Charlotte (not her real name) felt limited by her fear of driving. It prevented her from engaging in many activities and going places that were desirable. Visiting family members who lived at a distance was always difficult for her, and she would often forego the drive, causing her to miss out on family events. As a passenger she also struggled with the stress of riding in the car. Other therapies did not adequately remediate her problem.
Roberta (not her real name) considered neurofeedback because of depression, anxiety and panic attacks that interfered considerably with her life. For many years, despite all the doctors’ attempts to help, medication was not proving to be the answer, and her struggle was getting no better. At her first appointment she appeared sad and with the help of her husband, she communicated how difficult life has been. Because she was unable to stay on task and was easily overwhelmed, she felt she was unable to work. Her depression made driving impossible, and she was very dependent on her husband for most household chores.
Roger (not his real name) was a very irritable 11 year old youngster. He had difficulty cooperating, being compliant, and not being physically or verbally violent. He has been this way since birth. His adoptive parents lovingly accepted him, despite a hostile interuterine life. He was born prematurely of an actively drug addicted mother, and diagnosed with Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD).
Lucy (not her real name), as an intelligent and energetic high school freshman, enjoyed the non-academic school atmosphere more than her studies. She began neurofeedback with a long history of ADHD treatment with stimulant medication. Initially, neurofeedback treatment addressed many areas of ADHD, but she still lacked the academic focus that matched her ability. Her parents expressed concern because she seemed to lack purpose, initiative, motivation and real goals for all things academic despite her ability.
Regina (not her real name), an adult woman, was concerned about the consequences of the many head injuries sustained during her younger years. Injuries from several car accidents and sports injuries were causing her concern. She reports being forgetful, struggling with driving routes, feeling anxious, being impatient, having difficulty staying on task, sleep difficulties, worrying, and difficulty following directions. Feeling helpless and unsure of her future, she was concerned she would develop Alzheimers’ as a result of the injuries.
"Neurotherapy is a breakthrough in psychological sciences. With it I've been able to control my bipolar mood swings, gained more attention of my surroundings, and I've become less depressed. It has also had a huge effect on helping me quit smoking. 80 days smoke free and counting." ~Anonymous, 2014Read More
