Neurofeedback to help treat ADHD and sleep problems

Sustainable, effective treatment with long-term effect

Neurofeedback is suitable for everyone with sleeping problems, concentration problems and impulsivity and can be applied to children over 6 years of age, adolescents and adults. neuroCare offers a tailor-made, scientifically based treatment so that we can work quickly and effectively.

The treatment period is intensive with 2-3 sessions per week with each session consisting of neurofeedback training and individual therapeutic support. The first improvements are usually noticeable after 10-20 sessions and long-term results are usually achieved after 30-40 sessions.

Neurofeedback has no or few side effects which is an advantage compared to medication.


Tele-Neurofeedback

Tele-neurofeedback is the treatment with neurofeedback that can be applied partly at home, in your familiar environment. Tele-neurofeedback can be a solution if you are unable to travel or if there are other reasons why you cannot come to the clinic for treatment. In consultation with your practitioner, it will be assessed whether applying neurofeedback at home can also be an option for you.

Before this treatment can start, you will visit the practice for an appointment lasting a couple of hours. During these hours, we will teach you or someone close to you, such as a parent, caregiver or partner, how to apply the electrodes for the tele-neurofeedback treatment. The practitioner also installs the program with you on the PC or laptop that will be used for the treatment. This requires a PC or laptop that uses Windows, as well as a good, fast internet connection. If everything is properly installed and working well, tele-neurofeedback sessions can be scheduled for you at home. We schedule at least two sessions with you every week, while your practitioner checks with you online whether the session is being carried out properly and discusses the progress of the process with you.





How Neurofeedback works

Neurofeedback is a treatment method in which your brain receives feedback on what it is doing and a learning process takes place. The treatment period is intensive with 2-3 sessions per week where it is expected that long-term results will be achieved after 30-40 sessions. This intensive approach is necessary for a lasting, long-term effect.

Benefits of Neurofeedback for ADHD and sleep


Safe

Neurofeedback is only applied after an extensive QEEG examination. This allows us to create a tailor-made treatment that meets the personal needs of each client, taking into account biological, psychological and personal factors.


Improves sleep

A good night’s sleep is important for people with mental health problems such as ADHD. By training the brain with neurofeedback, overactive brain activity can become quieter, making it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep.


Minimal to no side-effects

Neurofeedback has been proven to be safe and apart from a little fatigue after a session, there are no side effects to this treatment.


Efficient

The treatment period is intensive with 2-3 sessions per week with each session consisting of neurofeedback training and individual therapeutic support. The first improvements are usually noticeable after 10-20 sessions and long-term results are usually achieved after 30-40 sessions.


Natural learning process

The efficacy of Neurofeedback relies on a gradual and natural learning process in the brain, like learning a musical instrument or sport. Once the new brain activity has been learnt, the positive effects can be sustained. Think of it like a “gym for the brain“.


Scientifically proven

We only apply protocols which have been rigorously tested in science and use technologies that are supported by these studies. By doing a comprehensive QEEG and sleep assessment, our Psychologists and Psychiatrists are equipped with a deeper insight into your sleep activity, ADHD symptoms and can tailor the program to your individual brain activity.
