LENS Neurotherapy for living and learning?



Is it really so astonishing that LENS can help so many areas?


The  LENS approach helps the brain move from "being stuck" in certain patterns of behaviour and as it begins to get
"unstuck", to reorganise itself.


LENS interrupts maladaptive
brain patterns to make way for better synchrony. It helps the brain successfully control unwanted symptoms.



As it makes changes in one area, surprising positive changes can happen in a range of areas.


The LENS approach considers difficulties in a different way from other approaches. Instead of concentrating on specific diagnoses, LENS considers the associated functional areas which need to be addressed.  Have a look at the table and see how they are connected.
