Nadia is a cognitive neuroscientist and neuropsychologist working in the field of applied neuroscience since 2005. Nadia’s involvement in neurofeedback started with a stroke rehabilitation project during her studies at the University of Osnabrück, Germany. Intrigued by the positive outcome of this project, Nadia went on to train with Dr Doerte Klein and joined her busy neurotherapy clinic in Hannover, Germany. There Nadia gained valuable experience in designing therapy plans and supervising neuro-training sessions of a wide range of clients presenting with various affective, cognitive and motor symptoms. Following a period of further studies at the Ruhr-University of Bochum and clinical and research work at academic and clinical settings in Germany and in the UK, Nadia moved to the private sector, providing qEEG consultancy and neurofeedback mentoring services for individual therapists and companies and lecturing for the European Institute of Biofeedback and Applied Neuroscience.
In 2016 Nadia founded the Bright Brain Centre London to implement her vision of 100% personalised neurotherapy. Nadia’s unique approach combining neurofeedback training and qEEG-guided non-invasive brain stimulation, her experience, knowledge and commitment have since brightened many brains and changed many lives for better.
