Neurofeedback is a safe, effective and durable method of brain training. Supported by a large body of peer reviewed published research, it is used to correct and enhance brain functioning for a wide range of intellectual, emotional, educational, behavioral, and neurological deficits. It is based on operant conditioning, rewarding the brain for doing better, and, yes, IT REALLY WORKS! Neurofeedback efficiently and effectively exceeds other methods because it goes straight to the brain.
Brain mapping is the quantitative analysis of digital EEG data, or electrical brain waves. Most people are seeking to function more effectively in demanding states such as learning, remembering, reading, solving math problems, processing social information, interacting with others, etc. Therefore, data is recorded in various neurological states such as eyes closed, eyes open, reading, and performing other age appropriate tasks. The EEG data is then converted to a form that can be compared to a typical or normal EEG.
Health coaching operates on the belief that everyone is different! There are myriad diet approaches in the world because no one approach works for everyone. As we grow and age, our bodies change and have different needs to which we must adapt. We focus on getting to the underlying cause of symptoms, treating them through diet and life-style, and preventing further symptoms or illnesses by slowly giving you the tools to take control of your health and life. These tools can be used for the rest of your life to help you determine your body’s needs and to attain and keep balance in your life, even when faced with challenges.
Parent coaching is all about skills. What is social reinforcement and how do I use it? What is ignoring? When should I ignore and when should I intervene? What is time out? When, where, and how long do I use it? What age can I start using it and when do I stop? How else can I improve my child’s behavior? What do I do about screen time? How can I get my child to do homework without a fight? Should I use a formal point system or should I just give attention and rewards? Parent coaching is about tailoring parenting skills and parenting style to the needs of your children, your needs, your logistics and your values.
