Neurofeedback could assist you with depression, anxiety, addiction, including sex addiction, and help you learn how to care for yourself and be more focused and content in your life, more comfortable with “Living In Your Own Skin”, so to speak.
Trouble tolerating feelings is at the core of addiction and other life stressors. Even overeating can have an emotional discomfort driver. Running from our feelings is like skating on thin ice — We know something is wrong, just under the surface. We try to cover up our problems, avoid our problems, blame someone else for our problems, or actually even become our problems.
Neurofeedback may help in teaching you to be with your feelings more easily and to help the brain understand this is what you desire.
Neurofeedback, or as some like to call it, machine assisted meditation, is a unique and effective tool to reduce stress, relax, and practice emotional regulation.
Life Works Recovery provides neurofeedback, along with HRV or Heart Rate Variability training, meditation training and understanding with staff who are or have trained in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction or MBSR in the program developed by Doctor Jon Kabat-Zinn at the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Center.

Neurofeedback can be used with MBSR, HRV training, relaxation exercises, CBT or cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR, and other experiential trauma healing tools. The American Academy Of Pediatrics recognizes neurofeedback as helpful:
“A recent overview of the existing body of literature on neurofeedback research has now led the American Academy of Pediatrics to recognize Neurofeedback, as well as working memory training, as one of the most clinically efficacious treatments for children and adolescents with attention and hyperactivity disorders (ADHD) (Dename, 2013). Neurofeedback has been used to treat a wide variety of other disorders such as insomnia, anxiety, depression, epilepsy, brain damage from stroke, addiction, autism, Tourette’s syndrome, and more (Tan et al., 2009; Coben et al.,2010; Cortoos et al., 2010; Messerotti Benvenuti et al., 2011; Mihara et al., 2013).”
