We know that anxiety is not something that you can just avoid or that will just go away!
Anxiety disorders are very real illnesses that affect approximately 40 million American adults. Today more than 18% of the adult population in America struggles with one or sometimes multiple disorders. There is a wide range of issues as a result of or simultaneously with anxiety, for example:
Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCD)
Specific and Social Phobias
In addition, many of our therapists are trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and supervise Neurofeedback. These are highly specialized and also researched treatment approach to anxiety.
Neurofeedback puts the individual in charge of their mental state. In other words, gives the patient the ability to manage and control their brain activity. For that reason, neurofeedback therapy for anxiety will allow the client to learn how to shift their high ‘beta’ waves to the relaxed ‘alpha’ and ‘theta’ waves.
Furthermore, neurofeedback can assist in allowing the client to take control of their own thoughts and emotions. Allowing individuals to no longer suffer from irrational feelings or sensations of defeat. By the shifting of brainwaves, the individual can determine what their reactions will be to the emotions they are feeling. This is the primary goal and accomplishment of neurofeedback training for those who suffer any of these disorders.
Neurofeedback is the most empowering tool for individuals who suffer from any type of anxiety.
