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.

Existential-Humanistic psychotherapies emphasize a collaborative approach to the understanding of the client's full experience rather than just the symptom, thoughts or behaviour. Psychological problems are viewed as the result of a restricted ability to make authentic, meaningful, and self-directed choices about how to live. Consequently, interventions are aimed at increasing client self-awareness and self-understanding. The key words for existential-humanistic therapy are acceptance and growth, responsibility and freedom.
