Q&A Associates is pleased to announce the addition of neurofeedback as an additional service for their young adults clients. Neurofeedback is direct training of the brain by which the brain learns to function more efficiently. Neurofeedback is an effective intervention for people struggling with ADHD/ADD, Autism, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Depression, Addiction, Anxiety, PTSD and Sleep Disorders.
Q&A has partnered with Symmetry Neuro-Pathway Training to include this valuable resource within the program structure. Symmetry Neuro-Pathway training utilizes the brain’s own remarkable capacity to develop and flourish via non-invasive sessions which take the client through a guided process of sight and sound that prompts the brain to reconfigure and ignite new connections. Neurofeedback is backed by over 50 years of research, and the data confirms the success of this approach for assisting participants to develop better emotional and cognitive regulation.
Four members of the Q&A team have been trained to provide this service. Kelly Gooding, BSW, Director of Cabin Mountain Living Center, Michael Anderson, MSW, Director of Applewood Transitions, Marci Jones, CLC, Lead Life Coach, and Keith Bishop, CLC, Chief Operating Officer, all completed an initial training with Dianne Kosto, Owner and CEO of Symmetry Neuro-Pathway Training. All four team members are also participating in ongoing training and coaching with Dianne as this service is being implemented.
“I am very excited to include this opportunity to our current and incoming young adult clients,” said Angie Shockley, Founder and CEO of Q&A Associates. “Most of our young adults are dealing with high levels of anxiety, so adding Neurofeedback to our program services allows them an additional option for calming the central nervous system and retraining the brain, creating the space and capacity to make better decisions - responding with thought, rather than reacting from emotion.”
