About our Founder
Elinor Bazar, MA RCC
Registered Clinical Counsellor
Certified NeurOptimal® Trainer
Elinor Bazar has worked in the fields of health and education for more than fifteen years. She holds a B.A. in Psychology and Religious Studies from Georgetown University, an M.A. In Counselling Psychology from the University of Victoria, and is Certified to offer NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback. Before opening NeurAlive Neurofeedback Centre, Elinor was a child and family focused clinical counsellor and play therapist and was an elementary school teacher early in her career.
Elinor explains her journey to finding NeurOptimal®:
“Four years ago I was on the lookout for more tools to help my family and my counselling clients. When I found neurofeedback, I was intrigued. Something that we could simply and painlessly connect our brains into for training self-regulation was showing powerful results for a range of mental, emotional and behavioural issues in people of all ages. I researched the technology for two months and decided that I’d like to try it for myself. I chose NeurOptimal® Dynamical Neurofeedback®, for its ease of use and safe and holistic approach. Many people were reporting excellent results from using this system, relieving symptoms associated with a variety of issues, like ADHD, PTSD, chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, brain injuries, neurological and developmental disorders and more.
I began giving myself sessions and after a while, without really trying, some of my challenges began to dissolve away. I felt more confident. Clearer. More energized and relaxed. Happier. My nervous system was settling. I no longer experienced regular headaches or heart palpatations, and I could drink coffee for the first time in years without feeling jittery and strung out. It was working.
I began to train my daughter as well. She was dealing with a lot of stress at school, and it was coming out in her body in the form of tics. After 3 sessions, these tics, which were previously happening multiple times per hour, were gone completely.
Shortly thereafter, I was certified in the technology and brought the system to the elementary school where I was a counsellor. I trained 6 students over the course of 3 months. The results were more than promising. We made a video about the program viewable here.”
Four years and many happy families later, NeurAlive exists to relieve suffering and aid personal transformation one brain at a time.
