What would you do if you realise that you are not able to help me?

We have a very good success rate and many happy clients, whose lives have been transformed by the neurofeedback and neuromodulation methods we use. However, neurotherapy is not a panacea- it refers to a range of computer assisted neuroregulatory and learning methods, which have various degree of efficacy in different cases. In cases,  in which we realise that we are not able to help, we suggest to the client to see an independent professional or a professional from our network who, in our view, would be in a better position to address their symptoms. We work closely with a neurorehabilitation consulant, a senior neurologist, a psychiatrist, a team of ostheopaths and a nutritionist to provide the best possible holistic care for our clients.
