ADHD

“I can totally recommend Daniel Lane at The Perth Brain Centre. Our son was really struggling with his attention and learning at school, and we knew we had to help him. As a family we have always tried to stay away from drugs if we can, but we were under increasing pressures to medicate him.  That’s when a friend recommended us to see Daniel. From the start it was clear that he was there to help us, and it was reassuring to see so many families in the same position as us. We were really relieved that he took some time to actually look at how our son’s brain was working (nobody had ever done that before) and Daniel clearly explained what was going on. He also explained all our treatment options and how neurofeedback therapy could help. Our son recently finished his treatment and is so much better. Thank you.”

ANXIETY

“We had been really worried about our teenage daughter for over a year. She had been diagnosed with anxiety and had done almost 6 months of psychology, which had helped, but she was definitely not where she needed to be. We had tried medication but nothing seemed to work and she was missing bit of school, just couldn’t sleep and was obviously not happy. We were at a loss. A couple of friends had recommended The Perth Brain Centre to us a few months earlier, and after promising our daughter it was not “just more talking” we booked an appointment. Wow ! We all so wished we had done so earlier. We came in first for the first appointment and a scan and saw Daniel the following week - he was brilliant. He obviously has years of experience helping people just like my daughter and knew exactly what was going on. Daniel showed us precisely where the problems were coming from in her brain. It all made sense. It was such a relief that finally we had found the problem. My daughter completed her training a few weeks ago and is doing great. I would recommend Perth Brain Centre to everyone.”

DEPRESSION

“I’d suffered with depression every since being bullied at school. I’d tried pretty much every medication, seen lots of other doctors, tried counselling and seen 2 psychologists and nothing had really ever helped. I had given up hope after more than 10 years.  My girlfriend persuaded me to see Daniel at The Perth Brain Centre. I was a little (actually a lot) skeptical at first. I had already tried everything I thought, but no-one had ever actually looked at my brain, ever. This is what appealed to me at first. I met with Daniel a few days after I had my scan. It was mind-blowing to actually be able to see how my brain was working ! Daniel took lots of time to explain what was happening. I was impressed that he also explained what all my treatment options were (no other doctor had done this before) and was very happy to answer all my questions. I am just over half-way through my programme and already feel SO much better. I can finally feel my life getting back on track - a big thank you Daniel.”

CHRONIC PAIN

“No-one really knew how much I was hurting before I came to see Daniel. He’s awesome ! After more than 5 years of constant 10/10 facial pain, and seeing countless other specialists I had given up. My pain was so bad, I couldn’t work and the pain-killers I had to take made me so drowsy and foggy I could hardly think and daren’t drive. I had to stop working and was really depressed. I thought my life was over. And then one day whilst I was searching the internet I came across The Perth Brain Centre. I don’t know why I hadn't seen them before. I had a great chat with Daniel on the ‘phone before booking in, he gave me confidence and hope that he could help. I met with Daniel about a week or so after my first appointment and brain scan. It was amazing. Other pain specialists had told me that my pain was coming from my brain, but Daniel actually showed me where it was coming from on my scan! He explained how I could re-wire my brain to get rid of the pain - nobody before had actually told me HOW to do it. My treatment was pretty intensive and I came into clinic almost every day for 3 weeks, but I started to feel my pain reduce by the end of the first week, I couldn't believe it! I finished the course of treatment over 2 months ago, and my pain is still almost 100% gone. Occasionally it comes back a little if I get really stressed or tired, but I can get back on top of it quickly with a few of the brain exercises I have learnt. I stopped taking pain killers ages ago and can now play with my kids. My life is back on track, my head is clear, I am driving and have a job interview next week. Life is looking great ! THANK YOU !!!”

AUTISM

“Every parent of a child with Autism is on a journey, and we thought we had nearly come to the end of ours with our son, who was 12, before we met Daniel. Years of ABA Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy has all helped I’m sure, but we were still struggling with basic problems like his emotional regulation and inability to deal with change on a daily basis. Every family that has a child with Autism knows how much of a strain this can be. Then a friend recommended Daniel. Of course, years of treatments and appointments had left all of us pretty drained, emotionally and financially, but my friend practically insisted that we at least take our son “even just to get his brain scanned to see what what really going on”. What a breath of fresh air ! Daniel is obviously an expert in how the brain works but managed to explain our son’s results to us clearly and simply. He took his time to make sure we understood. I don’t know why people don't use brain scans all the time - otherwise it’s just guesswork. We had learnt not to expect miracles, and Daniel made it clear that he was not offering one. He explained that most of the people with Autism that he sees in clinic improve. We thought about it for a couple of weeks, and decided to give it a go. Our son started his neurofeedback training a few months ago, and after a few weeks we started to notice improvements, little things at first. Now it’s been a while, we have definitely seen changes - our son is much more settled, seems happier and is much better at “going with the flow” the he ever used to. Daniel was right, this isn't a miracle, but after years of other therapies it’s great to see that we’re not at the end of the road yet. Thank you for your work Daniel :-)”

MIGRAINES

“I have always been a “headachy” person, ever since a child. I can remember my mother was the same. I used to get what I thought were just “normal” headaches most days for years, then things got A LOT worse in my ‘teens and I started to get migraines. They were killers - they would start in my neck and then spread into my head and face, concentrating around one of my eyes, it would feel as though someone was sticking a red hot poker into my eye. Agony. Everything would hurt - light, sound, tiny movements, even thinking. I just couldn't think. I’d vomit for hours and hours. I'm not sure what was worse, the pain or the vomiting. I would get them AT LEAST 2 or 3 times per week, which meant I never really recovered from one before another started. I ALWAYS had a headache. In between the pain and the vomiting I just cried. There was no way I could work and as for a social life, forget it. I had seen so many doctors and specialists, had at least 2 MRI scans, tried so many tablets, seen acupuncturists, chiropractors, naturopaths, done every kind of diet and NOTHING had made any difference.  People had told me it was my hormones, my neck, stress, food allergies. I had spent TENS OF THOUSANDS of dollars and everyone just seemed to be guessing. THEN I READ THAT MIGRAINES ACTUALLY COME FROM THE BRAIN !!! I googled “migraine brain treatment perth” and found Daniel at The Perth Brain Centre. I WISH I HAD SEEN HIM YEARS AGO. He explained to me, what I already knew by then, that migraines are brain problems. He reassured me that we knew there was nothing “serious” going on because my MRI scans were normal, but these scans just showed us that my brain looked ok - they didn't tell us anything about how my brain was working. Daniel recommended that I get a scan to actually look at how my brain was working - it was easy. We met the following week and he showed my QEEG scans - it was really clear that Daniel knew exactly what was going on, and it was OBVIOUS to me where they were coming from - you couldn't miss it on the scan ! I WAS SO HAPPY HE FOUND THE PROBLEM ! Daniel explained various possible treatments and we decided on brain stimulation - EXCITING ! I came in every day for a week and by the end of the week my migraines had completely gone and I just had my usual sore head. I did some brilliant relaxation training in clinic, and after another week my normal headaches had almost gone. AMAZING ! It’s been a few months now and I FEEL FANTASTIC ! THANK YOU THANK YOU.”

PEAK PERFORMANCE

“Perth Brain Centre is amazing. I have worked in a very high-pressure environment for years. My job is about making the right decision quickly, and there is always a lot at stake. I have always taken my physical health very seriously - eating the right food, exercising, not drinking (too much !) and had even started meditation. I knew that it was really important to look after my brain too, and I felt that sometimes my memory for some things wasn't as good as I needed it to be. I had also noticed that I was finding it harder to “switch off” at night and this was affecting my sleep. I had also recently noticed a bit of a panicky feeling before giving presentations and this was not like me at all. I was usually a very confident person. A friend of my wife recommended me to see Daniel for advice. It made sense to me to look at how my brain was working - that’s what first appealed to me about the clinic. I also took a cognitive test which showed that my memory was actually above normal, but that my attention wasn’t as good as it should be. I met with Daniel for my results and he explained everything very clearly. He showed me that an area of my brain was over-active and that this was probably causing my “busy mind” and affecting my attention. We agreed to do some neurofeedback training to help get my brain running better, and I also did a biofeedback course as well. I have noticed significant improvements in my focus and memory at work, and feel I can make much better decisions. I can switch off easily when I get home, and my wife has noticed this, and I can get to sleep much quicker. I know the biofeedback course I did has helped my performance at work too - I feel back to my younger self - as cool as a cucumber ! Thank you Daniel. Found the problems, fixed them. Simple.”
