Neurofeedback Training for Health, Well-Being, and Better Brain Function

In non-intrusive, relaxing thirty minute mind exercise sessions, Neurofeedback training aims to improve health and well-being .  This includes sleep, attention, concentration and performance – a calm mind is faster and more efficient.  By enabling the brain to see its own EEG activity, we enhance awareness of internal states.  This improves the brain’s ability to self-regulate, and therefore supports better brain function.  Instead of diagnosing or treating specific disorders, we look to enable the nervous system to calm down and find its optimal rhythm.  In the process, we reduce uncomfortable symptoms such as sleep issues, headaches, emotional imbalances and anxiety. This drives improvement in function and performance, spontaneity and creativity.  

The process is fun, non-invasive and drug-free.  The results are positively life-changing.


The Othmer Method for Improved Brain Self-Regulation, Trauma Resolution and Better Resilience

At Neurofeedback London, we use the Othmer Method of Neurofeedback, a powerful set of protocols whose core principle is to show the brain a reflection of its own activity, like a mirror, and allowing the brain to improve its self-regulation with this information, by itself.  We are not correcting brainwave patterns, nor are we making it do anything.  It is a non-normative process, respecting each brain’s individuality.  We respect and utilise the brain’s ability to make use of this information – being its own EEG brainwave activity – to heal itself and find its own way out of dysfunctional modes of behaviour.   With three sets of protocols, namely ILFAlpha Theta and Synchrony, we train physiological self-regulation; allow psychological resolution of trauma, or causes of dysregulation; and promote resilience and feeling of well-being.  Through repeated training, we help the brain find new pathways and ultimately rewire itself.  Ten, twenty or more sessions are often required to achieve permanent results. 

Good Brain Self-Regulation means Promptly Finding and Maintaining the Right Level of Physiological Arousal for Each Situation

Normally, our body would react to stress with a burst of adrenaline, enabling us to deal with the sudden ‘fight or fright’ moment. In this instance, we are well-suited to dealing with tasks at hand, we are alert, react impulsively yet with full consciousness and assertiveness. This is a very useful state for many situations, and we need it, however there’s only a relatively short time our body can sustain it. While in it, we neglect other bodily functions, other worries, ambitions, needs, plans or strategies.

We therefore need to return comfortably to a more relaxed state, eat, drink, and recuperate in a deep sleep, which is the opposite end of the excitability spectrum.

The middle ground is what we spend most of our day in, and here we’d like to have as much awareness and emotional participation as possible, ideally being well-rested and relaxed while being able to problem-solve, be creative, empathise and be aware of one’s own needs, ambitions, abilities and having a healthy sense of self-worth and appreciation.  It is this state of mind that neurofeedback aims to enhance.

Modern lifestyles put us into a state of permanent, though less extreme stress. Irregular sleep patterns, diminished sleep quality or difficulties getting to sleep unaided are obvious symptoms of this. Our minds and bodies are constantly under pressure, sometimes so subtly that we are not even aware of it, nor that we have the ability to reset and arrange our life the way we’d like it.



By training the brain to regulate itself effectively, we are teaching ourselves to be able to relax when necessary, become alert and impulsive when needed.  To be on top of things at work, at home, with friends and family,  during sports and recreation, while able to fall asleep safely and soundly for maximum recuperation.

We use the Othmer Method of Neurofeedback to show the brain a reflection of its own brainwave activity.  With this information, the brain is able to correct its rhythm, that is, self-regulate more optimally.  The result is better focus, attention, sleep, and the resolution of a plethora of other issues.
