Psychology Practice Brainclinics - Nijmegen (ADHD, Depression, insomnia)


Brainclinics is a psychology practice and research institute, founded in 2001 in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Brainclinics specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD / ADD, sleep-problems, insomnia and Depression. In addition to these specializations we offer regular psychotherapy, including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Social Skills training for children, and the recently initiated screening and intake for prevention of sleep-problems.


The below video will show an overview of the different treatments Brainclinics provides (English version).


ADHD, ADD, sleep-problems, insomnia and epilepsy

If you or your child has ADHD, ADD or sleep problems we offer treatment with neurofeedback. Complaints like these - concentration and / or sleeping problems - arise because the brain is not balanced. Neurofeedback Therapy takes care of the complaints at the source (the brain) and can reduce dependence on medication. The psychologist can help you - through this therapy - to exert self-control on the activity in your brains and learn to use other brain activity. Neurofeedback is an effective treatment method that can produce lasting results, so that medication can be reduced or stopped.

When you are depressed or if you have feelings of depression, we can treat these depressive complaints with rTMS (magnetic brain stimulation) combined with psychotherapy. This treatment is frequently examined and the final results show that there is an effectiveness of 78% after an average of 21 sessions. This depression treatment can be applied without the use of antidepressants or can even work with clients who do not respond fully to medication. rTMS therapy may also be a good addition for those who want  to reduce antidepressants, and thereby prevent relapse. The medication does not need to be reduced before this treatment can begin! Recently, rTMS is also applied in patients with OCD.

Association between ADHD and intensity of sunlight
A study published today in Biological Psychiatry sheds new light on the increasing rates (prevalence) of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, known as ADHD. Children with ADHD have problems with inattention, distractibility, disorganization, impulsiveness, and overactivity. This study found that “sunny” regions with high solar intensity, such as the US states of California, Arizona, and Colorado, and countries like Spain and Mexico have lower prevalence of ADHD.
