Neurofeedback is a non-invasive therapy, which may assist a variety of presenting conditions, Sydney’s best positioned clinic for allied health services. Direct Focus Solutions, has partnered with the Neurofeedback Treatment Centre to offer tailor-made treatments to address symptoms of brain disorders, learning difficulties and mental health issues.
What is Neurofeedback?
The brain is an incredible organ. It can adapt and improve its performance. Using the brain’s own ability to self-regulate, state-of-the-art technology is applied to resolve the symptoms of many disorders, including anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD, PTSD, concentration difficulties, autism, PMS, emotional disturbances, headaches and more. Simply put, neurofeedback (NFT) is a tool that trains the brain to regulate itself to improve performance.
Our clinicians oversee all NFT services. Protocols are developed by our experienced psychologists, taking into consideration your individual circumstances. As well as important mental health conditions, it can be used in the academic and corporate sectors to increase performance as well as in elite sports. DFS offers NFT with biofeedback, heart rate variability and qEEG to provide the best solutions that meet the needs of all our patients.
What is Biofeedback?
Biofeedback is a method of learning how to control bodily functions, such as heart rate, muscle tension and blood pressure to decrease tension, manage anxiety and help with other symptoms that affect daily life. Essentially, NFT is biofeedback for the brain as it is a way of controlling brain activity.
Alongside focused psychological strategies, we offer pro-active solutions to regulate and control brainwaves with EEG biofeedback and neurofeedback. Sydney residents have a choice of several DFS offices in and around the city for an initial assessment and to find out further information about brain training.
Will Neurofeedback Change my Personality?
Neurofeedback trains your brain to work in a more effective manner so that your overall mood and mental balance are enhanced. Thus, it can change the personality traits that do not serve your best interests, such as anger or agitation because your brain will simply learn how to react to certain situations in a calmer, less stressed way.
It does not and cannot change your interests, hobbies, likes, dislikes or who you are.
Does Neurofeedback Have Any Side Effects?
Occasionally, mild side-effects may happen during neurofeedback training, particularly if the session is too long. Side-effects may include tiredness, anxiety or feeling irritable. Some people may experience a mild headache. These feelings typically subside after the session has ended.
More serious adverse effects are likely to be a result of using unqualified practitioners who are not guided scientifically with an qEEG brain map, which is why we have partnered with the experts in this area to ensure our patients receive the safest and best treatments.
If side-effects do occur, be sure to contact our neurofeedback practitioners at our Sydney clinic.
