How can it help?

NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback is a non invasive mental health tool. It allows your brain to function at its best, to help you create a calmer, happier, more harmonious and successful life.

Neurofeedback can help you get the most out of life.

Having problems concentrating at work? Or school? Or just day to day life? This non-invasive training gently brings your brain back to the present. This allows it to come to a place of calm, which improves clarity and focus.

Do you feel overwhelmed? Or suffer with performance anxiety? Or anxiety from study? Or high work stress? Or suffer with chronic pain? NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback helps the brain deal with stress in its many forms, and therefore can help support you manage anxiety. I like to think it is like “meditation on steroids”.

Do you have “brain fog”? Or headaches? Or feel constantly tired? Are your energy levels low? Neurofeedback optimises your brain function. It allows your brain to access everything that is already there, but because of everyday stress and exhaustion, your brain is unable to function at its best. This has a huge effect on your general sense of wellbeing.


NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback Session

Having problems concentrating at work? Or school? Or just day to day life? This non-invasive training gently brings your brain back to the present. This allows it to come to a place of calm, which improves clarity and focus.


Whether we like it or not, we are constantly exposed to chemical and heavy metal residues, tissue acid wastes and stress. Using the relaxing Detox Foot Spa for only a thirty-minute session will visibly remove toxins and waste products from your body – see for yourself!


The simple answer is anyone who wants to function at their peak.

It’s the same as asking who should do daily exercise? Anyone who wants to optimize their day to day performance.

Just like physical exercise is good for us, and eating a healthy diet, so is training your brain. Whether you are an artist, athlete, student, or busy parent, brain training with NeurOptimal® can help create clarity and clearer thinking.

Or maybe you are a person suffering with mental health issues, or a person in a highly stressful work or home environment. Training with NeurOptimal® will help manage your stress levels, in turn helping the brain to find its way back to a more balanced, calm state – the optimum state to achieve our best. The brain controls everything in our body, so training your brain to be functioning at its optimum level with Ballarat Neurofeedback can help anyone.

One member of the family may come for a session, but often the whole family is effected by similar stressors. Therefore training the family as a whole can be very beneficial. Take the system home for a month so everyone in the household can have unlimited access to it over that time.

My name is Jane de Vries. I am a certified NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback trainer and the founder of Ballarat Neurofeedback.

I am passionate about NeurOptimal® and the benefits it can bring. It has been life changing for myself and my children, after experiencing a great deal of family trauma.

Symptoms of a brain not working efficiently

Your brain is capable of optimal functioning, but for most of us our central nervous system (CNS) gets knocked off by the challenges of daily life and the brain operates inefficiently.

Manifestations of a less than optimally functioning CNS can include:

What happens when our brain is not able to smoothly detect change?

We tend to:
– Become rigid
– Become disorganised
– Have consistent complaints
– Have our electrical signal stay in a fixed pattern.

By interrupting that pattern with a millisecond of silence or static (the interruption in the music) the brain will adjust and find a new place of internal comfort.

What is NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback?

NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback Session

NeurOptimal® is non-diagnostic and a totally non-invasive, natural way to train your brain to function at its peak.

The practioner does not influence the process, and nothing is put into the brain. It is a system that observes the brains electrical activity, feeding the information back to the brain when it detects less than optimal functioning. It is considered by many to be the most highly evolved form of Neurofeedback available today.

​After more than 40 years in the neuroscience field and related disciplines, Dr Valdeane Brown and Dr Susan Brown, Zengar Institute founders, have developed a safe, effective system that gives feedback directly to your brain, allowing it to regulate itself more efficiently.

​It is the only dynamical Neurofeedback system in the world. It has helped thousands of people with over 20 million hours of use around the world.

“Zengar Institute Inc. mission is to create, deliver and support the most effective and safe brain training system available in the world today. The purpose of this endeavour reflects the mission of its founders – to relieve suffering.”
Dr Val and Dr Sue Brown


How many sessions will I need with Ballarat Neurofeedback?

The practice itself runs for 34 minutes, plus time to hook up. An appointment is approximately an hour.

You need to remain seated as you are attached to wires connected to the laptop, you can’t listen to anything else whilst the session is running, or talk, but apart from that there are no other restrictions. You can read, text on your phone, do emails, meditate or even go to sleep! The system does all the work, all you have to do is sit and relax.

Neurofeedback is training not treatment. It optimises your brain function and along the way your brain chooses the best path to wellness. Everyone can benefit from this, but there are no guarantees specific symptoms will be helped. It is up to your brain to decide what is best and what changes to make.

No. It is 100 percent risk free, non invasive and with no side effects. We are not putting anything in to your brain or forcing changes, it is totally in control of that itself.
