The Covid-19 pandemic lockdown required that all our services to clients in our office in Peterborough, Ontario be delivered remotely. The transition to phone and online sessions was not a problem for talk therapy, meditation coaching, and hypnosis; in fact, there is every indication that these services can be delivered remotely just as effectively as meeting in person. However, for biofeedback and neurofeedback, remote delivery can be a challenge.
Fortunately, we have provided home biofeedback and neurofeedback training in the past so we are experienced in this approach. There are many advantages to doing home training. During the pandemic, there is no additional risk of infection if you stay home and receive treatment remotely. Even though we are no longer in lockdown, there are distinct advantages to home training. For one, you don’t have to come to the office or fit into our schedule quite as much. For another, because you have the equipment and software in your home, you can train whenever you want and as many times as you want. Typically, in-office treatments are weekly. Most people simply cannot find the time or have the money to do twice-weekly sessions despite the fact that the effects of training are not seen nearly as quickly when you only train once a week. In sum, remote training is safe, convenient, and efficient.
