Neurofeedback


Neurofeedback, otherwise also known as Neurotherapy or EEG (Electroencephalogram) Biofeedback, is a technology-based learning technique that uses a computer to give information to a person about his or her own brainwave pattern in the form of EEG activity, in order to train the person to modify his or her own brainwaves. When the brain is not functioning properly, evidence of this usually shows up in EEG activity. EEG Biofeedback assists a person to alter his or her own brainwave characteristics by challenging the brain to learn to reorganise and function better.

The EEG Biofeedback technique is a process in which subtle brainwave information is amplified and shown back to the trainee in the form of a computer game. The object of the training is to re-educate the brain to make voluntary changes via computerized graphic displays and auditory signals that encourage a change in mental state and thus challenge the brain to function more effectively.

The EEG Biofeedback technique has been found to be effective in treating a number of conditions. EEG training is a gradual learning process with full programs taking 30 to 40 sessions.

What is Neurofeedback?


Neurofeedback is a treatment approach which measures brain activity via electrodes placed on the scalp, with activity then visualised on a monitor.  This allows a person to voluntarily control brain activity by influencing the signal on the screen. Over a gradual learning process, the brain is rewarded for changing its activity to more appropriate patterns.

Advantages of Neurofeedback for ADHD


Safe

We strictly administer Neurofeedback following a comprehensive assessment, so that the program is of optimal benefit to the patient.


Improves Sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep is important for people with mental health issues such as ADHD. By training the brain to less overactive states, Neurofeedback can make it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep.


No side effects

Neurofeedback is proven to be safe and other than feeling a little tired after a session, there are no side-effects to this brain training technique. Unlike certain ADHD medications, Neurofeedback therapy has the advantage that it does not cause sleep problems (actually it may improve sleep), stomach pains, nausea or agitation


Efficient

An average of 20 – 30 sessions is typically needed, with sessions held at least twice per week. After completing their Neurofeedback Program, most patients enjoy long-lasting benefits.


Natural

The efficacy of Neurofeedback relies on a gradual and natural learning process in the brain, like learning a musical instrument or sport. Once the new brain activity has been learnt, the positive effects can be sustained. Think of it like a “gym for the brain“.


Scientifically Proven

We only apply protocols which have been rigorously tested in science and use technologies that are supported by these studies. By doing a comprehensive QEEG and sleep assessment, our Psychologists and Psychiatrists are equipped with a deeper insight into your sleep activity, ADHD or ADD symptoms and can tailor the program to your individual brain activity.
