Depression & Anxiety

Embracing Challenges

Each day feels like a challenge – from getting out of bed, to looking in the mirror, holding normal conversations and making simple decisions. Panic and anxiety fill the places where joy and inspiration once were and self-induced darkness overpowers hope. Neurofeedback therapy may be a last resort, but it could be all you need to sleep soundly again, lift your mood, and find a place of peace.

“I’ve suffered from depression and anxiety much of my life. When my husband and I decided to have a child, I chose to discontinue my medications to avoid dependency. We came to Nicole to see what neurofeedback could do. Within a few weeks of treatment, I felt in control of my emotions. The world was a calmer and safer place. My husband, originally skeptical of the therapy, cannot say enough positive things about Nicole or neurofeedback.”

Testimonials

  • "I cannot tell you how much better my daughter is doing!!  She is SO much happier and begun taking strides toward moving forward with her life and good decision.  The difference between this May and last is night and day.  We are so grateful."
  • “Our son was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, and we tried everything...with no results. We decided to give neurofeedback a try. After only 10 sessions, we saw remarkable changes in our son. His moods were more regulated, and he seemed calmer and happier. With time, his sense of humor developed, and he experienced less anxiety in social environments. I can’t say enough about the positive experience we had working with Nicole and utilizing neurofeedback.”

My husband, originally skeptical of the therapy, cannot say enough positive things about Nicole or neurofeedback.”
  • “My daughter was struggling with an eating disorder. She had been in and out of treatment centers, spending as much as six months at a time in a facility. We’d exhausted every ‘trial and error’ method of prescribing medications. We felt hopeless. We lived in a very dark place. We contacted Nicole in a desperate attempt to help our daughter. The results were nothing short of miraculous. Her anxiety and depression are very much under control, and our daughter is reconnected both with herself and with the world. She exhibits confidence and optimism. For the first time on this road to recovery...we have hope.”
  • “When our son was diagnosed with Tourette syndrome, we came to Nicole. We saw amazing improvements in his symptoms, and he was able to discontinue all of his medications. Nicole has an amazing passion for her clients and is committed to helping them succeed in their lives. Her grace helped us walk through a profoundly difficult time.”
  • “My 10-year-old daughter has struggled with anxiety much of her life. Disliking the idea of medications, we took the advice of a friend to try neurofeedback. After six months, we’re truly amazed. Nicole went the extra mile in treating our daughter, as if she was her own child. The progress we’ve made is hard to put in words. Simply, I’ve found hope, and our lives will never be the same.”
  • “With Nicole’s guidance, we’ve seen marked improvements in our child, a nine-year-old with ADHD. We continue to see a dramatic evolution and neurofeedback has helped more than any other method we’ve tried thus far.”
  • “Our 11-year-old was diagnosed with autism and experienced frequent seizures. After neurofeedback, the seizures were reduced in frequency and duration. Our child is happier, willing to do more things, more cooperative, socially engaged, and open to learning and exploring.”
  • “My son came in with a stutter that has almost completely disappeared. His attention has improved, he’s able to focus on schoolwork, and I’ve seen an enormous change in his motivation. To see him proud of himself...there are no words.”
  • “As a 22-year-old man, I came to Nicole for treatment of anxiety, depression, and attention issues. I had tried Ritalin, antidepressants, and other medications in the past. Nothing was as effective as the neurofeedback treatment I received. My life has transformed."
  • “From our first conversation, Nicole believed wholeheartedly that neurofeedback would help me. She is completely attentive and devoted to improving my life. This process is truly amazing and so is Nicole McGuffin.”
  • “This is amazing!  I am trying to make the development team and the first thing that changed for me was I learned how to manage my nerves in between runs.  I learned how to find the optimal state of being ready to race without blowing up from being so nervous.  My sleep got better, my anxiety in general went way down and I feel clearer and able to integrate coaching on a deeper level.  I’m able to integrate my mind and body in a way I didn’t think was possible.  Thank you.”
  • I came to Amazing Brains for Peak Brain Performance Training to help me execute my businesses better. I have businesses in three countries and travel extensively. Before I came, I was exhausted and very very stressed out. What this training did for me was helped me cut out the extra noise and focus. I’m clearer, calmer, sleep better, and execute better. An unexpected benefit was that I feel happier. This is the best self improvement tool I've ever come across.”
