Neurocounseling is an approach to therapy that uses neurofeedback—among other methods—to regulate and organize the brain's circuits to improve communication and functioning among neurons. It also uses a myriad of therapy methods (such as Neuromodulation) to reprogram and optimize brain operation.



Neurofeedback (NFB) is a computer-aided method in which clients learn to better self-regulate their own brain activity by observing and modifying the effects of the brain waves in real time. By training the brain to produce the wave and the connection that it should.




The craft of altering your mind/brain system is a complex task, as it includes the technical component, the emotional and psychological piece, as well as the art of interpreting data, observing your subjective response and guiding you to land in a safe, comfortable and productive place. 

Developing self-regulation skills could allow you to alter or inhibit the behaviors that put you at risk and cause emotional dysfunction.


NFB is a technique that optimizes brain functioning by shifting your focus of attention from your behavior and the opinion of others to the way your brain and nervous system work.


It uses neuroplasticity brain properties, which allows your brain to unlearn negative habits and replace them with functional, pleasant, and effective new ones. This, in fact, gives you the control back that so many of the emotional reactions that have been taken away from you, including

  • impulsivity,

  • anger/rage,

  • obsessions,

  • fogginess,

  • lack of concentration,

  • lack of motivation,

  • insecurity,

and a long list of undesirable experiences and reactions. 

NFB provides the brain with a mirror of its own function, which eventually "shapes" its activity towards a more desirable, more regulated performance.

That optimization of the functions of the brain is obtained by the feedback sent to you from a computerized game that rewards improvements on the neuropaths used, igniting the learning process. The brain learns to play the game, not the person's cognition, which makes results long-lasting by creating and reinforcing efficient and better functioning neuropaths. 


NFB provides the brain with a mirror of its own function, which eventually "shapes" its activity towards a more desirable, more regulated performance.

Nothing is put on the person.  With the use of the best technology, the rhythms of the brain are identified through an extensive evaluation of the brain and symptoms, and then, protocols are customized in order to re-path the brain, organizing it and creating better communication among all areas.

Neurofeedback has been shown to be effective in treating conditions like:

  • Peak performance and brain optimization

  • Emotional Self-regulation

  • Emotional Rigidity

  • Social Phobia

  • Asperger's Syndrome

  • Bipolar Disorder

  • Anger and over-reactivity

  • Anxiety and stress

  • PTSD and Developmental Trauma

  • Traumatic head injury

  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD)


Some of the benefits of engaging in Neurofeedback training are: 

  • reduced craving (alcohol, food, and drugs), 

  • improved hormone balance, 

  • reduced stress and anxiety, 

  • increased attention and focus, 

  • reduced use of medication for ADD/ADHD and anxiety y/or depression,

  • reduce fear, shame, anger, and undesirable emotions that have become "regular" in the daily experience of life.

A complete treatment is achieved when the therapist also understands how brain disorganization affects the mind, thoughts, emotions, and the interactions of those that live under this maladaptive brain functioning. Therefore, that understanding is capable of guiding the mental process while the biological problems are regulated.
