Biofeedback Therapy

This page provides information on biofeedback therapy available at UWF Counseling & Psychological Services. Biofeedback is a free service to UWF students.

What Is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is a self-help technique in which individuals are taught to address the physiological symptoms that are associated with stress, anxiety, and other concerns. This is accomplished by incorporating your breathing, focusing on your heart rate, and changing your thought process to make the necessary efficient adjustments.

Biofeedback utilizes highly sensitive computerized instruments that can let you know when you're stressed or relaxed even when you may not realize it. Specialists in many different fields use biofeedback to help individuals cope with stress, anxiety, depression, anger, test anxiety, and many other concerns.

How Stressed Are You?

  • Do you feel like stress is taking over your life?
  • Do you feel overly tired or fatigued?
  • Do you often feel nervous, anxious, or depressed?
  • Do you have sleep problems?
  • Do you experience anxiety before an exam or when a paper is due?
  • Do you worry about school, finances, or your future?

If you answered 'yes' to any of the above questions, then biofeedback can help you.
