“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are”

Anais Nin

The advance in neuroscience and neuropsychology is rapidly deepening our understanding of how the brain works and the impact this has on our well-being, behaviours, attitudes and assumptions. No model, system or online profiling tool is the ‘truth’ - there is a preponderance of theories not supported by facts - but brain science, especially the fMRI scans, are increasingly providing insights into why we feel, think and behave as we do.

Our transformational coaching work in this area often deals with challenging, deep seated, beliefs, prejudices and assumptions and in raising self-awareness.


For some clients, a personality or behavioural profile is a useful starting point. It allows a discussion about individual difference without judgement or assumption. It may shed light on why the client see’s themselves differently from how others see them.

It can help you answer questions such as;

  • What am I really good at?
  • Am I playing to my strengths?
  • What areas do I need to work on to improve my performance?
  • How could raised self-awareness help me improve different areas of my life?
  • What areas of my personality/behaviour are holding me back in my career/life?

Here at Crisp we use a number of different types of profiling tool, depending on the needs of the client.

Three of the most popular are:

We also offer training courses that provide an introduction to managers and individuals on some of these topics.
