Neurofeedback and Anxiety

Neurofeedback can be very helpful with:
  • Social Anxiety
  • Generalized Anxiety
  • OCD - Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Panic Attacks
  • Phobias
All of these, and other forms of anxiety are miserable to have. People who are both depressed and anxious are statistically at greater risk of suicide than people who are just depressed. It is not at all a fun way to experience life. I encourage you to not just put up with it.

Most commonly, the first two things my clients report are better sleep and less anxiety, often after the first one or two sessions. Other things may take a bit longer or sometimes a lot longer.

For a sampling of the results reported by my clients, visit the Client Comments page of my website. If you have problems with anxiety, you're likely to relate to things you read there. That's also true if there are other things you'd like to see change:  Focus and attention problems, depression, "chemo brain," and others. I love the things my clients report and there's a broad sampling there.

If you are considering neurofeedback for anxiety, while you are mulling it over you could also practice the well-validated Relaxation Response breathing method. Click here to go to the Links page of my website, where you can download a free PDF instruction sheet.
