NeurOptimal® is the brainchild of PhD Clinical Psychologists Drs Val and Sue Brown. It is an advanced and automated form of neurofeedback that enables the brain to regulate itself. It is not a therapy, but instead a highly sophisticated brain training that enables the brain to regulate itself with the result of a range of therapeutic, wellbeing and performance benefits.
It is automated and therefore easy to use, yet highly effective and very safe. It can be used with anyone of any age including pregnant women.
Please note that NeurOptimal ® does not directly treat or diagnose any disorder and we make no direct claims as such. Instead, NeurOptimal ® is a brain training that helps your brain to self regulate which can result in significant benefits
NeurOptimal ® is not a replacement for appropriate medical or mental health treatment. It can, however, strongly support a journey back to a resilient and flexible brain, and to a sense of wholeness.
Drs Val and Sue Brown worked in the field of clinical psychology whilst using conventional neurofeedback with impressive results. They gradually concluded that the brain was capable of regulating itself if given the right information, and it could do so holistically and simultaneously (in the old model of neurofeedback individual parts of the brain are entrained by operators who compare the brain to a norm and make judgments about what the brain should or not be doing. ) Once computing power had increased in the 90’s they were able to develop a technology via advanced mathematical algorithms that reflected the brain’s non-linear dynamical operating system. This incorporated the experience and understanding gained during more than 20,000 conventional neurofeedback systems. At first their new neurofeedback equipment was semi-automatic and eventually became fully automatic. NeurOptimal® is unique in its field and is considered to be the most advanced form of neurofeedback in existence.
