Professional Neurofeedback and Counseling
From young students to the elderly, just about everybody can benefit from neurofeedback. Simply put, neurofeedback is training the brain to improve it's function. And just as you'd expect, when the brain improves so do you. Over the years we've heard a wide variety of reports from our clients about how neurofeedback has helped them. Here are a few:
clarity of thought
sense of calm
listening/ability to be present
sense of well-being/happiness
Difficulty focusing, inattentiveness, hyperactivity, forgetfulness, absent mindedness, low-motivation, impulsivity, etc are all symptoms of what the psychiatric world calls ADHD. We call it an "under aroused" or "dysregulated" brain. Neurofeedback helps strengthen the brain so it is sharper, and better able to stay on task and govern impulses. Many of our clients report that it doesn't just help them pay attention at school or work but it also gives them greater control over their emotions. Research Link
Anxiety and depression are two of the most common mental health complaints in Utah. The stresses of life can cause the brain to become chronically hyper-aroused (anxiety) depleting the body of the resources it needs to energize the brain (depression). Neurofeedback helps to activate or calm correlating brain patterns to improve one's sense of calm and positivity so you are better able to deal with the stresses and responsibilities of life. Many of our clients report that after neurofeedback they not only feel more relaxed and happy but deal with stress in a much more healthy way.
Experiencing too much of something one doesn't need (infringement trauma) or not enough of something one does need (abandonment trauma) elevates the brain's survival response causing one to mistrust their environment and/or others. Neurofeedback can target and calm the brain's arousal system (the limbic system) so that it can regain normal levels of comfort and for many, feel safe in their relationships again. The best part? We don't need to talk about the trauma to help deal with it!
There is extensive research showing the effectiveness of neurofeedback in treating addiction disorders. While neurofeedback should not be thought of as a "cure", research shows that when comparing it to individual therapy or "anonymous" group type-therapy, neurofeedback produces much longer lasting and lengthier periods of sobriety. It does this by treating addiction as a trauma disorder AND a brain dysregulation disorder.
You wouldn't know it (because they try to keep their performance boosting secrets to themselves), but most major college and professional sports teams use neurofeedback to improve their athlete's performance. They do because neurofeedback is uniquely powerful at promoting calm focused states, exactly the type ofstate an athlete needs to be in when the game is on the line.
Take a tip from professional pilots, athletes, actors, vocalists, business executives, and others, learn how to get maximum results by focusing in a calm and alert manner.
Study after study shows that neurofeedback helps in a wide variety of conditions, including:
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Traumatic Brain Injury
