Neurofeedback helps your brain learn to focus and concentrate at will.

A clear and focused mind is crucial to learning and life skills. Neurofeedback concentration training is used by students, businessmen, surgeons, football clubs, Olympic athletes, ADD and ADHD sufferers alike. Being able to pay attention means better organisation and accuracy, fewer distractions, improving social skills by being able to listen attentively to others, and mastering new tasks and material more rapidly.


Many aspects of brain function are involved in concentration and focus. The optimum state needed for hours of classes and meetings is a moderate level of alertness, which conserves mental energy.

A common difficulty in concentration is slipping into ‘idle’ or dreaminess when trying to concentrate. Another problem may be the duration of attention is short – it may be fine for a limited time, but then it slides. When anxious or emotional, attention becomes harder to control – making it difficult to narrow in on the task at hand. The degree of single-pointed concentration can be another problem; a wide focus can lead to distractions and wandering attention.

Using a brain map to identify the areas of concern, we tailor your neurofeedback training according to your precise needs.


ADHD is defined by a cluster of symptoms which may include inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. Though the medical diagnosis is subjective, people with ADHD have specific brainwave differences in the brain areas that deal with controlling impulses and focusing attention (source: NHS).

Though ADHD is still classed as a disease rather than a symptom of brain dysregulation, QEEGs are used as a mainstream medical diagnostic tool (FDA approved) for ADHD in both the USA and Germany.

Important: If you suspect that you or your child had ADHD, please consult your doctor. If you feel that neurofeedback can help, ask your physician; if he or she is unfamiliar with the research, ask them to follow the link below for a full list of studies.
  • Neurofeedback to train and strengthen the brains attention and focus skills.
  • Diet and Digestive health affect brain performance, and have a large effect on concentration.
  • Occasionally, there can be sensory difficulties lying behind concentration difficulties. iLs Sensory Integration helps re-train these sensory skills that may have been missing or incomplete in early brain development – often with far-reaching consequences.
I deliberately did not tell school about (my son's) neurofeedback sessions as i wanted to see if they noticed a change in his behaviour without actively assessing him. Wow! He has won three awards this term for 'amazing contributions in the classroom" "fantastic listening skills" and a physical education award.
With neurofeedback the child is exercising the nerve pathways that control attention and mental processing. As these neural pathways are exercised, children develop a sense of what concentration feels like, and they get excited about it. After practicing these exercises over a period of time, the pathways involved in attention and learning seem to work more efficiently. This enhanced brain activity becomes a natural part of the child's functioning.

The faculty of voluntarily bringing back a wandering attention, over and over again, is the very root of judgment, character and will... An education which should improve this faculty would be the education par excellence.

ADDitude magazine published an interesting piece exploring this very question and noted that, while the studies to-date have not been fully blind studies, neurofeedback training has shown promise to help with some ADHD symptoms.
That being said, if you suspect you or your child has ADD or ADHD, your first step should be to consult with a doctor. You should also share your decision to try neurofeedback training as a complimentary therapy with your doctor.

Neurofeedback results tend to be different for each individual, but they can be long lasting with the right approach to training. Consistent training sessions upfront can help result last longer too.
