Many clients move in and out of therapy reporting surface changes leaving deeper distress untouched. Watch us in exploring how neurofeedback gives us direct access to the underlying nervous system by reflecting the language of the brain back to itself. With a focus on neuroscience, discover how using this direct brain language helps move clients beyond suffering toward a state of genuine wellbeing. Discover how neurofeedback helps:

  • Improve emotional and physiological regulation within the central nervous system (CNS), the body’s global information coordinator
  • Influence the organizing activity of the CNS, improving mood, focus, energy, and chronic issues such as insomnia and pain
  • Interface with the brains’ patterning of old trauma configured in neural networks, supporting reconfiguration of these past events by harnessing neuroplasticity directly



PESI Australia, in collaboration with PESI in the USA, offers quality online continuing professional development events from the leaders in the field at a standard recognized by professional associations including psychology, social work, occupational therapy, alcohol and drug professionals, counselling and psychotherapy. On completion of the training, a Professional Development Certificate is issued after the individual has answered and submitted a quiz and course evaluation. This program is worth 2 hours CPD for points calculation by your association.
