Here is what one therapist asks patients to consider when he is talking to them about neurofeedback therapy. After he has explained how neurofeedback works, he tells them, "Before you decide to go ahead and begin the training, let me ask you to consider something. Pretend for a moment that we are six months into the future; you have completed six months of neurofeedback therapy and have experienced significant and deeply profound results. In fact, you feel so much different than you did six months ago, that you sometimes feel as if a miracle occurred."

He continues, "Now, if after you have experienced all of these wonderful changes, the ones you are enjoying so fully and completely now, thinking back to how much you had struggled six months ago, and I offered you $4,000 cash - want to buy back all of the results you have achieved with neurofeedback. I will give you back the money you spent and we'll just take away all of the positive changes you experienced. Will you sell the results to me for $4,000?"

He said he has never had someone tell him yes, and that to most patients, having looked at it from this perspective, $4,000 seems like a trivial amount of money to invest in the happiness and increased quality of life that neurofeedback therapy can bring them.
