About us


NFB kleinWho are we?

  • The Institute for EEG Neurofeedback – IFEN for short – was founded in 2008 by Thomas F. Feiner. IFEN specializes in the education and training of neurofeedback professionals.
  • Thomas F. Feiner, founder and director of IFEN, is a BCIA-certified neurofeedback expert with over 25 years of experience. He has gained reputation through years of work with well-known neuroscientists and therapists, learning disorders, developing his own programs and his test software CAPITO. This tool was developed to measure cognitive performance and event-related potentials for research and therapy of disorders of the central nervous system.
  • The IFEN has a large network of neurofeedback users who help and support each other.
  • In addition to its core offer, IFEN works regularly with international experts and organizes workshops in various locations around the world.
  • Good to know: In our training courses, we only use approved medical devices that comply with EU regulations. We also use state-of-the-art neurofeedback technology.


Why choose IFEN?

Without a doubt, neurofeedback is one of the most innovative treatments, backed by countless positive testimonials and studies. We are convinced that the Neurofeedback certificate will be an important part in the portfolio of many occupational groups in the future: occupational therapists, alternative practitioners, neurologists, psychotherapists and many more.

Because we want to give as many people as possible access to high-quality neurofeedback training, we have focused on adapting our training concept to the needs of our customers. We call this important step the "IFEN concept" after Thomas F. Feiner.

Our training concept relies on tried and tested training methods based on normal-value databases supplemented by biofeedback. Every client is unique - we know how important an individualized and holistic treatment is for the therapy.
