We arrived in Leanne’s office after a referral from our doctor. My daughter was suffering deeply from seizures, ADHD, and anxiety. At eleven years of age, she was barely able to maintain focus in a classroom. She had trouble making friends due to her anxiety, and she would have break through seizures even on her medication. We were exhausted from changing medications, increasing doses and adding in new pharmaceuticals. Leanne was a breath of fresh air. She was professional, friendly and so caring. She assessed my daughter, and we began treatment immediately. After about 12 weeks, my daughter was almost completely weaned off her medication for seizures. We began to see her anxiety and ADHD subside too. The change was incredible! We are amazed at what neurofeedback has done for our family.
Since working with Leanne we have seen an increase in our daughter’s math computation and reading comprehension. We have also seen an overall decrease in her anxiety. When she starts to become anxious, it is much easier to talk to her and help her to understand and deal with the situations. Along with neurofeedback, we also did a hair analysis which showed a high level of copper. We did a copper detox for 3 months (waiting on results). We also increased her protein intake for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Her teachers said at the beginning of the school year they thought she had girl ADHD but now they have seen an overall improvement in her socially and academically.
Our experience has been wonderful. We do see a change in our son in a positive way. We really saw the most difference the last few weeks of school, but overall this summer he can stay more focused than ever. Leanne has been a blessing. We were scared of the medication side effects so we didn’t want to go that route. I feel neurofeedback and Leanne were the answers to our prayers. Everything our son has gone through in his young 12 years of life hasn’t been easy, but I strongly believe that neurofeedback did things for our son that has changed him for life. I would recommend this to any parent of a child struggling with dyslexia, emotions that run high & low, and for focusing. Working with Leanne has changed our family! Thank you for everything!!!
I now enjoy my granddaughter! I must tell you that until Leanne and this therapy (neurofeedback) I was ill-at-ease spending time alone with my granddaughter and quite frankly did not enjoy being around her. I have always loved her but now we have the relationship that I had always hoped for. A “thank you” seems too little.
Our experience with Leanne O’Neil, INDY Neurofeedback has been very educational and extremely helpful. My son went from severely defiant, non-cooperative, terrible sleeper and an all-around angry person to energetic, creative, helpful, more mature and much happier young man. He’s not perfect but he now teachable, off his ADHD medication and taking half his usual dose of melatonin to sleep at night. I would see glimpses of this person before neurofeedback but now this who he is mostly with only the occasional angry and irrational moments. It has been amazing to watch the changes in him and see him so happy. He’s beginning to work through his problems with his siblings and do chores in a reasonable period of time. I’m so grateful I took the leap and began INDY Neurofeedback for my son.
Our experience with Leanne O’Neil has been very good and positive! We have seen a great improvement with our daughter’s behavior. Leanne is wonderful and her passion for helping clients and families shows in her work. She does a very nice job of walking families through the process and working with them to flexibly schedule appointments. I would surely recommend Leanne O’Neil and INDY Neurofeedback to others in a similar situation. Thank you so very much!
Neurofeedback therapy has made a world of difference. My child had a dull constant headache even on the migraine preventative, and didn’t even realize it until it was eliminated through EEG biofeedback. Thanks so much Leanne! I think my child is much better prepared to handle the academic and social stress of senior year now!
After being in a car accident, I realized that I had developed serious anxiety. I would not leave work if the street traffic looked too heavy, as a passenger I would startle often and when I was the driver I was constantly looking in the rearview mirror to see if I was going to get hit again. Through INDY Neurofeedback I am now anxiety free!
We followed the same path most of the other autism parents do with GFCF, DAN Dr., supplements, HBOT. What really made a difference in our son’s attention span, executive processing skills, and anger management was neurofeedback through INDY Neurofeedback and Leanne O’Neil.
Praise for Leanne! I would recommend neurofeedback therapy to any parent who has a child that is difficult to manage. Our son, adopted at an older age, had a lot of anger issues and adjust difficulties. In just 10 weeks of neurofeedback therapy, his anger has changed from blind uncontrollable rages that could last for over an hour, to a more typical anger pattern for a 12 year old. He does not demonstrate the blind rages and he is able to control and modulate his behavior when he is angry. There has also been an increase in reading comprehension. As a parent, I am particularly blessed by the fact that he no longer pushes me away when interacting with me, even during mundane daily tasks, but he now wants to talk and interact in a more age appropriate manner. He will snuggle up to me when reading and does not mind being hugged throughout the day. Completing this therapy with Leanne has provided our son the ability to relax, focus and interact with others without being in a constant state of agitation.
Our family is so grateful for Leanne O’Neil and INDY Neurofeedback. Our son came to our family through adoption at the age of 14 months. He lived his first months in an orphanage. By age 8, he struggled with ADD/ADHD and ODD symptoms. He was very difficult and it was causing so much hurt and pain in our family. We were encouraged to check out neurofeedback, and we are so thankful we did! Our son was not only able to come off his medications, but he is having more success with school, better success at home, and we feel like we have our family back. Our son has an excellent rapport with Leanne and he looks forward to seeing her. We started neurofeedback after unsuccessfully trying many other things. It has brought healing and hope to our son and to our family. We are so thankful.
When I think back to where we were when we began working with Leanne, we have come so far!
Two days before we started neurofeedback the panic attacks had become bad enough that my daughter was not able to go to school some days, and had to come home from school early on other days. After several sessions the panic attacks were gone and have not come back.
The next hurdle was to get her off of the three antidepressants and one panic attack medication that the psychiatrist wanted to increase in dosage to the point where she would be taking 6 pills a day. She had already gained 40 pounds this year alone, and my fear was that the next thing to come up would be diabetes.
As I type this, my daughter is off of ALL her antidepressants. All the medication from the psychiatrist has been discontinued. She has begun to lose some of the weight, but that may take some effort on her part.
I am so happy that we found Leanne. Teachers at school are telling me they can see a difference in my daughter and I am eagerly awaiting the results of this last QEEG to see how much more progress she has made, and in which areas.
The fact that all this was possible without needles or drugs is nothing short of a miracle to me. The fact that it will not be reversed with time is so important, and encouraged me to start this process in the first place. When you stop a medication you can expect the symptoms to reoccur with depression and anxiety. With INDY Neurofeedback that is not the case, and I don’t know of anything that comes close with these types of results.
A handful of years ago now, I had my first panic attack and it changed my life. I went from being confident and energetic to being depressed and having a difficult time leaving my house. When you lose trust in yourself, when your brain is stuck in panic mode, it is hard to describe how difficult it is to live like that. The things I used to love, like hiking, camping, and socializing became too scary. A panic disorder sends your life in to chaos, and you can’t trust yourself from moment to moment. Should I go to the store? What if I have a panic attack? Should I head out and do something with friends? What if they notice I’m panicking? Should I get out for a hike or exercise? It’s too hard to do that because the out of breath feeling mimics a panic attack and tricks my brain in to thinking I’m dying. Everything you do is colored with the fear of another panic attack. Everything.
When I came to you (Leanne) for neurofeedback I felt I was on the edge of losing my sanity. Every single day I struggled to get up in the morning and make it through my routine without sinking in to panic and despair. I was constantly fighting off panic and trying everything I could think of to get my brain to slow down and my body to relax. Yoga and talk therapy helped to some degree. But I just couldn’t seem to stop the relentless fear of my phobias and of the ever-present terror of having another panic attack.
When we got started with the neurofeedback I wanted so badly to feel better after the first therapy. I wanted relief so badly, and it was hard to give the therapies time to work. Even sitting through the therapies was terrifying to me at times but I hung in there anyway. Eventually, by about the 6-8 mark, I began to realize during the day that I wasn’t spending so much time worrying. Instead of being consumed with anxiety, I began spending more of my time engaging with my family and thinking about other productive things. By the 14-15th treatment, I was definitely noticing improvement. I was still having moments of worry and anxiety, but they would subside within minutes instead of consuming me for hours.
Once I got about halfway through the alpha/theta slow wave therapies, I definitely felt a major shift in the way my brain was working. Memories that I hadn’t thought about for years would appear during the sessions and my dreams at night became full of issues that I felt needed to be processed. It was all a very surreal and profound experience, but it wasn’t traumatic and it was ultimately necessary to my recovery. My anxiety continued to improve during this time as well, with the fear of panic attacks almost becoming obsolete. When I would become anxious, it would pass within a few minutes, and my ability to relax myself continued to greatly improve as time went by.
I feel my neurofeedback therapies including the alpha/theta therapy has helped me to recover substantially from what was a very debilitating panic disorder. My brain works differently, simple as that. It wasn’t magic, and it didn’t happen overnight. It was a gradual process of growing in to a far healthier way of functioning, and I have slowly returned to myself and to the things I love, and I can’t begin to describe how grateful I am. I don’t know where I would be without having received neurofeedback. I think more clearly, and my mind functions in a more calm, healthy manner. I can go out with friends and not even think about having a panic attack, I can drive my car and go out for a long jog by myself without worrying about having a panic attack, which is so remarkable! Getting back outside and doing things I love has given me my life back. No longer do I feel I need to hide in my house. When I have an anxious moment, I know I can relax myself and move forward, which is a far different story than the days when I would begin to feel panic and have to hide in my bed or take medication to calm me, which was a miserable way to live.
I thank you again Leanne for everything you did for me, for being so kind and listening to me talk and for letting me cry. I am so grateful I have been able to receive this therapy and I highly recommend it to anyone experiencing anxiety and depression, and I have to imagine it helps individuals with so many other situations as well.
