Coaching and Neurofeedback
Guest Blog in Carolina Parent, April 2016: http://www.carolinaparent.com/CP/Neurofeedback-Training-How-It-Works/#.Vw_0e8CECUk.link
After providing neurofeedback to clients with mental and emotional issues for several years, I also wanted to help them make and sustain healthy choices in their everyday life. That is why I became a Certified Health & Wellness Coach through Wellcoaches School of Coaching whose training program is accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF).
With a deep understanding of what it takes to harmonize body, mind, and soul, I love partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process based on their individual needs and desires so that they can make sustainable, long lasting improvements to
their health, feel in charge of their self-change, and find their own answers to a healthier, more mindful way of living.
Coaching clients on their path to wellness and sharing the benefits of neurofeedback is my craft and my passion.

I am a Certified Health & Wellness Coach providing neurofeedback, aka EEG biofeeback, to children
and adults. Having regularly practiced meditation and yoga for almost 20 years, offering wellness
and stress management solutions to others is the focal point of my work.
My own experience with neurofeedback is what inspired me to become a trainer. I do not know of
any other therapeutic intervention that can help a person heal from trauma so quickly and effectively.
It is a gentle and safe approach, yet the effects of brain training can be quite powerful. Just one
session is comparable to hours of meditation. To quote one of my clients' words, it is like a massage
for the brain!
I enjoy working with adults and children. Just as I did, many of my clients come to neurofeedback when conventional treatments have failed. I see women who still struggle with anxiety, depression and/or insomnia despite taking medications or doing psychotherapy for years. Seeing others experience substantial positive changes in health and wellness adds to the miracle of transformation I experienced myself with this process. I also see many children and teenagers with attention deficit (ADHD) and/or with learning difficulties. Understandably, their parents do not want to medicate such young brains and express their relief when they see that it is possible to improve focus and school performance naturally by enhancing neuroplasticity.
In addition to my professional training and qualification as a NeurOptimal® Trainer, I trained extensively in yoga, mindfulness-based stress reduction, and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy in France and in the United States. I find that mindfulness meditation practice is complimentary to dynamic neurofeedback and I apply the principles of this approach when meeting with clients.
