Are Your Relationships Important to You?

Mindfulness is about staying in the present. Not thinking about the past, not thinking about the future.

Mindfulness is about being present.

Easy to say but how do you do that?

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

What if you or your partner has suffered a brain injury or a stroke? How easy is it for the survivor and carer?

It isn't!

TBI sufferers often experience a communication gap with their primary carer caused by injury to the brain. We help survivors and carers to Bridge the communication gap.

Effective listening determines the quality of all relationships.  Unfortunately, survivors, carers, their immediate family, friends, and work colleagues. and ultimately, their happiness that depend on healthy communication is frequently disrupted by injury to the brain.

Carer's can find themselves married to a person who is changed.

Effective communication has three essential ingredients, Acquiring Knowledge, Acceptance, and Application.

Learn how to reduce conflict with these listening skills that help prevent unnecessary relationship failure.


If you learn and apply these advanced tools you will rapidly build rapport, deepen relationships and trust.

You will become an above average communicator and enjoy health rewarding and meaningful relationships.

about Alan Cox

Life experience plus research

I left school and went to the university of life. I learned fast and from first-hand experience. The film and television industry is a cut-throat environment.

Working on thousands of TV commercials, TV documentaries and corporate videos I know what works. Now I wanted to know why it worked.

In 1994 I learned Deep Structure Listening from an American Psychotherapist.

I learned about the incredible power of the unconscious mind. I learned how our unconscious emotional state controls how we react and behave.

I learned how to listen between the lines.

I learned how to ask the right question at the right time.

To share this knowledge and experience I created the Mindful Communication Online eLearning Course Mindful Communication is available on Tony Robbins Mastermind.

Do your relationships give your life meaning?

Relationships are where we are accepted for who we are.

In my opinion a basic human need is for relationships that give us security, intimacy, and belonging.

The skills in this module show you how to reduce conflict by gaining more clarity in your interpersonal communication, how you can listen beyond the obvious to others and yourself that result in greater self-awareness and confidence building rich lasting meaningful relationships.

In just 5 minutes I discovered what went wrong with my marriage...

When Alan showed me the Pinch Crunch model that explains how to maintain a healthy lasting relationship I understood what went wrong between my ex husband and myself.

If I had known this back then, things might have been different. 

As for the future I am confident that my next relationship will be stronger because of this knowledge.  Now I want the skills so I don't make the same mistakes again.

Great tips for businesses!

For business, the information in the 'Departure Lounge' videos is invaluable.

Imagine being able to 'hear' and 'see' the signs that your most indispensable employee is thinking of resigning or your best customer is about to take their business elsewhere is invaluable.

As a Mum and business owner I love the way Alan describes concepts that can be quite complex and involved in a way that is practical and easy to understand.

He cuts through the jargon making it easy to apply the skills in everyday life.

The Mindful Communication course has changed the way I listen.

As a psychologist I try to remove technical terms and jargon from my writing but it's hard. Alan has captured complex concepts transforming information into easy to understand everyday language.

I have never heard communication described so simply. Bye the way, some of the information Alan provides was new to me.
