Neurofeedback for Professionals

Infralow Neurofeedback is a powerful tool that requires a highly trained clinician who can identify each client’s specific concerns and design a training protocol specifically tailored to the person’s individual needs.

Group Mentoring

As you design an individualized training program and you start implementing and developing it to include all areas to be targeted during neurofeedback sessions, you might find it helpful to receive support and guidance throughout the process. 

 

I have over 14 years of experience in successfully implementing Infralow Neurofeedback in clinical practice and have been teaching and mentoring clinicians in the US, Europe and Asia. I look forward to putting my expertise to good use and helping you advance your clinical skills.

Individual Mentoring

am here to mentor and support you in finding the answers to questions

I am here to mentor and support you in finding the answers to questions about:

  • encountering challenges in implementing NFB into your practice,

  • difficulty making progress with difficult cases with complex clinical presentations,

  • advancing the treatment plan,

  • discussing case studies

  • seeking an idea exchange with a colleague
