Chris Edwards is a man who changes lives. With his deep knowledge of the brain, consciousness, betterment of one’s physical, mental, and spiritual health, he is exactly what anyone could ever dream of with a therapist. He is highly skilled in his craft and has the most passion of everyone I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Chris Edwards never slows down, every single patient of his is a priority and he works himself down to the bone. Around the clock, his tenacity and outrageous work ethic never goes unnoticed and reflects during each session. Never have I met a more qualified individual in this field. You leave with an unwavering amount of insight and intellect— it doesn’t just stop at achieving progressive brain health. He brings an eclectic approach to his practice— providing you with insight of lifestyle changes, supplements, behavioral therapy, and esoteric ideas to improve your mindset and perspective of life, including yourself. His method of therapy is the most effective of all I have ever experienced. He is the new age of therapy— his practice is what will shift the paradigm of all neurotherapy as we know it.
Personally, Chris changed my life. As someone who suffered from severe trauma, I deemed it impossible to reverse. At this point in my life, I was 16 years old— having already experienced 15 therapists in my short life. 15 therapists who I felt never saw me, understood me, and genuinely sought out the betterment of my health. This man, he was different. Any question I would ask, he was there, with the utmost knowledge and intellect of anyone I have ever met.
The idea I associate him most with is the water and the horse. He told me “You can bring a horse to water but can’t make it drink. So instead, I will provide the map to the water, the resources to get there, and some affirming words along the way but I cannot make you drink. At the end of the day you will do what you want. You cannot and will not change if it is something you don’t truly want. So, here are your tools.” Life changing. These tools were things of a many splendid mind-bending ideas. Esoteric philosophical ideas of reality, spiritual practices, the list went on. He was never one to just sit there quietly “I see… Tell me more.” Talk therapy can only be effective for so long until a wall is hit. It was the method of how he treated me that healed me.
He gave me insight of life and a deeper perspective on things I would have otherwise never noticed. He paints a purpose for you to visually see, not just with nice assuring words. He makes every single person feel seen and heard, cared for, understood. I am able to confidently say I would be nowhere near the place in my life had I not met him. He reversed years of trauma, anxiety, deeply rooted insecurities, and bad habits that degenerated my life. He explained to me that emotional therapy is much like physical therapy. Much like a physical therapist, our brain is like a muscle that is slowly being exercised to regain strength and full function. The method of his practice highlights the process of healing in small ways that over time leave a long-lasting impact.
Chris was able to teach me that once you realize you have the power to change your perspective of reality with adjustments in thought patterns, minimizing your unhealthy habits and ways of coping, you will explore the inner workings of your own mind and live with more compassion and freedom. I owe my entire life to him. My spiritual view of the world has made me more in touch with the people around me (personally and strangers), I am more empathetic, gentle, soft, compassionate, and simply exude radiating love for all including myself because of him. I sympathize deeply for those who have yet to meet him and never will. He is the smartest man I have ever met in my life and I am grateful every day that the universe brought us together. My heart aches for him as he is the best mentor, friend, and person to look up to — quite possibly in the entire world.
