Neurofeedback trains your brain to become calmer, clearer and better able to regulate itself. It is a computerised brain-optimising system that provides your brain with the information it needs to self-correct. Over time, unhelpful coping behaviours can diminish, you may feel less anxious, and you are likely to sleep better and feel more positive. As the central nervous systems quietens with training, you may notice you feel less stressed, less reactive and less susceptible to overwhelm. And with less energy needed to keep your brain operating smoothly, you will have more energy to live your best life!


Neurofeedback is not a medical treatment nor a game, it is a superior form of brain-training that is safe for children and adults, enabling us to train the brain in the most extensive way currently known to neuroscience. During the session, five sensors are attached to your scalp and ears so that your brain's electro-cortical activity can be detected and fed into the computer. After performing some mathematical algorithms, the computer relays this information back to your brain giving it information about its own functioning in real time. This is how the brain learns: when provided with pertinent information, the human organism seeks to 'right' itself. Or, to put it another way, we have an innate drive to self-actualise and realise our own potential. Neurofeedback gives the brain the information it needs to self-correct thousands of times more quickly than it can receive without neurofeedback.

What happens during a session? You don't actually have to do anything in the session – it all happens automatically!  All you do is lie back and relax and listen to the music coming through your headphones. Enjoy some well-earned down time or – if you really can't spare a moment – use the session to check your emails on your phone. Every time your brain is about to change into a state of dysregulation, you will hear an interruption in the music. What you will probably feel is a slow and gentle relaxing of the whole body. Over a number of sessions, the brain is trained to become more flexible, resilient, creative and calm – leaving you better equipped to handle life's difficulties and more able to make positive changes.

Neurofeedback for Peak Performance: neurofeedback is increasingly being used around the world by elite athletes, corporate leaders, artists and performers to improve cognitive and physical performance, increase focus and achieve 'optimal flow' – giving clients the edge over their competitors. It also helps to overcome performance anxiety and the fear behind artist's block. Of course busy Mums and Dads also use neurofeedback to improve their performance so that they become more of a calm presence around their families and less reactive with their kids.

Neurofeedback is also ideal for those who suffer from:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Anger issues
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • ADHD
  • Autism, Aspergers
  • Dyslexia
  • Memory Loss
  • PTSD 
  • Borderline PD
  • Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue 
  • Addictions
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Phobias
  • Lack of self-confidence
  • Allergies

Neurofeedback for Meditation: by training the brain to situate itself more in the present moment, neurofeedback is a wonderful training tool for meditators and for those who have tried meditation before but found it too difficult. Neurofeedback will help your mind quieten more easily so that your meditation practice becomes deeper and more profound. This sets up the conditions for insight to arise. Neurofeedback is like you've been practicing meditation for years: you get all the benefits of meditation – increased calm, wisdom and self-awareness – only vastly sped up. To paraphrase Dave Asprey, the founder of biohacking: it's like practising 40 years of meditation in a few months of neurofeedback sessions!

Who else would benefit from neurofeedback? Basically, anyone who has a brain and wants to optimise the way their central nervous system functions.

A Happy Heart uses NeurOptimal®, the world's leading neurofeedback system. It represents the next level in the evolution of neurofeedback: the only system in the world that uses dynamical neurofeedback to train the whole brain as an integrated system, rather than trying to target specific areas. As one client described it: "NeurOptimal® neurofeedback is neurofeedback on steroids!" 

Inez is a certified NeurOptimal® neurofeedback trainer. She sees clients at her practice in Toorak. The cost is $100 per session.
