OUR CARING NEUROFEEDBACK TRAINERS

Our team of trainers is made up of dynamic people, each holding at least a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology; most of them are currently pursuing graduate studies in psychology or neurosciences. Our founding neuropsychologist, Dr. Johanne Lévesque, trains all her trainers in compliance with the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance’s pre-requisites. In addition, we provide our team with ongoing education as it relates, in particular, with scientific literature on biofeedback and neurofeedback regularly published by researchers and clinicians worldwide. Apart from being highly competent from the technical and clinical standpoints, our trainers are hand-picked based on personal qualities consistent with our firm’s philosophy. In this light, we favour people who are welcoming, empathetic, dynamic and thorough.

DRE JOHANNE LÉVESQUE

Our Founding Neuropsychologist

DRE JOHANNE LÉVESQUE

Our Founding Neuropsychologist

Dr. Johanne Lévesque, Neuropsychologist, initiated neurofeedback in Quebec in 2002, with support from the Fondation Lucie et André Chagnon, as part of her post-doctorate project carried out at Sainte-Justine Hospital’s research centre. In fact, this project earned her an international award granted by the Foundation for Neurofeedback and Applied Neuroscience, owing to the substantial breakthroughs triggered by this project in the field of neuromodulation. Since then, she has never ceased to perfect her skills and add to her range of services the best innovations available to allow anyone to improve his/her cognitive and motor performance and his/her capacity to manage emotions.

Throughout the years, Dr. Lévesque has built up a team comprising several members of her family (her son Marc-Antoine and her sister-in-law Mélanie) as well as a group of qualified trainers all part of the greater Neurodezign family. This family spirit established by Dr. Lévesque is at the heart of her team’s, and each of her clients’, fundamental values. Dr. Lévesque splits her time between her clinical practice, carrying out her research projects, and conferences. She’s also co-author of three books, two being best-sellers. She holds an American certification in neurofeedback (from the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance – BCIA).

Marc Antoine Perreault joined the team in 2012 as administrative manager. Son of our founding neuropsychologist, Dr. Johanne Lévesque, Marc Antoine got a first-hand experience of neurofeedback. Having himself received an ADHD diagnosis when he was younger, he took part as a subject in Dr. Lévesque’s post-doctorate research project on neurofeedback in ADHD children. Noticing all the benefits tied with his own training, he set out to draw on and harness his entrepreneurial and marketing talents to the benefit of Neurodezign and neurofeedback. In 2015, he and his mother decided to join forces and associate in order to democratize neurofeedback and biofeedback in Quebec.

MÉLANIE VEILLEUX

Notre directrice bonheur

Dre Johanne Lévesque, neuropsychologue, a initié le neurofeedback au Québec en 2002, avec l’appui de la Fondation Lucie et André Chagnon, dans le cadre de son projet postdoctoral réalisé au centre de recherche de l’hôpital Sainte-Justine. Ce projet lui a d’ailleurs valu un prix international offert par la Foundation for Neurofeedback and Applied Neuroscience, en raison des avancées importantes qu’avait permis ce projet dans le domaine de la neuromodulation. Depuis, elle ne cesse de se perfectionner et d’ajouter à sa gamme de services les meilleures innovations disponibles pour permettre à quiconque d’améliorer ses performances cognitives et motrices et sa capacité à gérer ses émotions.

Au fil des années, elle s’est entourée d’une équipe comprenant plusieurs membres de sa famille (Marc-Antoine, son fils et Mélanie, sa belle-sœur) ainsi qu’un groupe d’entraîneurs qualifiés faisant tous partie de la grande famille Neurodezign. Cet esprit familial établi par Dre Lévesque est au coeur des valeurs fondamentales, non seulement au sein de son équipe mais aussi pour chacun de ses clients. Dre Lévesque partage son temps entre la pratique clinique, la réalisation de projets de recherche et les conférences. Elle est également co-auteure de 3 livres, dont 2 best-sellers.
