The Advantages of Neurofeedback

Our brain is incredibly adaptable. Every day we process and learn new information, creating new neural pathways. This is known as neuroplasticity. Neurofeedback harnesses the brain's natural ability to change to retrain your brain. In neurofeedback therapy for ADHD, your brain is rewarded for changing its activity into healthier patterns. When the brain is better able to regulate itself, this can help you focus when needed during the day and fall asleep and stay asleep through the night.

Neurofeedback is suitable for a wide range of people:

  • Adults, adolescents and children over 6 years of age with inattention and impulsivity problems (ADHD) and/or sleep disorders.
  • People suffering from subtypes of ADHD
  • Performance-oriented professionals and athletes who want to improve their sleep and cognitive performance.

Advantages of Neurofeedback for patients

Sustainable improvements

Neurofeedback does not fight the symptoms, but addresses the cause. It leads to a lasting improvement in concentration and a change in behaviour.

Patients play an active role

Neurofeedback actively involves the patient in the treatment


Neurofeedback is completely pain-free

Without side effects

Neurofeedback has minimal to no side effects. Occasionally, slight fatigue or headaches occur. However, these are not due to the neurofeedback itself but to the concentration during the training.


The therapy takes place in a time-limited treatment period of 25 to 40 sessions on average. After that, no further treatment is necessary

Playful treatment for children

Children enjoy neurofeedback training because they can train while "playing".

Substitution of medicines

Neurofeedback can partially or completely replace medications that have been taken up to now.

Treatment possible without a diagnosis

Even if the diagnosis has not yet manifested, it can be used, because it also serves to improve concentration in general

Suitable for all age groups

Neurofeedback can be used from preschool to adulthood

Scientifically proven

The lasting effectiveness of neurofeedback has been proven in numerous scientific studies

Writing samples - impovements through Neurofeedback

Handwriting samples impressively demonstrate the improvements in performance caused by Neurofeedback. These three children show that training of the slow cortical potentials has not only changed the quality of their handwriting but also the error rate in written exercises.
