Dr. Monica Berntsen

is a Counselling Psychologist and

Neuropsychologist specialising in brain

treatments for Neurorehabilitation, mental

health and behavioural control.

She helps people regain functions lost after

stroke or brain damage and functions impaired

by neurodegenerative disorders.

She also helps people gain control of

behaviour and mental health problems.

If you have suffered a stroke or brain injury, you may have lost the ability to:

Regaining function

Functions depend on dedicated neural

networks in the brain.

When a network is broken by stroke or

damage, the function is damaged too


The function can be retrieved by

repairing the broken neural network

using non-invasive brain stimulation

and training that targets the function

lost or damaged. 

Behavioural control

is the ability to make intentional, planned, and rational behavioural choices.


If you have poor behavioural control, you may struggle with: 

Gaining control

Behaviour is also stored in neural networks in the brain.

Repeating a behaviour reinforces the neural network relating to the behaviour.

When rehearsed enough, the behaviour becomes ‘hardwired’ in the brain and difficult to control.

The behaviour can be corrected by conscious effort

to control it. 

As you get better at controlling it, the neural network rewires

itself to accommodate the change.
