Neurofeedback helps a growing number of people to lead a more self-determined life - without medication. Operant conditioning helps the brain by training and restoring self-regulation.

For many years, therapists and doctors have been using neurofeedback to treat AD(H)D, chronic pain, and depression. Migraine, autism, insomnia, anxiety disorders, or addiction problems can also be treated faster and easier thanks to the support of neurofeedback.

In neurofeedback, coaches and trainers also find new ways of increasing and maintaining their clients' peak performance. In some practices of our IFEN graduates, for example, Olympic athletes also receive stress and performance training with the help of neurofeedback.

We firmly believe that the neurofeedback certificate will be an important part of the portfolio of many professional groups in the future: occupational therapists, naturopaths, neurologists, psychotherapists, and many more.


We have been one of the leading training institutes for bio and neurofeedback in Germany for over 10 years and attach great importance to transparency and science.

Our workshops are based on international standards and pay great attention to their practical implementation.

Our lecturers are practicing doctors and therapists themselves and can therefore draw on a particularly large wealth of experience.

We want to develop neurofeedback as a method and stay in touch with current research - this is the only way to achieve and maintain high quality standards.

We are at the center of a global network of therapists, doctors, scientists and many other neurofeedback enthusiasts.

We are connected with many international universities and clinics and support neuroscientific and medical research projects.


Origin of neurofeedback

What is the scientific background of neurofeedback? What were the most critical pioneering achievements?


Brain waves give neurofeedback therapists access to the client. Learn about the different frequencies and their corresponding states.

What is biofeedback?

Biofeedback is based on the idea of ​​operant conditioning. This "unconscious learning" forms the basis of all neurofeedback.

EEG measurement

How do you measure a so-called electroencephalogram? What role does it play in neurofeedback?

Neuroanatomical basics

Learn something about the interplay between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, and their effects on our well-being.

What is a neurofeedback protocol?

Protocols are pre-programmed session parameters that provide the framework for neurofeedback training.

Introduction to the quantitative EEG

Learn the basics of advanced EEG analysis, the so-called quantitative EEG (QEEG).

Symptoms and performance characteristics in the EEG

Learn to recognize certain patterns (so-called biomarkers) for peak performance or disorders in the EEG.

Treatment Assessment

Get to know useful and practical checklists with which you can tailor your treatment more precisely to your clients.

Ethical principles & responsible NFB

Learn the essential principles for practicing neurofeedback ethically, responsibly, and within the framework of the guidelines.

Functional neuroanatomy

Get to know the most important regions and areas in the brain in order to localize disorders and diseases better.

Neurofeedback software

Learn how to use BrainAvatar, the most widely used neurofeedback software on the market.
