  • Every lesson is designed to facilitate highly effective learning, providing practical, relevant insights that help you be more influential in your area of expertise.This specially designed self-learning programme helps you to be more effective in both your work and personal life
  • What can you do with this kind of neuroscientific knowledge?Well, you can turn proven neuroscience theory from a credible source into practical applications, giving you the confidence to use what you’ve learnt about the brain and the psychology behind it throughout your work.
  • What does flexible learning give you?Information that’s relevant to your area of expertise so you can ‘cherry pick’ what’s needed. You’ll get unlimited access to 35 videos (each 5-15 mins long), so you can revisit whenever you wish.

After completing the Neuroscience Professional Development Programme, I have to say that Lynda has made a huge difference in my understanding of neuroscience and how it relates to business. Her approach was spot on. Lynda has certainly inspired me in my journey to help individuals and teams to become more resilient and cope better after traumatic events. Thank you Lynda.

“Lynda gave a compelling presentation to our company on the effects of stress on the brain at a wellbeing-focused conference. I was really impressed with the time Lynda took getting to know our company culture, how responsive to feedback she was, and how she tailored her talk for maximum impact to her audience.


  • For coaches and trainers – you’ll develop expertise in facilitating change because knowing how the brain adapts to change helps you to help other people.You’ll have a deeper understanding of how the brain adapts to change either long or short-term, how we create new habits, make decisions and adapt to stressful situations. Change can be frightening, but with your training as a coach and mentor, your understanding of psychology today will put you at an advantage.
  • Accurate and up-to-date information on a fast-paced constantly changing subject like neuroscience will help keep your knowledge of the psychology of human behaviour fresh in your mind.It will help your clients make lasting changes, and if you’re creative, you’ll understand why people do what they do like never before.

I joined it as I am a firm believer in continuous learning, and the field of neuroscience in particular is constantly adding more findings, greater depth and further context to what we think we already know. Lynda navigates all of this on our behalf.


What’s included:

  • Total of 35 short impactful videos with unlimited access, so you can revisit whenever you wish.
  • Back up material to support learning

    About Dr Lynda Shaw


    Hi there, thank you for stopping by.

    I’m Lynda, a neuroscientist, specialist mentor, international speaker …. and fun seeker.

    My brain had just been tickled learning about our brains! Lynda's NPDP has been a fabulous experience in many ways and I feel I will learn so much more when I repeat the course I just finished. There was so much to take in I will be revising repeatedly for a while and feel I will learn more and more each time. I am already sharing what I have taken in with clients who are grateful for the little nuggets that I can give them so far. I am excited to learn more as I go and pick up even more to add to my ability to help myself and others - thanks Lynda! I thoroughly recommend this course to anyone with an interest for any reason, interesting, practical, fun, entertaining, enlightening - I could go on! I am so glad I did this...
