WHAT WE OFFER

Montreal Neurotherapy provides cutting edge evidence based depression and anxiety treatments with comprehensive assessments and personalized treatments plans for each individual. Your background, family history, current support system, co-occurring issues, trauma, baseline functioning, all have to be independently evaluated and taken into consideration with determining the right plan for you. No two people are affected by depression in exactly the same way, neither is there a “one size fits all” treatment to cure depression and anxiety.

Our personalized depression and anxiety treatments offer a variety of solutions that can assist in the following ways:

anxiety

– Symptom management: Depression can come and go but it doesn’t need to rule your life.

– Increase in energy, motivation, concentration.

– Improving relationships and understanding the core of why your depression occurred.

– Focusing on sustainability versus a fast fix.

– Insight and awareness to attenuate further harm to self or others.

– Harm reduction, particularly with the utilization of drugs or other unhealthy coping skills.

OUR TREATMENTS

rtms

Transcranial Magnetic stimulation rTMS

Transcranial Magnetic stimulation rTMS is a procedure in which cerebral electrical activity is influenced by a pulsed magnetic field. rTMS is approved by Health Canada for clinical delivery in Canada.

In treating depression and anxiety, rTMS therapy targets the area in the left cerebral hemisphere just a few inches above the temple and beneath the skull. This area is called the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (L-DLPFC, see photo). The L-DLPFC is readily accessible to the magnetic field and is highly interconnected with limbic structures, which play a dominant role in mood modulation and major depression.

Neurofeedback

Treatment with EEG neurofeedback is based on the theory that once individuals understand their brain activity and learn to manipulate their own brain waves, they will be able to continue to do so, long after the therapy has ended. Some studies have followed patients for as long as 10 years after being treated with EEG neurofeedback and have shown no significant loss of treatment gains.

We apply electrodes to the scalp to listen in on brainwave activity. We process the signal by computer, and we extract information about certain key brainwave frequencies. We show the ebb and flow of this activity back to the person, who attempts to change the activity level.
