Mary Tracy has deep experience in EEG, going back to the same era as when I started. I know how deep and wide that knowledge runs, and I trust few to navigate it without assistance as well as she does. You are in experienced and knowledgeable hands with Mary guiding your EEG/qEEG education.

Mary Tracy has become a guiding light in the fields of quantitative EEG/qEEG and Neurofeedback. Her decades of experience and training make her uniquely suited to provide an excellent, comprehensive training experience. She has a knack for explaining complex subjects in a way that allows new practitioners to understand and immediately put to use the knowledge she imparts. I highly recommend everyone from new practitioners to experienced clinicians make use of this resource to begin or improve their study of this most fascinating field.

What Dr. Mary’s students are saying about this course

When you don’t know the answer, you go to Mary Tracy. She IS the encyclopedia of EEG and Neurofeedback. It doesn’t matter where the gap in your knowledge base is, she will find it. Every encounter with Mary makes you a better practitioner. Hell, every encounter makes you a better person. She is brilliant, kind, funny and can demystify the most complicated and confusing EEG challenges.

When I entered the world of QEEG and Neurofeedback I was overwhelmingly frustrated to find the field had yet to construct a clear, direct path of education and practical experience to create a well-rounded practitioner. I spent years jumping from one training to the next attempting to gather the puzzle pieces that would theoretically come together to make me a competent and well-versed Neurofeedback clinician. Along the way I met incredible mentors, educators, and practitioners who each shared their packet of wisdom and expertise. Yet I couldn’t get the whole picture of EEG and Neurofeedback to come together. And then by random luck, I met Mary Tracy. With her field experience, teaching skills and honestly, just her heart of gold, Mary found a way to string all those random pieces together so I could finally get “it.” Mary took the time to find the gaps I was missing and supportively fill them to complete the Neurofeedback puzzle. She is who I aspire to be.

In March 2021, we had our first individual coaching with Mary Tracy. Since then, we have been looking forward to this weekly meeting. It is with great simplicity, clarity and kindness that Mary shares her experience and knowledge with us.

Merci à Mary for helping us strengthen our expertise.

I fully endorse Dr. Mary Tracy as an outstanding EEG and qEEG trainer. Mary brings experience, in-depth knowledge, and expertise to her learners and she presents with authenticity, compassion, and an understanding of the context at hand. I have benefited greatly from qEEG group training with Mary, and from individual training sessions, discussing and interpreting qEEG recordings and developing EEG training protocols for clients.

Since I started being coached by Dr. Mary Tracy, my knowledge of EEG has grown tremendously. Before training with her, I was trained to look at computed values and norms. But Mary Tracy taught me how to look at the raw EEG and understand it. I found it very empowering for my practice. Now I can do an EEG recording, read it, compute it, and verify if the computations are correct according to the raw EEG. Great coaching, in addition with all the clinical knowledge she shares and a great positive energy from Dr. Mary Tracy.

Mary really knows functional neuroanatomy and has been very helpful in helping me grasp the material on a practical and clinical level.

In 2018 I enrolled on the Neurofeedback Certification course, which was being held for the first time in London. I travelled from a city called Newcastle which was 4 hours by train and arrived in London really excited about the 4 days ahead of me.

Dr. Mary Tracy had travelled from Davis California to teach the course and after reading about her career and background I felt confident I would learn a lot. By the beginning of day three I was feeling overwhelmed by the enormity of what I was learning and felt completely out of my depth. I quietly left the training room, walked over to Camden Market, sat on a bench, and cried for about twenty minutes. That evening, my phone rang. It was Dr. Tracy. She’d noticed that I had left the training and asked if I would go in early the next morning so she could spend some time with me and help. I arrived early the next morning and Dr. Tracy was waiting with a lovely smile. We spent some time talking and during that time not only did I feel reassured and supported, but I also felt validated and heard. Mary also offered to mentor me in my work, as she felt that my background and education as a Psychotherapist would really support my Neurofeedback work.

My experience of training with Dr Mary Tracy has changed my life in so many ways. She became my mentor and through that relationship I’ve learnt so much, but more than that I’ve had the privilege of experiencing the most caring, generous, supporting person you could ever wish to meet. I know I wouldn’t be where I am now without Dr Mary Tracy, so if you have the opportunity to be trained by her or mentored by her, grab it with both hands and don’t let go because not only will you learn so much from her, but your life will be greatly enriched by the experience.

As a student of holistic and traditional healing methods for more than 30 years, I have worked to blend this knowledge and experience with the most current research in psychology, neurophysiology and developmental neuro-technology. My goal has been to create a powerful, effective method for change.

I began working with biofeedback and neurofeedback in 1974. My clients have included children and adults with ADHD and other learning problems, chronic pain, addiction disorders and much more. I currently maintain a private practice, provide consulting services for new and existing neurotherapy programs and work as an instructor, training others to become neurotherapy practitioners.

My masters degree is in psychology. I am licensed as an alcohol and drug counselor and certified in biofeedback and neurofeedback by the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA).
