Welcome to the EEG Centre For Neurofeedback

One of our goals at the EEG Centre is to provide clients with information and resources for learning more about Neurofeedback.

Neurofeedback, or EEG Biofeedback, is brain training. It is akin to exercising in the gym, only this training exercises your brain directly, with the objective of improving self-regulation. This in turn helps people function better, sleep better, and feel better. With improved self-regulation, individuals function well out of calm states; they are more even emotionally; and they are happier personally and in their relationships.

Neurofeedback is offered in a variety of health practices. I am neither a physician nor a psychologist. I offer this service on the basis of extensive specialized training and clinical practice for 17 years. Neurofeedback training is neither a medical treatment nor psychotherapy. The type of training I offer is not targeting any particular disorder or condition. It directly targets improved brain function. It is observed, however, that the symptoms of many disorders subside when this training is competently done.

Neurofeedback can teach your brain how to handle stress better, to handle challenges with greater ease, and to improve your performance in all walks of life. It works with children and adults alike and it's easy, as your brain will be doing all of the work! No special effort is required on your part. My clients often report functioning better at work and at home with their loved ones because Neurofeedback has allowed their brains to improve its regulatory capacity, which may also have reduced or resolved many of the symptoms they came in with.

I believe that most people have the capacity to perform at a higher level of effectiveness and are dedicated to helping clients attain their maximum potential.

What do MD's say about Neurofeedback?

Today more and more physicians, neurologists, psychologists, and other health professionals are becoming more aware of the benefits of Neurofeedback than ever before. See quotes from Neurologists, MD's, and psychologists below:

1. Frank H. Duffy, MD, professor and Pediatric Neurologist at Harvard Medical School stated in an editorial in the January 2000 issue of the Journal Clinical Electroencephalography (EEG) that the scholarly literature suggests that Neurofeedback "should play a major therapeutic role in many difficult areas. In my opinion, if any medication had demonstrated such a wide spectrum of efficacy it would be universally accepted and widely used" (p.v.). "It is a field to be taken seriously by all."(p.vii)

2. John Nash, PhD, Psychologist in Clinical Electroencephalography "Neurotherapy for ADHD offers an effective alternate for patients whose treatment is limited by side effects, poor medication response and/or their parents refuse to consider medications."

Significant public health concerns exist regarding our current level of success in treating ADHD. Medication management is very helpful in 60-70% of patients. Side effects, lack of compliance and the fact that stimulant medications cannot be given late in the day limit the benefits largely to school hours. While stimulants improve behavior and attention, less of an effect has been noted on academic and social performance. Continuing concerns exist about long-term safety, and studies on long-term cardiovascular and neurophysiological effects have not been carried out. Neurotherapy for ADHD offers an effective alternate for patients whose treatment is limited by side effects, poor medication response and in cases in which the patients and/or their parents refuse to consider medications. Studies indicate clinical improvement is largely related to measurable improvements in the EEG signature, evidenced by declining theta/beta ratios over frontal/central cortex and/or reduced theta/alpha band amplitudes.

David Sudderth, MD
Migraine, 2nd edition, p. 167 (2000)
Neurofeedback is the "single, most effective, non-pharmacological treatment for migraine."

4. Richard Brown, MD, Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York, NY
"In cases of TBI, neurofeedback is probably better than any medication or supplement..."
