Neurofeedback For Eating Disorders
Neurofeedback can help train your brain release the perceived control it has over food and weight. Counseling can help you understand why it was so important for you to obsess over food and weight in the first place.
Whether you grew up in a chaotic environment that encouraged unhealthy eating habits, or maybe you developed a negative self image from an older age, Neurofeedback and qEEG Brain Mapping can help you understand how your brain is holding onto patterns that cause you to obsess over food.
Factors That Influence Eating Disorders
Eating Disorders stem from both genetics and environmental factors. Biological factors such as hormones play a role in the development of eating disorders, however environmental factors such as trauma and consistent exposure to images of excessively thin women in the media also impact disordered eating.
Connected Brain Counseling takes a bio-psycho-social approach to treating eating disorders by looking at not only an individual's unique life history, but also their family structure and external factors that can lead to a negative relationship with food.
By treating the brain for eating disorders with neurofeedback therapy, it is not uncommon for clients to notice improvements in other areas of their lives. Addictive behaviors, anxiety, depression and other behavioral disorders may also be positively impacted by neurofeedback therapy.

Feeling enslaved to your body and weight are unfortunately common experiences for women. We are here to tell you that there is freedom in letting go of the extreme attachment you may have to how your body looks.

Research shows that one of the most effective forms of therapy for eating disorders incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT.
