Since neurofeedback involves learning and every person is unique, the type, order and pace of change differs from person to person. Young brains learn much faster than older ones, and a small issue shifts quicker than a big one.
Typically, the more long standing and entrenched the symptoms the more sessions are required. You can expect the gains to be cumulative over the course.
Average number of sessions
The average number of sessions varies depending on the type of equipment we are using in your case.
Based on our 19 sensor 3D neurofeedback equipment, a mental 'tune up' would about a 12 session run. For a good degree of symptom resolution, we recommend a full package of 20 sessions. For Autistic spectrum and severe autoimmune disorders, expect a greater number of sessions with progressive gains over the course.
If you are using our 'Brain Boost' surface equipment, expect 50% to 70% more sessions to see the same results. If using our 'Mini' 2 sensor equipment (the type most often used in clinics), you can expect 4 to 5 times the number of total sessions.

How many sessions are enough?
For most, simply relieving uncomfortable symptoms is enough. Others want to move forward in other areas, or tackle new goals.
Ultimately, self-improvement is a lifelong continuum. How much is enough is up to you.
