Neurofeedback and Psychotherapy

Below is an interesting video of interviews of two psychotherapists talking about how they use neurofeedback to increase the effectiveness of therapy and decrease the amount of treatment time required.

As both a psychotherapist and a neurofeedback trainer, I agree with them about the benefits. Neurofeedback and counseling are wonderfully complementary.

Many of my therapy clients have done a lot of very good work but find there are still elements of "wiring," either inherited or developed in response to trauma or neglect, that neurofeedback can make the difference with.

Another aspect of using neurofeedback that I especially like is that it typically decreases the negative feelings associated with past traumas without the need for the client to intensely re-experience them. Clients feel freed up in a very natural, organic way. That's wonderful for people who experienced severe abuse as a child, for whom the working through process can be difficult.

If you have questions, please post them here - or you can also email me confidentially.
