What is neurofeedback?


Neurofeedback is a process of showing someone their brain activity in order to help the brain learn to change and become more efficient and effective. Neurofeedback uses EEG (electroencephalography) sensors attached to your head to produce an image on a computer screen. The visuals and sounds coming from the computer program will guide your brain and help you work toward your goals – whether that be better concentration, lower anxiety, or better memory.

Neurofeedback therapy will help you feel better, think better, and do things better. Neurofeedback will help you train or re-train your brain. And just like when you learned to ride a bike, they skills you learn from neurofeedback will stick with you.

Neurofeedback Therapy: Treatment for ADHD, Anxiety, Traumatic Brain Injury, and More

If you're curious about neurofeedback therapy and how it can help you, you're not the only one. Every month thousands of people look it up in search engines. Why? Because it's a non-invasive, non-medication therapy that works wonders.


Jessica Harper, the owner of Aspen Valley Counseling, used to get in her car and know she was going to miss the entrance of wherever she was going. Without fail, a chorus of groans sounded off in the back seat of her silver VW bug as her children cried, "Not again!" But after doing neurofeedback therapy, she hasn't missed an entrance. "It's pretty amazing that neurofeedback—something so simple in practice—has helped me in such a day-to-day thing."

In a typical neurofeedback therapy session, a neurofeedback technician places electrodes on a client’s head, and then the computer program creates images on the screen that represent the client’s brain waves. The client will see their own brain activity and learn to chang…

Why aren't things going how I want them to? Hint: It's your cognitive distortions.

Do you hate failing? Are you overwhelmed with life? Do things just never work out for you?

Sometimes life is hard, but sometimes we make our lives harder than they have to be. We do this by holding onto our cognitive distortions.
What are cognitive distortions? The term "cognitive distortion" is a fancy term for messages we tell ourselves that aren't true. Maybe you mess up and tell yourself you're worthless. Or maybe you have three awful things happen in one week and you tell yourself that you're doomed to a life of misery.

But once you figure out what cognitive distortions you have, you can start to see these harmful messages as inaccurate. And it's absolutely liberating when you discover what your cognitive distortions are because you find out that you're the one in control of your happiness, and you can start fighting your inner critic.
What are my cognitive distortions? Here's a list of some cognitive distortions. Once you go through them, you c…

What's my attachment style?

Do you have trouble with commitment? Trusting others? Opening up? Learning about your attachment style could help you overcome those things you're so afraid of.

From a young age, we try to figure out how we fit into our social circles. Based on how our parents or caregivers treated us, we figured out how to interact with people and develop what is called an "attachment style." Your personal attachment style will affect how much you trust and how well you interact with your family members, your romantic partners, and your kids.

Understanding what attachment style you have will help you understand your relationship difficulties and give you a springboard to change. The healthiest relationships are built when both individuals feel a secure attachment to one another.
Attachment styles Secure attachment If you have a secure attachment style, you'll seek out stable relationships and feel safe opening up emotionally. You'll also feel comfortable asking for what you nee…
