Neurofeedback London – Brighton – Manchester provides Personalised Brain Training.

Neurofeedback is Personalised Brain Training. 

With a qEEG Brain Map, we can find vulnerabilities, strengths and challenges. 

Neurofeedback training helps improve our sense of self, sleep, mood regulation, memory and focus.  

It is an evidence-based, scientifically proven treatment, medication-free and non-invasive.

The process is enjoyable – while watching a movie of choice, we give feedback to our brain by changes in volume and picture size.  Our brain preconsciously adapts its behaviour and learning occurs.   See here how it works.

Neurofeedback is a form of complementary therapy and should not be seen as a replacement for conventional medicine.  qEEG brain map-based neurofeedback training takes a more holistic approach to brain functioning, rather than just focusing on medical symptoms.  It is not intended as a form of diagnosis nor medical intervention nor medical advice per the disclaimer.

Brain Maps and Personalised Brain Training

Kaiser Neuromap brain maps show character traits for neurofeedback

The functional connectivity between various brain areas allows us to see vulnerabilities to character traits or behaviour patterns.  

Every Brain is individual and different, therefore Personalised Brain Training neurofeedback

Personalised Brain Training is a neurofeedback training method devised by founders of the field, Barry Sterman and David Kaiser.  

 

qEEG recording of brain waves is analysed to generate a brain map in form of a Kaiser Neuromap

A brain map is an analysis of brain wave behaviour as measured by a qEEG recording.  We record 20 minutes of the brain activities with a 19-sensor qEEG recorder.  There is no stimulation, and contact between the sensors and the head is via an easily removable gel applied to specific points.  From this recording, we can generate a brain map using Kaiser Neuromap software.  

Neurofeedback process illustrated by electrode measurement analysed and transformed into feedback via a movie in visual and auditory form for the preconscious mind to process and adapt its behaviour to in a learning process.

Neurofeedback training is a process where we give the brain feedback about its own activity at a particular cortical site in real time, via visual, auditory or tactile means.  There is no direct stimulus to the brain and the sensors attached are for measurement of cortical EEG, or tiny electrical currents detectable on the surface of our head.  This signal is then amplified and analysed by software in real-time, and this information is used to provide auditory and visual feedback to our brain.  

Neurofeedback Training calms the mind and restores functionality

With neurofeedback training, we can reduce stress, calm the mind and restore cortical functionality. 

Neurofeedback training restores balance and equilibrium between brain and heart

We take a holistic approach to healthy brain self-regulation, rather than categorisation or diagnosis.  In our view, and experience, symptoms resolve when our system is balanced.

Neurofeedback helps restore functional connectivity in key neural networks

 We use a movie of choice as the feedback mechanism – our conscious mind engages with the film, and feedback is delivered by small changes in volume or picture size.  Our pre-conscious mind adapts its behaviour to preserve the more comfortable volume and picture size, and learning occurs.

Neurofeedback is evidence based therapy with a wealth of over 2,000 peer-reviewed research reports per PubMed neurofeedback

Neurofeedback is evidence-based.  

There are over 2,000 peer-reviewed research reports on PubMed demonstrating efficacy across a number of pathologies. 

Neurofeedback training is safe and non-invasive shown in a picture using Othmer Method

Neurofeedback training is safe, effective and non-invasive.  

There is no direct stimulation of the brain:  We measure brain activity and provide feedback through changes in volume and picture size.  The brain understands this and adjusts its behaviour preconsciously.

Kaiser Neuromap qEEG recording forms basis for neurofeedback personalised brain training

A qEEG recording takes about 45minutes for a 20 minute recording.  We analyse the data with Kaiser Neuromap software which gives us a unique view into character traits and vulnerabilities.  Findings are presented in a separate conversation.  Note this is not diagnosis – issues found are necessary, but not sufficient conditions for a particular attribute and represent vulnerabilities.

Following a Kaiser Neuromap we do Neurofeedback Personalised Brain Training

 We use a movie of choice as the feedback mechanism – our conscious mind engages with the film, and feedback is delivered by small changes in volume or picture size.  

Our pre-conscious mind adapts its behaviour to preserve the more comfortable volume and picture size, and learning occurs. 

Volume changes are slight, not stop-start, and the process is enjoyable. 

neurofeedback training sessions last two hours to capture an entire ultradian rhythm cycle

A two hour training sessions allows us to do 90 minutes of neurofeedback.  This captures an entire ultradian rhythm cycle and corresponds to the approximate duration of feature film movies.  We can start with shorter sessions as appropriate, mainly with children.

 

Forty hours of neurofeedback training is twenty sessions, three per week, over two to three months; intensives with two sessions per day for two weeks

Ideally, we do three or more sessions per week to start with.  We would expect to see responsiveness within the first few sessions and remap after twenty hours or ten sessions.  Generally, we would expect to doing forty hours or twenty sessions over two months, though this can vary. 

We can also accommodate intensives, where we do two sessions per day over a number of days, and have had good results with these.

Neurofeedback training relies on real-time EEG measurement, analysis and translation into feedback

Neurofeedback improves Mental and Emotional Capacity

 Now is always a good time for self-reflection and an opportunity to reposition our mental and physical well-being. 

Neurofeedback is a safe, non-invasive, drug-free approach to improving mental and emotional capacity.   

Peak performers increase motivation, enhance focus, report better sleep and stronger emotional balance. 

Challenges we address are symptoms of anxiety, depression, fatigue, sleep issues, trauma and pain perception. 

Children and teenagers learn better brain behaviours that translate into stronger social skills, focussed attention, reduced stress and anxiety, and as a result gain confidence and maturity. 

Age-related issues and developmental disorders can be addressed with neurofeedback

Sensory processing involves many pre-conscious brain area activation and neuronal information flows before we gain conscious awareness of impulses from our environment.  We rely on a mature activation of specialised brain areas and their smooth interfacing with relevant brain networks.  When either is compromised, we lose the ability to live in the moment, and pathologies result.  Focus, sleep, drive and mood regulation depend on an efficient functioning of our brain circuitry

With neurofeedback, we can identify which brain areas need training, and show the brain more efficient habits.  The brain now has the choice to apply what it has learned and integrate new behaviour patterns into our life.  

Neurofeedback training is non-invasive and drug-free.  Sessions involve watching a movie of choice, providing a reward to our conscious mind.  Sensors, applied comfortably with a washable, conductive paste, measure small currents (EEG) on our scalp that can be amplified and analysed real-time.  When undesired patterns are detected, the volume drops and the picture shrinks, and the brain pre-consciously adapts its behaviour to restore continuity of the film shown, i.e. the reward for our conscious mind.  Throughout a session, a learning effect can thus be observed.  

We train specific brain areas to learn a more efficient behaviour pattern.  The brain can choose to adopt this if it improves our overall functioning, and integrate better habits into our life – such as improved sleep, focus, drive and mood regulation.  Neurofeedback training is passive (for our conscious mind) and changes we make are voluntary, that is, they can be unlearned if they don’t serve a purpose. 

Neurofeedback training starts with a qEEG brain map, where we record the brain’s activity for about twenty minutes with different tasks.  Analysis of this data enables us to form a targeted, individualised training plan

Neurofeedback training sessions last between one and two hours, thus accommodating a natural ultradian attention rhythm as well as the duration of a movie.  We can train multiple sites during this time and repeat the process as needed.  Usually starting with three sessions per week, training can be adapted to be more or less frequent, and intensive courses involving two sessions per day over a week can also be accommodated.  Ten sessions will give a good indication of responsiveness, which besides subjective feedback we can ascertain with a further brain map.  Usually forty hours of neurofeedback can address most brain areas targeted,  though severity can influence this somewhat if certain brain behaviours are more ingrained. 

Our flexibility to change our surroundings, such as confronting relationships and ambitions, is key to enabling and ensconcing changes.  Neurofeedback training can be complemented with various types of therapies, including talk, touch and diet.
