A CASE STUDY
Elizabeth came to our clinic in NYC after having tried many methods to address her Obsessive Compulsive and Post Traumatic Stress Disorders. She wanted relief from feeling anxious, like she was under attack. She also reported poor sleep and at times feeling emotional paralyzed and unable to move forward in her life.
Since Elizabeth began in September, I’ve noticed a remarkable difference in her confidence and overall sense of well-being. She often ends sessions with a calm half-smile. While she is not finished her training I asked her to comment on what changes she’s notices so far, since they have already been dramatic.
Here’s a screenshot of a before and after a neurofeedback session with Elizabeth:

Back then we approached anxiety and depression as ‘mind’ problems, but now, thanks to medical and technological advances in brain imaging, we’ve come to understand how these conditions are created and maintained in large part by habituated neural patterns of the brain. Fortunately the brain is plastic and can re-wire itself but to know what tools work, and why they work. Here's Frank's story of what helped heal his anxiety and depression, as well as tools for all of us to re-wire the stress response. Read more
