This course is open health professionals involved in pain and stress management.

Graded Motor Imagery (GMI) is an evidence based, graded, brain training programme which accesses the virtual body in the brain. It is useful for a wide range of chronic pain states where the central nervous system may be up-regulated, including osteoarthritis, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, phantom pains and ‘non-specific’ spinal pains. It gives new hope to many people in pain.

GMI involves the use of Apps, Flashcards, motor imagery, mirrors and Explain Pain education. In this course, participants are exposed to GMI principles and techniques to immediately integrate it into their current practice.


The Noigroup Explain Pain course provides the educational underpinnings for the GMI course and as such, is a prerequisite. You must have attended a Noigroup Explain Pain course – a certificate must be supplied to the Noigroup host.

B App Sc (Physio) M Physio (Neurological) PhD MACP

Brendon lives in Melbourne, Australia, where he works clinically ( with people who experience chronic pain. He has a particular interest in complex pain states, such as those with neuropathic pain symptoms. For many years he worked in rehabilitation hospital-based pain clinics and has developed educational resources for a range of clinical pain-related services. He is a member of the Australian College of Physiotherapists, having been awarded Titling in multiple disciplines of physiotherapy: Pain, Neurological and Research.

Brendon is actively involved in clinical research that started with his own PhD, which investigated chronic pain following stroke, and now continues as a Research Fellow at both La Trobe University and The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health. He is currently involved in studies for complex conditions such as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and Chronic Post-Stroke Pain, exploring the effectiveness of interventions, including pain education, graded motor imagery, sensory retraining, and mind-body therapies. He now also supervises higher-degree researchers in pain-related topics at La Trobe University and the University of Adelaide.

He has been teaching at the post-graduate level since 2002 in areas of both pain and neurology and joined the NOI stables as an instructor in 2012. In addition to teaching the NOI Explain Pain and Graded Motor Imagery courses, he has also developed and teaches a course that is designed for clinicians working with neurological clients with pain; Explain Pain: Stroke and NeuroRehab. As a clinician with more than 25 years of experience working with clients with chronic pain, he strives to “bring the clinic” to each course, ensuring that there is plenty of time for the in-depth “I’ve got this patient who…” questions.
