When dealing from dependency and addiction it is important that you become able to correct negative patterns of thinking. Learning how you react to certain situations is the first step in re-training your mind to better cope with thoughts and feelings that you have previously struggled with.
We know that feelings of anger, guilt and shame can also hinder recovery for some people, making lasting change difficult. Our training will help you deal with painful thoughts in a positive way that leads you to improvement rather than relapse.
A benefit of the biofeedback and neurofeedback that we use is that you re-train your mind without the process of discussion that counselling involves. For some, talking about painful memories can be very difficult and our programmes don’t need this to be successful.
We begin by assessing where you are now. We look at lots of indicators like how your breathing, heart rate, temperature and thought patterns change in response to different tasks questions. You’ll be able to see the results on-screen, and we can analyse them together to spot areas for improvement.
Our training will be designed taking all this into account. As you begin to re-train your mind to react differently and to avoid getting into negative cycles you’ll see your results change on-screen. The positive encouragement this gives you will really reinforce your new thinking and help you to keep on developing these your techniques into the future.
