Neurofeedback Training Malaysia for improving self awareness and confidence


Are you aware of the fact that you may lose your self-awareness under certain circumstances and situation?

According to the previous studies, a neurobiologist from Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot had found that a person starts to lose their self-awareness when they are too focused on accomplishing a complicated or hard task (Vince, 2006).
Self-awareness is one of the mental processes carried out by the brain, specifically in the prefrontal cortex (Lou et al., 2017). Based on the psychological perspective, when a human being has self-awareness, they can perform better throughout their life, have a good practice of self-control and self-confidence (Ackerman, 2021). In other words, self-awareness is a psychological state whereby oneself is able to focus on themselves.
There are people that struggles to recognize their own internal state unlike an ordinary person, which may be caused by various factor such as trauma and pressure. People with lack of self-awareness tend to doubt themselves and have a poor self-control (Jabr, 2012).
Furthermore, researcher had found that Neurofeedback Training (NFT) actually helps in improving self-awareness and self-regulation. For instance, a study conducted by Dupee et al. (2016) on Olympic athletes had recorded the successfulness of 20 sessions of NFT to improve their self-awareness and self-regulation by training to control the level of activation of autonomic nervous system (ANS) and central nervous system (CNS). Hence, a NFT can be one of the solutions to overcome the lack of self-awareness within a person.
