What is Biofeedback of the Brain or Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is EEG biofeedback training of the brain. Biofeedback
is really rooted in how we learn. When riding a bicycle, we learn
at first how to balance, steer and pedal. It is overwhelming at
first, but most of us learn how to do this. We get feedback when
we are learning to much which tells our brains, "hey, not this much
leaning" until we automatically stay upright. How did this happen?
Through feedback that we have received through our senses.
our brains can learn how to enter a certain brainwave state when it
receives auditory and visual feedback. Our brains
can see itself in action, in "real" time, it can make changes.
Electrodes or sensors are placed on the scalp to measure the EEG
brainwaves. The Neurofeedback equipment translates EEG
(Electroencephalograph) into moving art and sound. When your brain
is in the zone (what you are training for, the brain received more
favorable feedback. When it is out of the zone, it is less
favorable or interesting. This is pretty universal in that we like
to look and listen to things that are interesting and we are like to
avoid things that are boring.
How can Neurofeedback be helpful?
When you come into the counseling you want to make changes in your
life. You might be struggling with anxiety, stress or depression.
You might have a troubled relationship or compulsion or addiction.
Neurofeedback can help by a process of brain training. Counseling and
talk therapy help make changes by changing thought patterns and behaviors.
Neurofeedback works at a different level by helping you make changes in your
life by training your brainwaves. The brain is an incredibly complex organ
and it has more neuronal circuits than stars in the universe. (put in the

one's life are reflected in changes in the brain.
