After her first treatment with neurofeedback she began to feel less depressed for a day or so. As training went on, she began to feel less focused on negative thoughts and less “down.” Noel later described her progress as being able to enjoy doing things with her family, as the training effect was lasting longer and longer.

After a quantitative electroencephalogram (qEEG), Noel’s program was modified to personalize the training program for her recovery. Specific brain wave imbalances were addressed, and her progress improved more quickly. Her life at home was getting more balanced and less stressful. At work, she was feeling more competent, cheerful and efficient. Gradually, she was able to reduce and eliminate some of her medications.

Her ability to handle stressors was improving in her interactions at home and at work.  

Neurofeedback helps with depression by rewarding the positive, less depressed waves and inhibiting the waves that are associated with depressed mood. These changes are often permanent reducing the need for medication. Individuals feel happier and lead more productive lives.
