We work with people with a wide variety of conditions and problems. As a licensed psychologist and practicing psychotherapist, Dr. Henry Srednicki understands how vital it is in certain circumstances that psychological testing takes place prior to and alongside Neurofeedback training.
Psychological, computer based and QEEG assessment provide more specific, more useful data than that acquired from psychotherapy, traditional interviews and school based assessment. Gathering information about abilities, intelligence, personality and emotional state helps guide us towards developing a targeted program of brain biofeedback training and the identification of underlying issues.
This approach is useful for many individuals, including those on the autism spectrum, with ADHD, learning disabilities, depression, memory problems and mood and anxiety disorders.
Dr Srednicki is a certified expert in Psious Virtual Reality Therapy, a technology applied as a therapeutic tool for anxiety disorders and phobias. “With the innovative Psious VR tool used in our center you will objectively know about your progress in your therapy. Virtual reality is validated by over 20 years of clinical research and more than 1500 treatments completed. Psious involves experiencing with virtual reality the things you may fear the most such as fear of flying or public speaking. Biofeedback is also used to keep you constantly aware of your progress.If you are interested in overcoming your specific fears call dr Srednicki and speak to him personally.
Neuroshifter Micro Tesla is a technology that uses ultra-low output pulsed electromagnetic field (pEMF). pEMF provides the brain with information that the brain is then able to use to alter brainwaves. pEMF increases the brains ability to be flexible and adjust into patterns of more optimal functioning, i.e. increases wave activity where there are deficits. pEMF works at an intensity that is much less than what energy a cell phone puts out and similar to what headphones put out. pEMF may be widely unknown, but it has been around for decades and there have been thousands of clinical studies to prove its efficacy and safety. Neuroshifter output is over 10 million times weaker than medical stimulation devices and does not induce a current into the person or de-polarize the neurons.
Acceptance and commitment therapy is an empirically-based psychologicalintervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies mixed in different ways with commitment and behavior-change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility.The objective of ACT is not elimination of difficult feelings; rather, it is to be present with what life brings us and to “move toward valued behavior”. Acceptance and commitment therapy invites people to open up to unpleasant feelings, and learn not to overreact to them, and not avoiding situations where they are invoked. Its therapeutic effect is a positive spiral where feeling better leads to a better understanding of the truth.
The concept of using both Neurofeedback and ACT in parallel is a relatively new one. However, studies have shown that combining them may increase the power and effectiveness of each individual treatment to improve your mental health and treat the problems you’re experiencing, especially where other treatments have failed. Increasing numbers of health professionals are combining these therapies for their patients and we now offer this at the Center for Neurofeedback.
While Neurofeedback trains your brain to have voluntary control over your mood and state of mind, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) teaches you, through discussion, how to recognize and cope with stressful influences in your life. It can help you understand how your thoughts and behavior patterns influence your symptoms, and how to change the way the body responds to anticipated pain.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and, more recently, Neurofeedback, have been shown to make a huge difference to the lives of children and adults living with depression, with emotional and behavioral disorders, addiction, sleep problems and much more besides.

Delivered together, CBT will help you to conceptualize your problems from different perspectives and understand what changes you need to make, while Neurofeedback will focus on changing your actual brain function. The combination of these therapies can bring about rapid positive change, and may enable you to reduce or even eliminate your conventional medication.
