In this series I will be focusing on neurofeedback, a therapy I have been using in my practice since 2008. Neurofeedback is one of the most incredible tools I’ve had the privilege to learn about and use in my practice and has truly made a difference in so many people’s lives. Over the next few weeks, I will talk specifically about how neurofeedback can be used for particular issues such as autism and attention deficit disorders.
In today’s episode, my goal is to give you a good understanding of what neurofeedback actually is, how it works, and why it’s such a beneficial practice. Essentially, neurofeedback is the process of self-regulation – training your brain to respond in a specific way to a specific event. Many different professionals use neurofeedback in their practices, but this is something that you can also implement in your own life. Everyone from children to peak performers to entrepreneurs can benefit from neurofeedback.
