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 combines a ton of knowledge with an always-encouraging manner. Left to my own devices I would feel hopeless about developing the skill to practice neurofeedback, but Mary makes it feel accessible and possible. It’s a privilege and a relief to study with her!
I’m grateful for the privilege to be training with the renowned QEEG specialist Dr. Mary Tracy. Her knowledge, professionalism and dedication has made for an enriching mentoring experience. I would recommend her services for those looking to expand the horizons of their biofeedback expertise.
Working with Mary has been such a positive experience, and she has been a supportive and knowledgeable mentor. For me as a new Neurofeedback practitioner, it has been helpful that she is thoughtful about my level of experience, sharing information not only about specific protocols or assessments, but also repeatedly giving me background information and context to help me truly grasp and comprehend the concepts. She encourages me to ask questions and leaves space for me to process what she is sharing. To top it all off, she has a great sense of humor that puts me at ease and allows me to feel comfortable in the vulnerability of learning something new and complex.
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.
Mary really knows functional neuroanatomy and has been very helpful in helping me grasp the material on a practical and clinical level.
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.
Mary Tracy has been extremely instrumental in helping me to grow my Neurofeedback business. Through regular consistent consultations with her, I have grown as a practitioner exponentially over the past two years. I am very grateful for her continued guidance and support in my journey to help my clients heal!
When I completed the NFB course, I felt overwhelmed with all the information and had no idea how I would integrate NFB into my practice. I started consultation with Mary, and was able to slowly build my confidence and knowledge. Mary makes the information easy to understand, and is able to expand on topics to give me a broader understanding. I’m now able to utilize NFB training with clients as I continue to learn new information to integrate into my practice.
It is a pleasure to recommend Mary Tracy as a Neurotherapy Instructor. Her command of the subject of EEG equipment, equipment nuances as well as practical limitations of the equipment with the human condition is exceptional. Any student will soon realize her comfort with this multi-faceted subject is an earned product of her many years in this field, almost from the inception of “Biofeedback” itself. Any person who embarks upon learning Neurotherapy and chooses Mary Tracy for an instructor has chosen well. She is “One in a Million.”
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.
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.
I am so very grateful for the turn of events that brought Dr. Mary Tracy into our lives. As a neophyte to the field of neurofeedback I could not have been guided to a better trainer and mentor. I knew within 20 minutes of my first certification workshop with Mary, that if it was at all possible, I would ask her to mentor me in this field. Mary’s amazing acumen, broad experience, patience, and clinical sensitivity inform her training and her practice. Dr. Tracy is such a giving practitioner, trainer and professional. Wherever she is training, I would be there! I highly recommend enhancing your knowledge base and your current level of practice by spending time with Dr. Tracy. Mary is more than a mentor; we have adopted her as a new member of our family.
Dr. Mary Tracy is hands down the most gifted, talented, and intelligent person I have come to know in my Neurofeedback training. I feel honored to have been taught and trained with her and hear her voice of wisdom in my head every day. Without her I would not have pursued my career in Neurofeedback. To take a training from her means you’ve landed in the room of genuine brilliance. Thanks Mary!
Mary has been an excellent mentor as I entered the world of neurofeedback and QEEG assessment. Her ability to explain complex information in a clear and succinct manner has often helped to de-mystify the complex components of QEEG. She welcomes all questions and will suggest resources for further study. I have found her to be kind, patient, and her collegial manner is welcoming and reassuring. Her depth of knowledge and experience is a great resource and I always look forward to our sessions with excitement, as I never fail to come away without a rich nugget of insight.
