How Neurofeedback Works

Neurofeedback is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment that can help with anger, PTSD, sleep issues, brain injuries, and ADHD.

Some people can fly into an uncontrollable rage and don't know why and people with PTSD may have no idea what is going on in their body.









Neurofeedback lets you see what's happening in your brain so you can learn how to recognise triggers, calm yourself, and respond appropriately. It helps you harmonise brain waves, naturally, without medication.


If neurofeedback is the right treatment for you, a brain map will give us a good idea of how many sessions you need. Brain mapping lets us see how the brain functions and identify the source of your symptoms, which helps us determines the most effective neurofeedback treatment to help improve your quality of life without reliance on drugs.

Neurofeedback and brain mapping uses sensors to read brain waves. It feels a bit like wearing a hat. A small amount of gel is applied to the head to help with the connectivity, but this washes out and is perfectly safe; no electricity goes into the head.


On a rare occasion some people may have brain fog or sleep issues after treatment. If this happens, we may need to take a different approach to treatment and will make it a priority for you to get the treatment you need.
