At Nugent Family Counseling Center, we offer an affordable Advanced Neurofeedback solution to adults and children. Neurofeedback is a solution that has been proven to work for many (research studies). Individuals who struggle with stress or learning disorders can find improvement.  Individuals who suffer from emotional disorders can use Neurofeedback to reduce the pain and find healing.  Another area that we offer Neurofeedback is for High Performance Training to anyone who wants to become a peak performer in their sport, music, schooling,  or career. Our goal is to help everyone that works with us to function at their optimal level. Part of the goal is to have high quality and healthier lives without the use or need for drugs or psychotropics and reduce the negative symptoms that consume us.


What is Advanced Neurofeedback?

Advanced Neurofeedback is an innovative high-tech brain training solution that integrates qEEG brain mapping, qEEG neurofeedback, photonics, brain entrainment, and nutritional support suggestions to optimize your brain function.

Traditional neurofeedback teaches the brain to change itself  and thereby positively affects attention, mood, behavior, cognition, and more. In simple terms, neurofeedback is positive reinforcement for the brain.

Advanced neurofeedback utilizes the most current forms of neurofeedback and incorporates photonics. The addition of photonics allows individuals to see improvement in a shorter amount of time and/or a greater improvement in the same amount of time. Additionally the incorporation of dietary suggestions continues to enhance the progress.

qEEG Brain Map

Your initial qEEG brain map looks at the functioning of your brain and identifies any areas of instability, over and under arousal/stimulation which may lead to dysfunction, disease, and pain.

Your qEEG brain map report:

o    provides an analysis of your brainwaves in the areas of cognition, emotion, and social behaviors

o    helps identify whether any underlying physiological or metabolic issue negatively affects your brain

o   and is the basis for your custom designed qEEG neurofeedback protocol used during your brain training.

qEEG neurofeedback training optimizes your brain and retrains your brain to reduce unhealthy activity and stay within healthy ranges. Based on operant conditioning, it uses continuous visual (movie) and auditory feedback (movie, music) to reward your brain when your brain is using healthier brain patterns.

Brain Entrainment

During your training, we also use Brain Entrainment to improve the effectiveness of neurofeedback. Photic lights entrain your left and right brain hemispheres separately to produce healthy brain wave patterns.

If needed, nutritional support addresses any underlying metabolic issues inhibiting your brain. It provides the right “fuel” for your brain and maximizes the effectiveness of the training.

As a result, your brain’s plasticity learns how to sustain healthy activity independently and stays within healthy ranges permanently.

Many patients show improvements within 8 to 10 sessions. Their headaches may reduce, they may sleep better, have less pain, have better focus and attention, are less depressed, experience less anxiety and feel emotionally much better. However a minimum of 20+ sessions are needed to make substantial changes and to make healthy changes permanent.

Areas it can help and support 

Neurofeedback therapists believe a regulated brain is more responsive to therapeutic intervention. As a result, neurofeedback has been used as a complementary therapy in the treatment of a number of concerns, such as:

  • Posttraumatic stress
  • Emotional issues
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Intimacy issues
  • Anger
  • Addiction
  • Schizophrenia

Neurofeedback helps the brain regain optimal functioning, and proponents of the approach believe people in treatment can often learn how to regulate their own brain waves.
