If you are looking for a place where you or your loved one will be welcomed with open arms, treated with dignity and respect, and supported along your healing journey by knowledgeable and exceptional therapists, look no further, you have arrived home.

Where compassion and acceptance lead every interaction and where individuals can experience counselling with the gentle yet powerful healing that neurofeedback can offer.
If you are not sure if neurofeedback will work for you, or if you have any questions, please reach out! You are not alone!
HOW IT WORKS
Your brain has an organic ability to heal itself. Neurofeedback provides a mirror for your brain to show it what patterns it is using. This allows the brain to correct 'out of shape' patterns and make intrinsic changes.
Your experience will be one of listening to relaxing music and watching visual images on a TV screen. Children are welcome to flip through a book, watch a parents iphone or i pad, color, etc. while listening to music.
Small flat electrodes for electroencephalography (EEG) are placed on the ears and scalp (attached with a soft paste). Our software can 'listen' to the electrical patterns of your brain. Anytime your brain is ready to make a switch in pattern it will be provided with feedback in the form of an interruption through the music and visual images. This feedback allows your brain to change its pattern into one that feels more comfortable.
It is a safe and gentle approach. The software only listens, and interrupts the music as a "cue" for your brain to hear.
Eventually your brain knows that it is switching on its own, and will learn to stay in the more comfortable and positive patterns even after the session is over.
All are welcome here. Mothers who would like a treatment are welcome to bring their infants with them. We are a breastfeeding friendly clinic!
