Coaching and Neurofeedback
There is no standard answer to this question because everyone’s central nervous system is unique. The number of brain training sessions also varies according to individual needs. Some issues resolve within a few sessions and others that are perhaps more deeply rooted require more time. Having said that, clients can expect SOMETHING to shift within six sessions. It is recommended to do at least ten sessions to make these changes durable.
In the end, the more brain training you do, the more the positive effects will stay with you. Much like learning a language or a physical skill like rollerblading, “practice makes perfect”. The more sessions you undergo, the better your brain fitness.
Changes you experience may or may not be related to the goals you came in with, but generally speaking, any kind of shift is a positive indication that the NeurOptimal® brain training is working as designed.
Specifically, clients describe feeling clearer, calmer, lighter or brighter for a few hours after the session – a feeling that typically will last through the week, from one neurofeedback training session to the next (weekly sessions being the most common). Eventually, this new centered way of being becomes their “new normal”. Only if they get thrown off by a negative event - a bad day at work, chemicals, a knock on the head - might they drop into the way they felt before. But generally, they will not dip as deeply into emotional discomfort and will more than likely bounce back from challenging situations more quickly and easily.
