Brain Training Sessions

  1. Assessment
    For the assessment, one and a half hours is needed to do brain mapping. To do this we place non-invasive electrodes on your head which is incorporated into a cap to measure the activity in your brain. Analysis and reports are done afterwards. Based on the findings from the QEEG and clinical assessment, we develop a training programme of neurofeedback with counselling or coaching incorporated into it if necessary.
  2. Discussion
    After assessment we briefly discuss the assessment results and your aims. Once the client has left, the therapist works through the information and a detailed report is compiled with the client's aims in mind and sent to the client. In this report we set out a plan for neurofeedback training sessions.
  3. Sessions
    We train up to each person's individual limit. For adults, sessions are typically 40 to 50 minutes of training time. For children, sessions are typically shorter. You perform tasks while connected to a computer. We track your brain activity by means of state-of-the-art software. Feedback on the brain activity (‘rewards’) is given as sounds (e.g. beeps) and visual cues. When your brain hears itself and registers these rewards it auto correct itself.

OUR HISTORY & FUTURE

Jackie Cloete (PhD Counsl)
  
I have been involved in pastoral counselling for the past sixteen years and have obtained my PhD in Counselling from the Trinity International Bible University in 2013.
During all the years that I have counselled people, I have been aware of the necessity to remove any physical conditions which are the underlying issue when counselling people with depression and a general sense of unwell being. It might seem strange to look at counselling from this point of view, but many times the issues that cause people to seek counselling actually has a physical component that, when addressed, makes it so much easier for the client to move beyond the depression, the feeling of being irritated for no apparent reason or even just not having joy and energy.
After my son had a nearly fatal head injury and suffered from pain, memory loss, frustration, irritability and a host of other symptoms, I came across an article on Neurofeedback. At this stage I was researching alternative methods of pain relief as the medication that was prescribed did not alleviate the pain and it aggravated his feelings of being out of control. He was so medicated at that stage that he could not function and had to drop out of school. No amount of counselling could sort out the physical situation.
With more than a little scepticism from my son, we embarked on an assessment and after that the recommended twenty-four sessions. After four sessions he started to sleep better. Still had a lot of pain, but were sleeping without medication for the first time in more than a year.
From there on he improved steadily although he was very tired after sessions. In between sessions we counselled him and helped him to work through the feelings of loss and the life-altering realisation that you almost died.
This impressed upon me the importance of having a tool like Neurofeedback to better help people with seemingly unresolvable (without medication) conditions that would lock them into treatment(s) for life.
I see Neurofeedback as a tool to empower people to obtain the skills to train their brain. Unless there is a really traumatic event, physical or otherwise, it is seldom necessary to retrain a brain once new neural pathways have been established and allowed to mature.
