Neurofeedback is generally considered a safe treatment with no significant, and if any temporary, side effects. These can include anxiety, sleepiness, mild headaches, lack of focus, etc.
Neurofeedback helps a patient with PTSD feel calmer, reduce their constant vigilance, learn emotional self-regulation, improve the quality of sleep, overcome shame and guilt, combat flashbacks and nightmares, desensitize overwhelming and disturbing emotions, and enhance cognitive functioning.
The number of neurofeedback training sessions required depends on the severity of the patient’s condition and their response to the sessions.
