Marie-Josee Drouin & Diane Durand Canada

Toutes les 2 diplômées en ergothérapie, elles sont devenues les meilleures amies en travaillant ensemble comme ergothérapeutes consultantes à Anciens Combattants Canada. Leur expérience de travail en relation d’aide, en consultation et en enseignement a principalement été acquise en réadaptation, en milieu communautaire, en recherche et à l’Université.

Passionnées par le cerveau et la transformation humaine, elles ont découvert NeurOptimal® en 2011 alors qu’elles exploraient d’autres horizons thérapeutiques pour donner un nouveau tournant à leur carrière. Elles ont immédiatement été ravies par le génie et la simplicité de la méthode ainsi que par sa philosophie non-invasive et novatrice.

Aujourd’hui, après plus de 25 ans de pratique en Ergothérapie et après avoir fondé leur compagnie NeuroZenith, elles projettent de bientôt consacrer tout leur temps au Neurofeedback dynamique. Elles reçoivent déjà des clients de toutes provenances et problématiques : Comme elles disent souvent ‘’toute personne qui a un cerveau peut faire du NeurOptimal® !’’

Elles sont heureuses d’avoir joint les rangs de l’équipe de Zengar en tant que représentantes et instructors (du Basic Certification). Ceci leur permettra de réaliser 2 objectifs qui leurs tiennent à cœur : Faire connaître NeurOptimal® au Québec (et au Canada !) ainsi que soutenir les clients et les nouveaux Trainers francophones dans leur découverte de cette merveilleuse technologie. N’hésitez pas à les contacter, vous apprécierez leur expérience clinique ainsi que leur dynamisme et leur grande disponibilité !

Both graduated as Occupational Therapist, they became best friends while working as OT consultant at Veterans Affairs Canada. Their working backgrounds were acquired in rehab and community settings, research centers and teaching in Universities.

Passionate with the brain and human transformation, they discovered NeurOptimal® in 2011 while exploring new horizons to their OT practice to give a second breath to their career. They were enchanted by this brilliant but simple NFB approach and the non-invasive philosophy behind it.

After over 25 years of OT practice and after founding NeuroZenith, they are planning to dedicate the rest of their career to doing their dynamic work. They offer services to all kinds of clients: they see anybody who has a brain!

Recently, they had the privilege to join the Zengar team as Live Instructors (Basic Training) and Representatives to spread the good news about NeurOptimal® in Quebec (in Canada!) and to support clients and new francophone practitioners with their exploration of this wonderful technology. Feel free to contact them, you will benefit from their clinical experience and will enjoy their caring support!
