Neurofeedback Learning Centre

Why Neurofeedback at Kampung Senang?
Neurofeedback has been offered at Kampung Senang’s Family Learning Centre since October 2012. This new service for the community was launched at Kampung Senang’s 13th Anniversary Celebrations in September 2012 by the Minister of Education, Mr Heng Swee Keat.

We aim to be the community service provider of neurofeedback therapy for families of average income and the sandwiched generation in Singapore. We strive to improve the quality of life for those who may need this form of therapy but find it too expensive. .

Neurofeedback requires commitment and cooperation from the client. Significant improvements may come about in three to six months — approximately 40-60 sessions, with two to three sessions a week.

Below are 3 true case studies of people we have helped to recover from different challenges:

Tesimonial 1

Testimonial 1: Headches and Poor Sleep

I discovered Kampung Senang’s neurofeedback services because my 4-year-old daughter was attending classes at the Center. So I thought I would give it a try for my insomnia and headaches. My frequent headaches and poor sleep have since eased significantly after just 10 sessions in 3 weeks. I am able to return to work and plan to schedule more sessions with them.

Testimonial 2: Difficulty in Concentrating on Studies

My 10-year-old son, Danny Ong, (real name was withheld for privacy) was easily provoked,hot-tempered and could not focus on his homework. Whenever he was asked to do homework, he would throw a tantrum. Getting him to concentrate was a daily challenge. He was never able to sit at a task for more than 20 minutes. After 15 sessions of neurofeedback, my family noticed great improvement in his ability to focus. He can now sit down for at least half an hour. He is now confident in his school work and can play with his brother with less conflict and is more willing to give in. Neurofeedback has done wonders for him!

Testimonial 3: Tinnitus

I signed up for 12 sessions of therapy, in the hope of getting relief from tinnitus, arising from work burnout 6 months ago. I had constant ringing in my ear and constant headaches, and not been able to sleep well because of them. After a few sessions, I noticed that the ear ringing was not as loud in the day, and I was less irritable. I could get back to my normal business routine and resume my regular business trip overseas. Soon, my migraine also disappeared. Occasionally I still have difficulty sleeping because of some ringing in the ears. I have decided to continue with the treatment because the improvement was obvious — and all within 2 months.

Testimonial 4: Depression, anxiety & anger

As a victim of child abuse, I have had problems with depression, anxiety, anger for many years.After my first Neurofeedack session, I was full of energy yet calm. I slept very well that night, and after every session. My anxiety began to lessen. I used to have outbursts of anger, but not anymore. I still get angry occasionally, but I am more aware and able to get myself under control much faster. I can handle work stress much better too.
After 23 sessions, my threshold for stress has increased. My wife has commented on how calm I am now, and ex-colleagues who have not met me for a year remarked that I am relaxed and looking good.
I feel much happier and more confident now. I always look forward to my sessions. I would recommend Neurofeedback to those who want to improve their mental well-being.

Testimonial 5: Grief & Chronic Fatigue

I was my mum’s caregiver for many years and grieved badly after her demise. My grief increased in intensity with each passing day. After a few months, I decided to seek help lest I slip into depression. I chose Neurofeedback as it’s non-invasive. I also hoped it would ease my chronic fatigue.
My issues began to improve within a few sessions. I was soon able to sleep better and keep my grief under control. I became more positive, confident and assertive after 20 sessions.
I found the service at NLC excellent. The trainers are professional, caring and compassionate. I would recommend neurofeedback at NLC.

Neu-Life Project
In our effort to make the benefits more accessible to the low-income families, we have successfully applied for seed funding from the North East Social Innovation Fund. The Neu-Life project (as reported in Today newspaper) pioneered by us will help 25 children from these families — aged 6 to 18 and who have learning disorders such as autism,dyslexia and attention deficit disorder (ADD) — to get subsidised neurofeedback training over a 6-month period.

What is Neurofeedback? How does it work?
Neurofeedback trains the brain to work better by using feedback from the brain itself. While a person sits before a computer screen, his brain activity is monitored through sensors connected to the scalp. The information collected is converted to subtle disruptions or enhancements in sound, images and even vibrations that give the brain information about its activity through a video game, a movie, or a vibrating soft toy. Through such input, the brain is encouraged to optimize its functions.

The therapeutic use of neurofeedback was discovered in the early 1970s when it was realised through research initiated by NASA that neurofeedback could dramatically reduce seizures. Clinical practice of neurofeedback today has gone beyond theories of science to explain its wide range of beneficial effects, but after helping thousands of people around the world — safely, often swiftly and with benefits holding long term over years — the results speak for themselves.

Neurofeedback is now available in every state of the US where it started, and has spread to many countries in Europe, Australia and Asia. It has been available in Singapore since 1995.

What’s it for?
Neurofeedback is currently best known for helping children overcome learning disorders such as ADD/ADHD.

The following are some other conditions neurofeedback has shown success in the treatment for :

  • Addictions
  • Anger management, tantrums
  • Anxiety, depression, stress, suicidal urges
  • Asthma
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Dementia/Alzheimer’s disease
  • Developmental delay in children
  • Hypertension
  • Insomnia
  • Language learning
  • Migraine
  • Motor and vocal tics
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Obsessive-compulsive behaviours
  • Stress management
  • Stroke recovery
  • Tinnitus

Interestingly, neurofeedback isn’t just for people with such issues. Peak performers such as Fortune 500 CEOS, Olympic athletes, fine musicians and other top-notch professionals use neurofeedback to sharpen their performance and to stay calm and clear-headed under pressure.
