Who Can Be Helped By Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback Solutions for Emotional Wellness, Attachment, Trauma, and Sports Performance
People seeking therapy just want to feel better. Fortunately there are brainwaves that are related to our feelings (both good and bad) that cause reactions to people, places and experiences. Our Neurofeedback professionals will assess you through a battery of questions derived from a large, highly effective UCLA study to determine protocol suggestions that prioritize the training of specific brainwaves related to better emotion regulation.
The objective is to teach your brain to balance and not be reactive in response to events out of your control. It is a common human experience to feel happy if things go your way, and to be angry, frustrated or depressed if they don’t. Neurofeedback assists you to live in a state of “What is” rather than in “What should have, could have, and would have.” Instead of getting your way, you perceive options that are better than your way. Instead of getting your way, you get what you want.
Intimate relationships tend to stir our most basic survival mechanisms. When we fear losing what we have or not getting what we want, we have a tendency to regress into childlike states of relating. These patterns are defense mechanisms for subconscious fears and distorted beliefs about who we are and how others are being.
When we are in these reactive states, our frontal lobe shuts down – this is the part associated with emotions, reasoning, problem solving and parts of speech. When this happens, we react in extremely predictable patterns, and there is no chance for constructive communication or harmonious resolutions. At these times, all we are wired for is survival and control, which only intensifies the initial problem. Neurofeedback can change survival reactions into reasoned responses. Isn’t that what we all seek in our partners, children and friends?
If you are an amateur athlete, professional athlete, or weekend warrior, neurofeedback can help you perfect your game. Brainwave training can reduce competition related anxiety, decrease reactivity at the starting line, and produce states of high capacity learning for imprinting the perfect swing, perfect catch, perfect goal, perfect response during the stress of the athletic endeavor. Neurofeedback is used by Olympians the world over to improve performance. Neurofeedback improves all aspects of your game and can solidify the future of your child’s competitive edge.
