Neurofeedback is an approach that integrates neuroscience and brain-activity scanning with understanding and practice from psychotherapy, developmental trauma, and talk and creative therapies.
Some people find it difficult to access these therapies, so Neurofeedback can be an alternative to help map out and work with the areas of the brain most in need of attention. Following successful Neurofeedback it is increasingly possible to access regular therapies, to engage in learning, and to be a part of a family.
Neurofeedback provides an immediate visual representation of brain activity, helping you to train different areas of your brain to enhance the mind’s balance. Different therapies can have an impact on the balance of your brain’s activity (diet, exercise sleep), but Neurofeedback helps to locate just which areas are getting in the way of clear thinking.
How does it work? One or two small, non-invasive, sensors are used to share information about your brain’s activity to a computer screen. Because a balanced brain gives us a general ‘good feeling’, you will be able to progressively improve the ‘feel good’ balance of your brain through receiving real-time feedback about what your brain is doing.
Sessions are held at an accessible venue, can be weekly or more frequent, and usually take 30 – 50 minutes. Research has shown that between 20 and 60 sessions can be effective, and long-term change is sustained.
