, Heart and Gut Brains exist — to explore the ways we can use that knowledge to improve our Brains’ health and our lives.

" Brilliant training! 

I completed the 3 Brains Coaching course with Christoffel in the spring of 2021 - it was truly transformative and provided an exceptional opportunity to obtain valuable knowledge and practical tools to transform our clients’ as well as our own lives. 

Christoffel is highly knowledgeable and experienced in the fields of coaching, therapy, neuroscience (and many more), and his integrative approach really enables to uncover & work through the underlying beliefs. 

Highly recommended course! "
