What if you don’t suffer from any disorders or serious problems in your life but you do want to work on some traits of your personality or mental prowess? Neurofeedback has been repeatedly shown to be successful at helping people achieve such goals.
Core to the success of Neurofeedback in achieving peak performance is the creation of conscious links between physical behavior and brain function. You will learn to manage your mind so that negative thoughts no longer hold you back. While the effects do vary from person to person, Neurofeedback has been shown to improve concentration, attention and memory, help make decision-making, learning and relaxing easier, and can improve creativity, resistance to stress, self-confidence and self-control.
These newly learned skills can be put to work in a wide variety of situations, from pubic speaking to sports, examinations, relationships and overall personal development. The ‘brain exercises’ that Neurofeedback will teach you can be used regularly, at times of stress or in preparation for certain events.
Many of us are put into situations in which we feel we could do better. Neurofeedback can help you achieve your aims and is used by athletes, musicians, artists, business people and many more to help reach new heights of creativity and mental strength in their performances.
One good example is that of the Italian team who won the soccer World Cup in 2006. In the build up to the tournament, the whole squad underwent Neurofeedback training in which they focused on overcoming the stress and anxiety linked to their past failures. Positive imagery and visualization techniques central to brain biofeedback helped improve their focus, concentration and confidence and may well have won them the cup.
