Neurofeedback is very effective in calming the OCD brain and reducing the symptoms of obsessive thoughts, fears, anxiety, and compulsive behaviours, and these brain changes are permanent.
The number of neurofeedback sessions required depends on the severity of the person’s OCD symptoms and how responsive they are to sessions.
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive treatment, much like a form of exercise for the brain and is generally considered safe. There are no significant side effects, which when do occur, are mild and short-lived. Common side effects include mild headaches, anxiety, lack of focus, and sleepiness. These side effects can be reported to the neurofeedback specialist who can accordingly modify the treatment.
