Biofeedback/neurofeedback for treatment
Keywords:


Hi again,

I just started seeing a psychologist to treat my severe ADHD - and I met my therapist, she said I have ADHD and anxiety.  She put me on biofeedback for 25 min on the first visit and said this will help me… 

I would love to hear if any of you have had experience with biofeedback and what do you know about it? 

All this is new to me. I am open to hear anything, I just want help and get better and have a good understanding of everything.

thank you

wow, thank you for the response, What you said about your ADHD and hyperactivity and impulsiveness is exactly what I deal with.

I thought bio and neuro were different. My apologies.  I will change the topic then. I know very little and have a hard time really understanding it.

Did you feel a difference or a change the first time or it took a couple sessions?  I am curious. 

I am OPEN minded and want to try what works and do like to hear what things and type of approach works for different people.

what is interesting though, the neurofeedback, is produced through sounds or electrical waves? 
and I am deaf so I can’t hear whats happening or hear the voices of the biofeedback instrument.
