Introduction to Episode

Compassion for Olga’s daughter led to a path of neurofeedback where choices to practice became a no-brainer choice to healing. 

Podcast Episode Summary

Neurofeedback became the no-brainer choice to healing. In this episode, Olga Ward continues her journey of finding Neurofeedback. Olga developed a deeper sense of compassion and understanding when helping her adoptive daughter through her own challenges, big behaviors, and difficult days. The ideal “peaceful home” was out of reach because of the underlying trauma her daughter, and even she herself, was trying to work through. 

After endless therapy, medication, and other modalities, Olga was introduced to Neurofeedback from the therapist she was working with at the time. This was the single most effective tool in helping Olga move through her own stuck patterns. She was so overwhelmed at how effective it worked, she got her whole family to try it. Her son was able to get support with his anxiety. And, her daughter received immeasurable support in working through her startle responses and working towards less reactive and more calm method of showing up. Olga was so impressed with the results, she decided to pivot her career, leveraging her previous education background and offer Neurofeedback. 

Results vary where literature will advise that it takes about 20 sessions for results to be noticeable. Olga has found that many of her clients see a level of results within three sessions. When nothing else has worked, Neurofeedback could be a tool to help guide the brain to healthier pathways. For Olga, it was a no-brainer.

Olga has been practicing neurofeedback now for a few years. If nothing else has worked in your road to recovery from anything from insomnia to anxiety to trauma (and more), she would like to invite you to give neurofeedback a try.
