My colleague Mrs. Y quotes her grandmother Mrs. Z. She is 88 years old, and she had her first Neuro Feedback session when she was 86, this is what happened during her first appointments.
"With the loss of my grandfather, she had lost her energy. She was much less spirited. After the first session, she went to the department stores to buy a vacuum cleaner that she carried home in the subway. She didn't really understand what I had done to her, I explained it to her, I'm her little girl and she trusted me. We told her it was going to be good for her, we didn't tell her what it was going to do, so she had no expectations, she thought it was quite nice. Later on she also realized that she was able to distance herself more regarding her family issues and felt less cornered by her problems, she found a new joy in life. Now my grandmother, who had become lonely, invites her neighbors to bake cakes."
When you don't know people, you don't always have to talk to them in order to help them observe their changes. Sometimes I tell people that if they don't want to talk it would be harder for me to put my finger on things and understand the changes they are going through, but it is possible to work that way. I observe before and after changes that can be visible. For example, women who were not at all made up, nor too much into hairstyling, were clean but not elegant, as I see them gradually straighten up, change their haircut and it's quite impressive because they were not necessarily aware of it and this shows an internal evolution.
