An Addicts Experience
I'm 43 and I've been addicted to pornography for 20 years! I've been in and out of recovery and therapy for the past 10 years with moderate success. I definitely learned a lot of great information and skills that have helped me in traditional therapy, BUT I could never get over the hump and make any real traction with my sobriety.
..[My therapist] recommended that we take a break from traditional talk therapy for a while and try neurofeedback. I was skeptical but kind of desperate, so I agreed. ..after only a couple of weeks, I noticed a big and surprising change at work -one day I had an angry customer and the sale fell through. Normally I'd be primed to act out or get angry myself. But this time was different. I was frankly shocked at my reaction. It didn't bother me at all!
After that I continued seeing more and more improvements in my ability to handle tough and stressful situations at work and in my marriage and personal life. THAT has been the biggest change that I've noticed and because of that, the acting out has naturally become less and less of a trigger and draw for me. I've had the longest stretch of sobriety of my life.
A Parent's Experience
We have been dealing with behavioral issues with one of our children. We have been working on these issues for a number of years, trying many different things. We have always been open to trying anything that might help. In talking with family it was suggested we try neuro-feedback. We did several neuro -feedback sessions with him over the course of a couple of months. During the time we were doing neuro- feedback we still continued with other support as well. We saw huge improvement during those couple of months.
Your path to healing at the speed of thought
Have you tried years of therapy only to keep coming back to the same problems or fears over and over?
Some of our clients are very ‘ seasoned’ in therapy – they have done a lot and have benefitted from it, but there always seems to be some corner that talk therapy doesn’t get to. Many people are not even aware of the unconscious blocks that prevent them from experiencing full relief.
The unconscious brain handles so much of what we do and experience, but is very difficult to get to through traditional therapy methods. Neurofeedback is a safe and reliable way to work with the unconscious brain to “move things” that are blocking your conscious mind.
Rather than targeting specific behaviors or thoughts and trying to change them, Neurofeedback acts as a mirror to the brain.
If you looked in the mirror and noticed a smudge on your face, what would you do?
You would probably remove it.
Neurofeedback works much the same way with the brain. Through the computer interface, the brain has an opportunity to watch itself function and it makes adjustments where it needs to –almost entirely on the unconscious level. That is one of the main reasons we are seeing neurofeedback work so effectively with children and with adults alike. When we’re dealing with the conscious brain, we are also dealing with defenses. There is nothing to defend against with neurofeedback because it is not threatening.
Neurofeedback sessions are neither invasive nor intense – and can even be fun. There are several different forms of feedback you can choose from. You might enjoy racing cars through the desert, or running a jet-ski course as a shark. Some clients like to create art on the computer and some watch a movie (bring a favorite DVD from home or choose from our growing library).
