Become a NeurOptimal® Trainer

If you are considering becoming a NeurOptimal® Dynamical Neurofeedback® trainer, keep reading this page. If you are interested in a home system, or a system to take on the road, go to the At Home or on the Road page.

Being a NeurOptimal® Dynamical Neurofeedback® trainer is a wonderful, rewarding way to make a living. If you are wondering why, read what trainees have said on the Client Comments page.

Please contact me and we’ll talk about it. I’m going to tell you up front, though, that I have a definite bias toward NeurOptimal® — because is is so effective and so safe.

It’s also a very easy to learn, beautifully designed system. The learning curve is short, especially when compared to other neurofeedback systems, which typically require weeks of training online or on site. With NeurOptimal® you can run your first session an hour after you unpack the box. NeurOptimal® offers great Basic and Advanced Certification courses. You can take them before or after your get your system, whenever works for you. They aren’t mandatory, but I highly recommend them.

We can talk about what comes with the system (everything you need), office furnishings (you may already have what you need), and whatever questions you have, including what it takes to build your business. If you’re local or going to be visiting New York, we can find a time for you to come in and see the system, including having an experience of what it’s like to be a trainee. Or I can refer you to someone near you to get a taste for yourself.

If you have a coaching, psychotherapy, psychiatric, chiropractic, acupuncture, or peak performance business, or other type of work supporting change in people’s lives, NeurOptimal® is very complementary to what you’re already doing.

Because it’s so easy to learn, it’s an excellent choice for anyone who is “technophobic.” (I also have advice on how to become comfortable with technology.)

Starting a new business can be a financial strain. If needed, there are payment plans available to make gearing up as a NeurOptimal® trainer easier for you.

Long before I became a NeurOptimal® Representative, I was sharing freely about NeurOptimal®. Why? Because I love the work, and I love contributing to the expansion of our collaborative, supportive international community. And it’s very rewarding watching new colleagues’ businessesNeurOptimal Bundle grow.

The NeurOptimal® Bundle comes with everything you need to get started. There is a Business Start-up Bundle for those who are ready to start a multiple system business. Some trainers purchase additional bundles to create a rental business – a nice passive income stream.

Interested in financing? Or talking more about what’s possible for you? Please contact me.


I’ve asked some of my colleagues to put into words what their experience has been with being a NeurOptimal® trainer. As you can see, it is very much an international community.

I remember well my first NeurOptimal® training back in 2004: a feeling of coming home. “This instrument will help me and my family — oh, and in the near future also clients — to overcome what blocks us and guide us into a new path,” is what I thought. And so it did. I could not have imagined then that it would bring me where I am today, in my private as well as in my professional life.

I consider it a privilege to accompany clients on their journey for a while, enjoying with them the numerous, sometimes miraculous, changes in their lives. All because of this safe, simple but yet ingenious technology.

I still train myself weekly; and in my daily life I’ve found a blissful peace, feeling very connected to myself, my environment and to life.

David-for-WEBI had been searching for a scientific and objective technology which could help my clients achieve a higher level of flow and function in their life, without always having to go back into the breech of past, unresolved memories and experiences. My work has always attracted all types of people who wanted to begin the process of moving to their next stage, leaving behind that which inhibits our ability to live a fuller and happier existence.

Twenty-two years of working in New York City had led me to seek an approach that encourages the Relaxation Response in the human nervous system, one that is both scientific and artistic, simultaneously. I was told by two friends, who are also colleagues, about Val and Sue Brown’s advancement on neurofeedback brain training; these two friends did not know one another. But when I heard that Catherine Boyer had integrated NeurOptimal® into her work, I was sold. Having worked personally and professionally with Catherine in the 1990s in New York City, I know how sharp Catherine is; and it confirmed that my instincts had found the technology which would allow me to speak the brain’s language, directly improving its health and resiliency, encouraging “it” to do what is most natural for “it,” which is to become more and more efficient and resilient at solving life’s challenges with improved ease and grace.

It has proven to be more that I expected. I see it help my clients resolve overload which prevents them from functioning well, and improves daily life in many ways from school to work to social interaction. Non-aggressive, not protocol driven, an approach in line with current physics, interacting with the brain moment to moment, providing information about its behavior, or electrical usage, all made absolute sense. I simply was not attracted to the other neurofeedback approaches out there when I was doing my extensive research of the field’s history. NeurOptimal® is well worth the investment in yourself!

Having worked in the community sector in a large Australian NGO as a strength-based practitioner, counselor and in leadership, I was always on the look out for what makes a difference to vulnerable clients. This led me to research the latest and most effective technologies for personal transformation, and I could not look past NeurOptimal®, it just made sense – especially coming from the perspective of supporting the brain to self-organize, rather than an expert or protocol determining what a person needs. Receiving our first system in 2010, I could not believe how easy it was to use, and the changes we experienced were telling. We have since introduced this technology into the community sector, run a business, provide rentals across Australia, and support sales and business development. It is a privilege to be part of people’s transformation and the NeurOptimal® family.
