Biofeedback, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Biofeedback therapy trains the patient to control their physiological processes, including heart rate, breathing, blood pressure, muscle tension and brain wave activity (neurofeedback)".
Biofeedback commonly includes approaches such as: thermal biofeedback, surface electromyography (sEMG), respiration, Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and skin conductance. Some practitioners provide only neurofeedback (brain wave biofeedback), and some do not provide neurofeedback at all.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a psychological approach that deals with the way in which clients think about themselves, other people and the world. The outside world affects how we think and feel about ourselves and as a result, our behaviour. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can help a person to change the way they think about thoughts and feelings, but it is not like other types of talk therapy.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy focuses on current issues and challenges that affect the client right now. It doesn't consider the past issues that caused distress, but rather looks for solutions that can improve the client's state of mind in the moment. Much of CBT involves looking at thought distortions that can affect mood and are affected by mood, and helps client examine and challenge distorted thinking patters.
CBT can help a range of problems, from OCD, PTSD, bulimia, stress, phobias and other issues that might seem overwhelming to the client, by breaking them down into smaller, more manageable chunks.
