Our mental landscape is a complex interplay of thoughts and emotions. Achieving happiness hinges on our ability to sustain a balanced emotional state. However, it’s natural to encounter negative thoughts and emotions. The key is not to let these states linger excessively, as they can hinder our return to a neutral, balanced state.
However, we may find ourselves trapped in negative emotional patterns, such as persistent anger, fear, worry, or even states of dissociation and self-sabotage. These can spiral into more severe conditions like depression, anxiety, panic attacks, sleep disturbances, or issues with motivation and concentration. These emotions often operate just beneath our conscious awareness, elusive yet potent enough to disrupt our daily functioning and decision-making.
Neurofeedback is a powerful tool in regaining emotional balance. It trains the brain to recognise and alter these entrenched emotional habits. By doing so, it facilitates a return to our inherent state of contentment, enhancing our happiness and resilience regardless of the external pressures we face. This brain training practice empowers individuals to recalibrate their emotional responses, fostering a healthier, more flexible balanced mental state conducive to overall well-being.
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.
