How Neurofeedback Works

Personalised Neurofeedback is a therapy shown to help adults and children over 6 years old with sleeping difficulties and issues with attention and impulsive behaviour. neuroCare has the research and tools to personalise neurofeedback to the individual which science has shown to be effective in 3 in 4 cases (see Arns et al. 2012). Neurofeedback is a short-term treatment program with longterm effects. 30 – 40 Neurofeedback sessions are usually needed for the brain to have learnt the new, beneficial patterns. Sessions held at least two times per week. eurofeedback is suited to children and adults who do not respond to traditional medication management for ADHD and sleep disorders.

Neurofeedback from the comfort of your own home

Tele-Neurofeedback

Tele-Neurofeedback is an option for clients who live far away from the clinic or who are in self-isolation. Our Neurofeedback experts can train a friend, family member or caregiver of the client to correctly set up the session with the loan of professional Neurofeedback equipment. Regular sessions (at least two sessions per week) are then scheduled while your trained therapist uses TeamViewer to conduct the Neurofeedback session in conjunction with a Teleconsultation.

Advantages of Neurofeedback

  • Neurofeedback is non-invasive
  • Other than feeling slight fatigue ater a training session, studies report no severe or aderse effects of Neurofeebdack therapy (this is shown in the multi-centre, placebo controlled study by Strehl et al. 2017.)
  • Self-efficacy through active participatoin
  • Short-term therapy programs, usually completed in 2 – 3 month, with long-term sustainable effects
  • Following neuroCare protocols of a detailed pre-assessment, 3 in 4 people who do a full therapy program notice a significant improvement in symptoms of ADHD (see Arns et al. 2012)

Neurofeedback is suitable for

  • adults, adolescents and children over 6 years old with inattention and impulsivity problems (ADHD) and/or sleep problems
  • persons with sub-types of ADHD
  • high performance professionals and athletes wanting to improve sleep and cognitive performance

What is Neurofeedback?


Neurofeedback is a treatment approach which measures brain activity via electrodes placed on the scalp, with activity then visualised on a monitor.  This allows a person to voluntarily control brain activity by influencing the signal on the screen. Over a gradual learning process, the brain is rewarded for changing its activity to more appropriate patterns.

The importance of personalising Neurofeedback


The underlying causes of inattention, hyperactivity or sleep difficulties are not necessarily the same in two people. Because of this we create therapy programs which look at individual brain activity of the person, whether they be a child or adult. This is done by asking each patient or client to do a Quantitative EEG (QEEG) examination with psychometric assessment, to take into account biological, psychological and personal factors.

By doing a 7-day Actigraphy in the beginning as well, we can look at Sleep / Wake behaviours to see if this could explain some of the symptoms we are seeing. From this assessment the therapist will come up with a therapy program that is more likely to help the client (for scientific evidence on this see Arns et al. 2012).
