What is Neurofeedback?

Dynamical Neurofeedback® is a technology developed by Zengar Institute and used in its NeurOptimal® neurofeedback training systems. Instead of providing specific “direction”, Dynamical Neurofeedback® is designed to take advantage of the brain’s natural learning processes by encouraging it to function as originally designed. NeurOptimal®’s neurofeedback trainers then simply promote and facilitate the brain’s natural tendency toward self-regulation, resilience and flexibility. (

Is Neurofeedback right for me?

What should I expect?

Neurofeedback therapy can be right for everyone.  From dealing with depression or anxiety, to improving your focus and concentration during your golf game, Neurofeedback trains the brain to work in a more efficient manner.  Some people who seek neurofeedback training note some of the following as being stressors: irritability, not being able to turn your mind off, physical tension, feeling uncomfortable in your own skin, nightmares, brain fog, hypervigilance, unstable mood, depression/sadness, inattention, insomnia, lack of safety, low self-worth and emotional reactivity. 

Common reasons to train with Neurofeedback include:  

  • ​concussion

  • attention, focus and behaviour problems in school or at work

  • improvements in athletic performance

  • improvements to executive functioning, memory and decision making

  • professional improvement

  • sleep quality

  • addictions

  • cognitive decline and aging

  • anxiety

  • depression

  • childhood trauma and PTSD

In my practice I use the NeurOptimal® system.  A session is booked for 50 minutes, at the start, we discuss some goals and do a check in, then set up for the session.  A NeurOptimal® session lasts for 33 minutes.  During this time you'll sit back in a comfortable chair and watch a relaxing display of graphics.  After the 33 minutes we have a short debreif and you've completed your session.  Generally about 10 sessions are enough to notice a significant change, though some people have noticed results in as few as 5 and sometimes prefer 20 or more sessions.

For Deaf and Hard of Hearing clients, we adapt the visual input and clients can choose to hold a speaker to feel the vibrations if they choose.

The cost is $140 per session and can be reimbursed by extended health benefits if your plan covers RCC or CCC designations.
