Neurofeedback training is a non-invasive and personalized intervention for enhancing emotional well-being. The training works by targeting specific brainwave patterns that are associated with emotional regulation and resilience. Neurofeedback can be a valuable tool for promoting emotional health and improving quality of life when developed by a licensed doctor for individual needs and goals.

Individual training programs can be used to target specific areas of difficulty people have when it comes to emotional regulation and well-being. Let’s take a look at some of the areas neurofeedback training commonly helps temper.

Emotional Regulation

Neurofeedback can help individuals learn to regulate their arousal levels, which play a crucial role in emotional responses. By training specific brainwave frequencies, such as alpha and theta waves, neurofeedback can promote relaxation and reduce excessive arousal, helping individuals achieve a more balanced emotional state.


Neurofeedback training can help with emotional regulation through various mechanisms including:

  • Specific Brainwave Pattern Targeting
  • Strengthening Neural Circuits & Pathways
  • Improving Self-Regulation
  • Balancing Brain Activity
  • Utilizing Training in Day-to-Day Activities

Enhancing Resilience

Neurofeedback training can strengthen neural circuits involved in emotional regulation, resilience, and coping mechanisms. By repeatedly reinforcing adaptive brainwave patterns associated with emotional stability and flexibility, neurofeedback can help individuals build resilience to stress, adversity, and negative emotions.

Specific Emotional Targeting

Neurofeedback can be tailored to target specific emotional symptoms or disorders, such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, or mood dysregulation. By training brainwave patterns associated with these conditions, neurofeedback aims to alleviate symptoms, improve emotional control, and enhance overall emotional well-being.

Self-Awareness & Regulation Improvement

Neurofeedback provides individuals with real-time feedback on their brainwave activity, allowing them to develop greater self-awareness of their physiological and emotional states. Through repeated practice and reinforcement, individuals can learn to self-regulate their brainwave patterns and emotional responses more effectively, leading to improved emotional self-control and self-management.

Neuroplasticity & Learning

Neurofeedback harnesses the brain’s capacity for neuroplasticity, the ability to reorganize and adapt in response to experience and training. By engaging in neurofeedback training sessions over time, individuals can promote positive changes in brain structure and function related to emotional regulation, leading to lasting improvements in emotional well-being.

Combining Traditional Therapy

Neurofeedback can complement traditional psychotherapy approaches by providing a physiological basis for emotional regulation and enhancing the effectiveness of therapeutic interventions. Integrating neurofeedback with psychotherapy techniques, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) or mindfulness-based therapies, can offer a comprehensive approach to emotional improvement.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Julia W

Teachers made huge comments on his math skills and behavior. I also saw this at home with understanding of what I said to him registering more with him. I saw this in his eyes: recognition. Fewer outbursts of anger.

Anita M

I am extremely happy with my son’s outcomes and feel very fortunate to have encountered Dr. Bonesteel early in my child’s life. This method has dramatically changed his ability to focus and take initiative. I feel confident that my son’s life has been dramatically enhanced. I can’t express my appreciation fully in words.

Mary B

Dr. Bonesteel has masterfully, compassionately, and extremely kindly helped me navigate through a history of childhood and marital abuse, a child with twenty years of struggle with life-threatening physical and emotional illness, extended family discord, and disharmony with my child with severe depression. I am blessed to have found Neurohealth Associates.


Overall, excellent experience. Very happy with Dr B and staff is wonderful. We feel like we have our family life back!


I am very thankful this technology was available for my training. I was extremely satisfied with all aspects of my training protocols.
