NSW Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors

Australian Neurofeedback Institute

The Australian Neurofeedback Institute (ANFI) is a program of STARTTS. Established in 2019, we aid trauma recovery using Neurofeedback and Biofeedback with traditional therapeutic approaches. As a social enterprise of STARTTS, we raise revenue throughout training delivery to continue providing Neurofeedback as a valuable therapy to refugees who cannot afford this treatment any other way.

ANFI has integrated the latest neuroscientific research, cutting-edge neuromodulation technologies and outcome driven psychological interventions to offer the highest quality of care to clients affected by trauma and to the wider public.

STARTTS was one of the first specialised services that introduced Neurofeedback and HRV Biofeedback in working with trauma affected refugees. After more than 20 years of experience in using Neurofeedback and HRV Biofeedback with STARTTS’ clients, we have gained the knowledge and expertise that we can share with other clinicians interested in the interface between mind, brain and body.

ANFI’s purpose

We believe that high quality of care should be available to those in need regardless of their circumstances. At ANFI, we are proud to say that we have two decades of experience integrating neuroscience-driven technology into our clinical practice. We bring together research and clinical practice to ensure that our interventions are evidence-based and at the forefront of the refugee trauma treatment field. We collaborate with research partners in academia, world leaders in mental health treatment.

Our mission is to improve people’s lives. To do so, we facilitate training for clinicians so they can enhance their professional practice and better help their clients through an integrative approach to mental health.

Our vision is to explore different types of neuromodulation technologies that are cost effective and easy to implement into a variety of clinical settings. We work with neuroscientists and neuromodulation technology manufacturers in developing, delivering and expanding cutting edge treatments to improve client outcomes.
