At its core, Neurofeedback therapy promotes the biology of learning, and no other brains learn more rapidly than the young, malleable brains of children. Neurofeedback teaches the young minds of children to become more organized, to balance and self-regulate, and to function more efficiently. These shifts lead to vast improvements in focus and concentration, emotional reactivity, learning and retention, and social bonding. Many common problems successfully addressed by Neurofeedback therapy, Psychotherapy, or both include ADHD, learning difficulties, stress, oppositional and defiant behavior, and the social issues attributed to the autistic spectrum. Whether facing problems in the classroom or at home, Neurofeedback can assist your child in their personal development, interpersonal growth, and academic achievement.
Teenagers process the world in a very particular way. As they experience this stage of development with its increase in responsibilities, greater social demands and drastic hormonal changes, they face daily situations that challenge their ability to self-manage and thrive. Neurofeedback therapy has been shown to address many of the behaviors that can impede on one’s ability to thrive during adolescence such as eating disorders, drug addiction, alcoholism, smoking, ‘huffing’, and impulsive or risky sexual experimentation. Neurofeedback is also highly effective in treating various mood disorders, which begin to take root during this time and affect the type of adult a teen will grow into. The greatest benefit of starting Neurofeedback therapy at younger stages of development is the ability to address behavioral concerns and maladaptive coping mechanisms before they become hardwired traits in adulthood. Psychotherapy and Neurofeedback therapy can help your teen be the adventurous, creative, and successful individual they strive to be.
No matter the internal dynamics, families are complex social units. Relationships between each member of the family often depend on the health and self-management skills of each individual person. While parents can feel overwhelmed by the daily juggle of work, finances, play dates, dinner and doctor appointments, children and teens can struggle with school, homework, social pressures, and self-understanding. Regardless, stress is a potent energy that can subconsciously affect all members of the family. This is because we have social brains that constantly respond and adapt to those around us. If one of our loved ones is suffering, we often feel it. Neurofeedback therapy can help parents and kids alike overcome the obstacles that overwhelming stress and confusion create. Psychotherapy can guide families towards healthier coping mechanisms and improved communication. Whether in a single session or a series, internal strife can be resolved and families units can flourish.
While other approaches may have brought minor relief or none at all, the availability of Neurofeedback Therapy in Connecticut has been a welcomed addition to mental health services due to its effectiveness in relieving the symptoms that overshadow your life and create unhappiness.
Neurofeedback therapy can help you retrain your own brainwaves and improve your brain’s natural ability to balance and regulate itself.
