The Therapy/Training process
A therapy programme starts after we have gained the information we need from the QEEG and clinical assessment. A typical session starts with a check in to assess progress and we talk through any counselling or coaching issues that have arisen.
Biofeedback involves placing measuring your pulse of muscle tension and feeding that back to you through a computer. You learn to regulate these body functions. There are a number of biofeedback devices designed for home use. Once you have learned about biofeedback in the clinic, you can often do your own biofeedback at home.
In neurofeedback treatments, placed on your scalp and they feed your brainwave activity into a computer. Neurofeedback involves playing 8 to 10 rounds of a game on a computer using your brain. Neurofeedback is always done in the clinic.
1 session per week (55 minutes): cost: $145.00.
2 sessions per week or 1 double session: $260.00.
More than 2 sessions per week are $260.00 for the first 2 sessions and $120 per extra session.
Low income clients: Brainwise offers reduced fees in some situations. Please discuss your needs.
Length of treatment:
Mental Health, Learning Problems or Brain Injuries
5 – 10 weeks of intensive treatment (i.e 2 or more sessions per week) is recommended. This is followed by another 10 to 20 sessions spaced weekly and then sometimes fortnightly. Some people come top ups once every few weeks or months.
Home training: In some circumstances, it is worth considering purchasing equipment and learning to run your own sessions at home with regular supervision, and/or having Monique run your sessions via video conferencing . Please ask Monique for more information.
10 to 20 sessions over a few weeks is recommended to achieve changes. High performers often find it useful to have a top up before an important event.
