Title: Feedback: Fear or Fun?

Title: Become the most efficient version of yourself

Geraldine Chapelle

Shurgard
(Belgium)

Karin Cornet is the owner of YUMATTER, a company dedicated to personal development and growth. Her specialty is brain training, a combination of neurofeedback, coaching and the philosophy of mindfulness.
Not only individuals, but whole teams benefit from personal growth. Karin brings back the autonomy, choice and personal responsibility.

All her working life she dedicated to the human in all its aspects. After studying as a physical therapist and acupuncturist in her twenties, she worked in Portugal for over 15 years as therapist and life coach.

Being curious by nature the question arose why people find it so hard to change. And why they act as they do when they come under stress and pressure. The answer pointed to neurofeedback and the brain as base of all actions and behaviour.

In 2010 she went to the USA to study neurotherapy. After returning to the Netherlands, her home country, she developed training programs and trained coaches to work with neurofeedback.
In 2019 she added a postgraduate Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction/Mindfulness based Cognitive therapy to her list of studies to further deepen the effect of braintraining.

‘I believe that we can take charge of our life, when we recognize what our patterns are.
Automated reflex patterns can become conscious choices. We can change our mind.
We can create and co-create. One step at the time.’

Géraldine Chapelle is a born entrepreneur and HSP (Highly Sensitive Person).
