My not-so-secret coaching superpower is neurofeedback, or EEG biofeedback. Think of it as your brain’s personal trainer. Neurofeedback exercises the neural pathways that allow your brain to build its resilience.
We call it neuroplasticity.
Really, it’s your brain’s ability to deal with
These stuck emotions run just below the level of consciousness, intangible yet often overwhelming. Neurofeedback teaches your brain how to break these involuntary habits.
And in your quiet mind, more subtle thoughts come into your awareness.
You become more connected, more yourself.
You stop ‘over-thinking’ in crucial moments.
You develop greater poise under pressure.
You allow your intuition and inspiration to flow.
Much like physical exercise develops specific muscles, it simply requires time and repetition.
Neuroscience sounds intimidating.
But neurofeedback is a simple process, and completely passive on your part.
Your brain does all the work without you even knowing!
This is how it works:
During a session, I attach small EEG sensors to your scalp using a special paste. These sensors pick up your brainwave activity, and a computer processes them, focusing on the ones that control your core neuro-regulatory networks. Your brain observes this activity as feedback that is embedded in videos (movies, YouTube, Netflix). As the image expands and contracts, as the volume gets louder and softer, your brain learns to improve its own self-regulatory skills.
And all you have to do is watch a screen in warm, comfortable surroundings.
Not sterile or clinical.
It doesn't get any easier than that!

Modern neuroscience has shown us that we have more personal control over our brain than we ever thought possible. We can change attitudes, beliefs, emotional states, and behavior; all by using the power of neuroplasticity. Neurofeedback brain training harnesses the brain’s capacity for change, training your mind so you can operate at your peak. The ability to strengthen your cognitive weaknesses, to re-route thought patterns and break emotional habits can be life-changing. The brain mediates our perception – every wave of emotion, every thought, every sensation you have corresponds to activity in your brain. The brain drives our attentiveness, emotional balance, central nervous system tone, autoimmune function and more. This makes the targeted brain training of neurofeedback relevant to a wide range of people, and applicable to a broad spectrum of conditions."
