Q: So how can listening to sounds change my Brain? After all I listen to stuff all the time!
A: It's to do with thresholds and timing! The Brain seems to be hardwired to respond to sound, think of the way music can affect our mood and emotions. However, music conforms to an external pattern and any effects on the Brain are temporary. The Brains 'set point' is not changed. With Neurofeedback the tones you hear are based on and respond to changes in the electrical activity in your Brain. Every time the target frequency crosses a threshold a tone is generated. This is the feedback loop. Timing is a critical factor, the time it takes from an event in your brain to be processed and fed back as a tone is about 0.002 seconds, practicaly instantaneous. The Brain responds to these tones and is encouraged to return to its healthy state.
Q: How do I know how many sessions I need?
A: This is based on individual goals and is one of the things we discuss at the initial assessment.
Q: I am currently taking (name of medication), should I stop taking this before undergoing sessions? If I don’t will my training still work?
A: We are not a medical facility and we never advise anyone to stop taking any prescribed medication. We often have success in the presence of various medications, however we can’t say exactly how being on medication will affect a client’s results. If a client chooses to stop taking any medications they are currently on or if the client chooses to decrease dosage, that is a decision they need to come to with the consent of their doctor. We recommend that the client shares their experience with their GP. We have a letter the client can give to them to help them understand what we do.
Q: I'm Interested but rather nervous, Can I talk to someone who has had this done?
A: Many of our clients are very excited at the changes they have experienced. Contact us and we will do our best to put you in touch with a previous client.
Q: Can you guarantee results?
A: As with any medication or talk therapy the results are can not be guaranteed. Every brain is different, like a fingerprint, so we cannot tell you exactly what your specific results will be. Some people report almost instantaneous relief of symptoms, others experience slower changes taking place over a number of weeks. More than 90% of our clients experience significant improvements with their problems.
Q: Will my results stick? Is it forever?
A: Your problem was most likely caused by some trauma or as the result of accumulated stress. This was not a mistake but was your brain trying to protect itself. You would need to go through the same experiences for your brain to respond the same way.
Q: Can you work with children?
A: Yes, children usually take to the process quicker than adults.
