Neurofeedback As An Alternative to Medication for Postpartum Depression
Neurofeedback is a safe, holistic form of treatment for depression and anxiety as it works with your brain's natural functions. By encouraging neuroplasticity, clients can expect to feel a greater sense of control over impulsivity and regulation within the nervous system.
Most clients leave sessions feeling relaxed and calm. Over time, the small changes that neurofeedback promotes compile and create lasting changes. Connected Brain Counseling's clients self report a reduction in symptoms between 30-70% over the course of their program with the majority of our clients seeing a 20% reduction in symptom severity just the first 10-15 sessions.
Are There Side Effects of Neurofeedback Therapy for PPD?
Side effects from neurofeedback are uncommon with Connected Brain Counseling, though clients sometimes will report a minor headache or agitation following the session that usually subsides within the next 24 hours.
