Brain Health Clinics uses neurotherapy to provide drug free treatment for psychological disorders, targeting and treating related brain dysfunction.
Neurotherapy is a drug free treatment that directly targets brain function, seeking to identify and reverse underlying dysregulation. Treatment is based on individualised assessment of brain (qEEG), neuropsychological and emotional function. Neurotherapy works by harnessing the natural plasticity of the brain – its ability to learn and adapt to the world, from childhood through to older adult age. There are many brain networks critical to neuroplasticity, working beneath the mind to shape the content of conscious awareness. Dysregulation of these networks can result from a myriad of factors – such as genetic predisposition, negative life experience, and hindered brain development. Such dysregulation will detrimentally affect how the brain processes our experiences, in ways the conscious mind can’t control. This shapes how we interpret events, how we regulate behaviour, our ability to learn and remember, and the quality of our emotions and feelings. Psychological conditions that can benefit from neurotherapy include: ADHD Concentration difficulties Anxiety and stress Working memory problems Arousal disorders Challenges of autism spectrum disorder PTSD Depression Learning difficulties Drug abuse Neurological conditions that can benefit from neurotherapy include: Neuropathic pain Seizure disorders Adult headache and migraine Traumatic brain injury Hypertension Insomnia Assessment for neurotherapy: Research has now successfully mapped the psychological functions of the various regions of the brain and the tracts that connect these regions together. The workings of higher brain function have also become clearer, involving the operation of local and distributed brain networks as prescribed by emotional needs. This functional architecture is essential for effective information processing and working memory operations critical to conscious awareness. Prior to neurotherapy, the effectiveness of such function is assessed through statistical mapping of the brain’s electrical fields – a process called quantitative EEG (qEEG). Measured dysregulation is matched to symptom and clinical profile to decide on the best neurotherapeutic treatment for the presenting condition. Such treatment usually extends over a number of months. The relationship between neurotherapy and psychotherapy: Conventional psychological interventions involve talk that focuses on beliefs, values, associations and choices – the conscious world of thoughts and images. Neurotherapy focuses on the brain – the physical world of neurons and networks. In many conditions, intervention is needed for both - to resolve both brain dysregulation and the dysfunctional thoughts and feelings that emerge as a result. At our clinic, neurotherapy & psychotherapy work in active partnership. Forms of neurotherapy: Neurotherapy impacts directly on the brain function underlying symptoms. Its various forms are differentially effective across a range of psychological and neurological conditions. They include: Neurofeedback therapy: Operant training of targeted brain regions through biofeedback of brain electrical fields. Requires active client involvement in the training process. Infrared hemoencephalography (HEG): An active client therapy to improve low metabolic activity (hypoperfusion) in underactive brain regions, involving operant training of regional blood flow. Pulsed electromagnetic field stimulation (PEMF): Includes passive therapies that induce very low (micro) targeted stimulation of brain electromagnetic fields via the scalp. This approach seeks to stimulate neural firing in affected regions Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS): Very low level (micro) electrical stimulation via the scalp of underlying brain tissue. Seeks to activate depressed neural firing in affected regions. #neurotherapy #neuroplasticity #ADHD #anxiety #depression #PTSD #memory #pain #autism spectrum #concentration #stress
