Note: Michael wrote this to us after another practitioner who was interested in BrainPaint called him to ask him questions about the system.
I just wanted to let you know that I had a delightful phone conversation with Betty Senn last night for just under an hour. What a neat open minded curious adventuresome person. I did not know till the very end of our conversation that she was in her 705…which she informed me after I told her I was turning 65. We went over many many details of working with BrainPaint®, e.g. simplicity of administration client populations, the assessment questionnaire, protocols, fees, insurance reimbursement, and especially some of my cases and the profound gratitude and positive changes my patients have experienced, and how almost unanimously they each look forward to their sessions once they settle into the initial strangeness of this new brain function enhancement which I refer to as”exercise for the brain and HD TV for the mind.”
As I have treated several seniors in their 705 with good outcomes, we also discussed the “brain brightening” aspects of BrainPaint® including improvements cognitively in working memory, concentration, focusing, and attention-span, and also the reduction of “inner chatter” which improves ones sense of being grounded and enhances attentiveness to the environment (a very important issue for seniors). Finally, I clarified as well improvements most patients report in their emotional functioning as evident in enhancing their overall sense of well-being (not elation) as a lifestyle. We both agreed we knew few, if any, people who actually have a consistent sense of well-being as a lifestyle.
Last, I clarified with her my experience with you, Bill and BrainPaint® as embodying the most unusual sensitive- responsive-empathic-relational qualities I have experienced in a business relationship over the course of my 34-year career…pointing out further the immense benefits and support of the weekly teleconferences and supervision offered by Bill. I shared my feelings of immense comfort entering into this new strange unfamiliar terrain of neurofeedback so late in my career at age 63 due to yours and Bill’s availability, ongoing interest and encouragement, including Bill’s almost always immediate responsiveness to troubleshoot any problems or give guidance on cases. His ongoing availability continues to astound me. Finally, it was very reassuring to a have a replacement system sent so expediently when my previous system crashed.
I greatly look forward to our continued professional collaboration, including eventually meeting you and Bill in the future.
