Have you ever wanted to see what goes on inside your brain? Neurofeedback allows you to do just that by displaying your brain waves on a screen. A few sensors are placed on your scalp in order to read the waves in a process that is simple and can be done anywhere.
But neurofeedback is not only informative, it is also therapeutic. By displaying your brain waves on a computer screen in real time, neurofeedback gives you the unique opportunity to consciously alter the waves. A trained neurofeedback therapist can help decipher the readings on the screen.
With practice, you can learn to support healthy brain function and be better able to cope with negative feelings and experiences.
Neurofeedback is an effective complementary treatment for a broad range of neurological or brain-based disorders, including:
Stress, depression, anxiety, grief and other emotions can make it tempting to have a drink or reach for your drug of choice. Neurofeedback helps you cope with these temptations by retraining your brain. When you are able to process and let go of strong emotions, they have no power over you. Neurofeedback makes it less of a challenge to achieve a relaxed, calm and focused state of mind.
At Promises Behavioral Health, neurofeedback is offered as one of many therapy options to prevent relapse and to nurture a healthy state of mind. Neurofeedback can help address a wide range of mental health challenges, supporting you on your road to recovery.
