The Resurface Method
Using flow states to deepen therapeutic change
Hello Resurface Community,
Have you ever found yourself so deeply immersed in an activity that it feels like time stands still? That's the elusive state of 'Flow.' At Resurface, we've cracked the code, using the art of surfing to help our clients boost their flow experiences and unlocking the power to solve problems by up to an astonishing 430% (University of Sydney, Chi, R. P., & Snyder, A. W., 2012).
Can you even fathom the impact this has on group and one-on-one therapy?
At Resurface our vision is to revolutionise behavioural health through flow science, our mission is to to help millions achieve optimal wellbeing and flourish, and our purpose is to empower every person to live a life of purpose, meaning and peak performance.
We achieve this through The Resurface Method™.
The Resurface Method™: Master Your Balance & Thrive
Proven to deliver a more efficient, effective and exciting therapeutic solution, The Resurface Method™ enables clients to go much deeper, much faster.
By combining experiential healing with evidence-based psychological approaches, our fully integrated programs facilitate proven long-lasting transformation.
Our program's synergistic design multiplies its benefits. Each component builds on the last, integrating evidence-based approaches into a holistic sequence that catalyzes profound transformation. The sum total effect far exceeds the individual parts - unlocking change on a deeper level.
The Resurface Method™
Interoception is the capacity to notice and understand what is going on inside your body. This is essential for developing an increased sense of agency and control, boosting self-esteem and generating a stronger sense of self. At Resurface we integrate trauma-sensitive yoga, HRV training and meditation to help boost client’s interoceptive awareness.
Psycho-edcuation is a key component in any form of psychological recovery. It helps to understand the why of what is happening, allowing for both insight into the solutions and helping to develop and deepen self-compassion. Each day we start with a psycho-educational workshop that is not only therapeutic but shapes the day ahead.
Flow - Surfing is the core element that underlines and supports everything we do. Widely regarded as an effective form of therapy in and of itself, we also use surfing to get you into a state of ‘Flow’ - which releases the potential to solve problems by up to 430% and increase productivity by 500%. We have seen this have a profound effect in both group and 1:1 therapy.
Experiential group work - As can be seen from past client testimonials, our group therapy often has a deep and lasting transformational impact. Clients experience unexpected powerful realisations and revelations which ignite major behavioural changes, allowing clients to let go of their past, come up with their own creative insights and solutions, and move towards a greater place of flourishing.
Memory Consolidation is an essential part of what we do at Resurface. At the end of each day there is so much to understand, integrate and process. It is therefore necessary to help clients to relax and we use Non Sleep Deep Rest (NSDR) protocols to facilitate this. This not only helps with memory consolidation but also allows for a deep sense of relaxation at the end of the day.
But let's not just take my word for it. Hear it straight from our clients:
“I wanted to let you know that following the retreat I am much happier in my everyday life. To feel empowered to decide myself over my future and my own happiness is something that makes me feel strong and relaxed, and this I haven’t felt in a long time. It gives me hope. I am actually looking forward to the future and all the possibilities in it.” - Resilience and Flow Program Alumni
“We were fully focused and deeply interested in what Josh was teaching us. As someone who suffers with ADHD, I can find it hard to keep my focus, but the subjects all resonated with me, Josh’s style of teaching connected us all and the exercises had us gently stepping out of our comfort zones.” - Trauma Resolution Program Alumni
“A fantastic retreat on “resilience and flow” in a luxury Hamptons NY setting. Josh and Kristine delivered a very thoughtful and varied programme that left me with many tools and ideas to both improve my own productivity and reduce anxiety. Josh’s presentations are articulate and highly engaging, and he has the ability to get a group of strangers to open up and share which results in value for all.” - Resilience and Flow Retreat Alumni
“Fantastic week with a wonderful team. Initially I was nervous to go and thought maybe a “overkill” but this is for everyone. The team are amazing. Super professional, kind and very caring. You will instantly feel at ease and leave a fresher, stronger and better you.” - EMDR Intensive Alumni
