Understanding Neuroeducational Consulting and How Neuro Noel came to be
Understanding Neuroeducational Consulting
Neuroeducational consulting uses the latest findings from neuroscience, psychology and cognitive science to decrease anxiety/stress and inform teaching, learning and peak performance—with the brain and body in mind. Knowing the connection of emotion to learning, this approach cultivates safe and supportive environments, fosters the development of healthy mindsets and incorporates strategies that boost attention, engagement, executive function, motivation and performance.
Meet Noel Foy, Founder
As a Neuroeducator and author of Are You a Bird Like Me? and award winning ABC Worry Free, Noel is a former classroom teacher and learning specialist whose mission is to help her clients use the Neuroscience of learning to their advantage in quick, user-friendly ways, so they can decrease stress, promote healthy change and maximize success in all facets of life. Noel received her B.A. in Education/Special Education and M.A. in American Studies from Boston College. She is certified to treat anxiety in children and teens.
How Neuro Noel came to be
It all started by connecting the dots. A fervor for learning and helping others reach their potential led Noel to a career in education as a teacher and Learning Specialist. The diagnosis of a family member with Post Concussion Syndrome sparked a passion in brain research, which led to Noel’s evolution as a neuroeducator, the founding of Neuro Noel Consulting and “Neuro Noel.”
In all realms of Noel’s work, she listened to educators, parents and business managers lament that their students, children or teams lacked consistent focus, self-direction, self-regulation and resilience, despite best efforts to instruct or support them. Especially challenging were those with anxiety, learning challenges or ADHD. Neuro Noel Consulting is Noel’s response to these challenges and fulfills her vision of bringing Neuroscience findings into everyday environments and translating them into quick, practical applications for schools, homes and businesses.
Via workshops, keynotes and one-on-one coaching, Noel equips schools, families and professionals with practical language and productive responses to reduce anxiety/stress, learn from mistakes, develop a growth mindset and boost executive function, resilience and performance.
Dedicated to helping others build underdeveloped skill sets and mindsets needed to stress less, work smarter and achieve more, Noel is passionate about facilitating “aha” moments and supporting her clients as they change their lives for the better and reflect their true potential in school, jobs, relationships and life.
Additionally, Noel finds storytelling an approachable and playful way to tackle complex topics. She is a recipient of the prestigious Mom’s Choice Award® for her first children’s book A.B.C. Worry Free (order now on Amazon), which includes a three step approach to manage anxiety. Her second book Are You a Bird Like Me? inspires readers to believe in themselves and the amazing things that can happen by working together. Both books encourage productive change and the will to face fears through courage and friendship.
