What is Neurofeedback?
NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback is a very gentle, relaxing and non-invasive approach that helps to make your brain and nervous system function more efficiently for you. Using advanced state of art technology that is FDA approved, it is an automated form of neurofeedback that enables your brain and nervous system to regulate itself better.
A dysregulated brain & nervous system can change our life experience entirely.
Neurofeedback can help change your life!
Neurofeedback Brain Training as seen in:
Your brain does not distinguish between thoughts and reality. If you are triggered by an everyday event your nervous system will have a trauma response to protect you. The more you experience dysregulated emotions, the more you are hardwiring that response in your brain.
This hardwired response in your brain keeps you stuck in the fight/flight response, not feeling safe, feeling insecure, constantly overthinking, affecting your sleep and draining your energy.
Neuorfeedback – The Game Changer in so many peoples lives!
Neurofeedback is breaking up these hardwired responses in your brain, giving information back to your brain telling it there is a better way to be. There is a better way for you to live your life!
This is called Neuroplasticity. The ability of your brain to reorganise itself and create new neural pathways, helping your brain to regulate itself better. By having a brain that is able to regulate itself better, you no longer get stuck in the fight/flight response, feeling anxious or panic attacks are a thing of the past, you get a better nights sleep, you get through your day with more calm and ease.
You get to enjoy things in your life again.
Welcome to your new Life!
How does Neurofeedback regulate the Brain & Nervous System?
NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback communicates directly with your brain. You just sit back in a comfortable recliner chair, relax and listen to calm soothing music. You will wear three painless ear clips and two small sensors on the sides of your head. These pick up the delicate electrical activity of your brain.
The Neurofeedback software processes your brain’s electrical signals very rapidly and when it detects them moving into an “instability” or “turbulent state” the music pauses very briefly. This is the “feedback” to your brain. By providing feedback to your brain through the music, it helps your brain to self-regulate and correct specific electrical activity of your Brain & Central Nervous System.
Your Brain always want to move back to optimal functioning. However from life stresses, physical, mental or emotions traumatic events,your Brain may not be functioning optimally.
Neurofeedback is helping your Brain to naturally come back in to an optimal functioning state.
Signs of a Dysregulated Brain & Nervous System
- Difficulty focusing or concentrating on tasks
- Poor quality sleep
- Low energy levels
- Your nervous system is easily moved into alert / fight or flight mode
- You become easily overwhelmed
- You feel stress and find it difficult to completely relax
- You get easily frustrated, snappy or reactive to family or work colleagues
- Anxious or panic attacks
- Digestive problems arising from anxiety
- Sensitive to light, loud noise, smells or big crowds
What dysregulates our nervous system?
Life can be challenging at times. How we respond to something happening in the morning, can define the rest of our day.
It could lead to a Stressful day.
A day filled with frustration at family or work colleagues. Easily overwhelmed and lack of satisfaction or joy.
A day feeling calm, focused on what needs to be done, feeling satisfaction and able to drift off to a deep sleep quickly that night.
Our nervous system is designed to protect us from trauma and traumatic events, we freeze, fight or run (flight). In modern day living this mean internalising negative emotions or having defensive responses continuously. We all experience it to different degrees. This hardwiring can be changed to allow our nervous system to fully recover and not be stuck in a cycle.
A Brain and Nervous system that functions better will result in therapeutic, wellbeing and performance benefits in many areas of your life. NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback is an automated form of neurofeedback that enables your brain and nervous system to regulate itself better and change that hardwiring forever.

I decided to give Neurofeedback a go, as I was very low in confidence and used to get extremely stressed about trivial everyday stuff. I did approximately 25 sessions with Micheal and found that my confidence and resilience improved noticeably from when I started. In my experience Neurofeedback is a useful tool in improving your mental health.
