Neurofeedback Reviews and Success Rates
After a single neurofeedback session, there is no "average" experience as each brain is different and the same brain is different in any given moment. Depending on many factors including your current state and how quickly your brain is able to learn new things, there are a range of possible feelings you may have after any given session. Some might report experiencing a sense of clarity, focus, or calm. Others might not notice any discernible change in the moment. What's important is to be in-tuned with your own internal evolution, rather than to compare it to an external standard, even if this can give an idea of progress. Listening to your body and mind is key to noticing how you are benefiting from neurofeedback.
As the brain can create maladaptive patterns in many areas of cognition and emotion, clients will train for a variety of different reasons. The most common are for support with executive functioning and learning, support with emotional regulation, sleep, and brain injury recovery. The improvements are best seen through the shifting of thought patterns, emotions and behavior changes.
Clients often report an overall and vague sense of "feeling better" and then through a more focused look at what is different notice that they are sleeping more deeply, less reactive to stressors, feeling more focus and ease with schedules. For those who are interested in research on neurofeedback, NeurOptimal® results have also been backed up by research which is available to the public on a number of different topics.
When starting with home neurofeedback, it's important to fill out our self-reporting checklist every 10 sessions. Part of success comes from building your awareness about what is shifting and what is still stuck. Using the checklist is a support for creating greater mindfulness. Some of the changes will come from you actively making better decisions and some will be seamless and not in your conscious awareness. Filling out our broad-ranging checklist helps you see the ones you didn't expect!
Below are examples of clients noticing results from one month of neurofeedback training at home.
Success Stories from Home Neurofeedback Clients
This client came in seeking help for his irregular sleep patterns. For years he had difficulties with his sleep patterns. Here's his feedback.
[After 2 session at home]: "I tried it last night and everything went fine. I haven't noticed anything yet but hopefully in a week. I do notice however that I get mentally tired after each session. As if I’ve been studying for a finals exam."
[After 1 week of daily sessions]; "Last night I had 7.5 hrs of sleep which is more than my usual 3-5 hrs. It's been almost 2 years since I’ve had that much sleep."
[After 1 month of training, about 25 sessions]: "Training is going well. I can say that my sleep patterns has improved for the better."

Amazing experience! I felt more grounded, confident and my clarity greatly improved. The team was wonderful and the machine is very easy to use at home. I highly recommend Neurofeedback Training Co. and the NeurOptimal system.
– Wendy, Washington State. Google Review
My husband and I used the system together, and he reported substantial improvements in many areas, as well. It was amazing to experience the changes over time in how we related to each other more positively, patiently, and with more kindness. If you're in a partnership, I would highly recommend training together.
Eileen, Portland, OR. Yelp review
A busy parent to a teenage daughter in New York wrote us this review
I was looking for neurofeedback near me and learned that I could rent a system for home which was more convenient for the whole family. I was a bit concerned setting it up at home but whomever made the instructions, did an incredible job. They are very helpful. I trained together with my teenage daughter and after only using the machine for a week I noticed a change in her behavior. She seemed more focused and organized with school-work. After renting it for 3 months we see a change in mood; she's more engaging in conversations, more cheerful and at ease in social settings. Personally I noticed that whenever I did a session I would wake up in the morning ready to go rather than feeling sluggish and procrastinate tasks. I highly recommend the rental and appreciate all the support from the Neurofeedback Training Co. team.
