If appropriate, we may recommend biofeedback to support your neurofeedback therapy sessions.
We will be able to recommend to a suitable therapist, or alternatively, there are a number of low price, high quality portable biofeedback devices on the market.
Our suggestions are:
Heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback works with the variation between heart beats. Bringing the heart variability and breath rythms into alignment helps calm the emotional system. For HRV (Heart Rate Variability) biofeedback, we recommend Emwave2.
Your skin conductance is linked to your state of relaxation or stress. Through learning to control your skin conductance, you learn to control your stress levels (what is biofeedback). For Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) biofeedback, we recommend the PIP.
SKIN TEMPERATURE BIOFEEDBACK
The skin’s surface temperature changes according to blood circulation. During exertion or stress, the blood flow is restricted and the temperature falls; in a relaxed state, the skin temperature rises.
This makes temperature biofeedback useful for stress management, though its most common use is to interrupt the onset of migraine headaches. For skin temperature biofeedback, we recommend the Mindfield eSense
I had two strokes before I came here and my memory, concentration, and my focus and attention span were bad. I couldn’t remember much at all. After a few sessions I started to notice a difference in the way I was at home. After neurofeedback I’m doing much better, I am driving and I wouldn’t drive before. I wouldn’t communicate much and now I get out and go to a couple different groups and go into crowds. I am a teacher and now I can go back to work.
This is just a big thank you! What a remarkable treatment you offer, I have to say that the difference it has made to me is enormous. I genuinely feel much more at ease in myself and all the tension is going in my head and body. Not to mention the increase in my focus both short term and long term. I actually feel like I could make long term plans and stick to them !
I feel like I am more balanced, able to pull back from situations and look at them, look at facts more than focus on what I’m feeling. Little things happen that I react differently to. I don’t notice in the moment but very shortly after, I realise I responded in a different way without thinking about it
This is life-changing for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Thank you. This was a completely different experience to anything I have ever experienced before. I believe there is still a bit of work Neurofeedback wise to do in executive functioning areas and I definitely still experience some things emotionally that I think need work, but I am blown away by the difference.
I have just finished the meat of the first essay of three essays this year, having had two sets of sessions with Brainworks. The experience has been utterly extraordinary. I have loved writing it, I have loved the subject, I have loved reading, analysing what I ve written and writing down my own thoughts. I have understood, digested and focussed. I have completed this in the space of a week and half and loved every minute of it. I still have a lot of editing to do, but I do have the meat and the bones. Not only this, but recently I had a weekends training and I not only enjoyed the lectures, but I was significantly involved in the discussions afterwards and even asked multiple questions. What an incredible difference from before.
