Do you struggle with anxiety, stress, worry, ruminating or obsessive thoughts?
Do you feel panicky and have difficulty relaxing.
Does your heart race often?
If you suffer from anxiety, then Psychotherapy and/or Neurofeedback may be able to help you reduce worry, and become more calm and relaxed.
ANXIETY AFFECTS US IN MANY WAYS.
It can cause us to worry repeatedly over daily matters. It can lead us to ruminate about past mistakes or perceived failures. It can cause us to panic, possibly getting panic attacks where we feel our heart racing, body sweating, have shortness of breath, and feel nervous. Anxiety can affect our ability to work productively, to feel comfortable in our relationships, and our ability to sleep and eat.
TREATMENTS CAN INCLUDE A COMBINATION OF THE FOLLOWING:
- Psychotherapy (in person or virtual)
Neurofeedback and Anxiety
Neurofeedback is a form of biofeedback that uses your brainwave data to teach your brain how to control and regulate its stress and anxiety reaction. Biofeedback treatments are one of the most effective psychological treatments to reduce anxiety symptoms. Unlike other forms of treatment which give you tools to manage stress that is already present (i.e., medication and relaxation training), Neurofeedback targets and trains the brain so that it can naturally prevent and manage the brain and body’s stress reaction. That is, it retrains the part of your brain that controls stress itself, so the brain can calm these areas on its own.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH NEUROFEEDBACK
Neurofeedback targets the underlying brain patterns that lead to the experience of anxiety. People with anxiety are often prescribed medication which can help relieve symptoms but can be addictive. The training gives your brain the information it needs to regulate itself so that you feel better. People who have been treated with Neurofeedback often notice very early in treatment that they feel calmer, their body is not as reactive to stress, and they have less physical symptoms of anxiety. Unlike medications, where when an individual stops taking them the anxiety is often still there with Neurofeedback training, your brain gains the ability to regulate itself long term so you are more resilient in how you respond- to stress.
