MEET SANTIAGO

Santiago Brand Ortiz

*Is a provider for 10 Day Intensives only

I started my career in the field of sport psychology in 2002 when an athlete I was working with attempted suicide. It was then when I realized that studying clinical psychology would also be extremely important in order to better serve and understand the athlete´s mental health dynamics.

In 2003 while working at the Biomedical Center for Sports Services in Bogotá, Colombia I started noticing that written tests, interviews and assessments did not provide enough evidence of the underlying processes that dictate why some athletes are more successful than others or why all of a sudden they are hit with performance slumps. That same year, I started a quest to find ways to demonstrate with more concrete evidence what happens in the athletes’ mind and body and how this processes influence performance. It was in 2004 when I “stumbled” upon neurofeedback and biofeedback when a colleague did a talk on the subjects and I immediately knew that there lied the answer to all the questions I had in my mind.

For the next three years I educated myself on the topics reading and learning as much as I could on the subjects, doing online research and talking to other professionals who had been using the techniques for years. In 2008 resigned to my position and traveled to the United States to physically learn biofeedback and neurofeedback. I took the first training in Fort Lauderdale, Florida through The Stens Corporation. While at that workshop, I met a clinician who as re-opening her clinic and started doing practicum hours at Central Florida Neuropsychology. After 3 weeks I was offered a position as biofeedback and neurofeedback assistant and worked there for 2 years with diverse populations with ADD/ADHD, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, PTSD, trauma and many others. I also recorded qEEGs (Brain Maps). After two years I resigned and returned to Bogotá in 2010 where I started my own business Brand Neurofeedback where I do qEEG (brain mapping) assessment and interpretation, biofeedback and neurofeedback training for diverse conditions such as epilepsy, ADD/ADHD, anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, trauma, learning and academic disabilities and many others.

I also provide QEEG assessments and neurofeedback training for professional athletes in golf, soccer, motocross, BMX, tennis among other sports. In 2014 I was contacted by Coldeportes and the Colombian Olympic Committee to work in helping them develop the neuroscience lab. My duties involved providing qEEG assessment for athletes from Colombia, Paraguay, Chile, Brazil and other countries, develop neurofeedback and biofeedback training protocols for conventional and Paralympic athletes and perform psychophysiological stress profiles.

I also developed interdisciplinary intervention protocols with nutrition and injury rehabilitation with physical therapy using EMG and temperature biofeedback, as well as audio visual entrainment and cranial-electro-stimulation.

I also specialize in the field of trauma and Brainspotting which I have been utilizing for the past two years. In the present day I am also a neurofeedback and biofeedback trainer, consultant and lecturer. I have trained and consulted for people from The United States, Spain, Germany, Costa Rica, Colombia, Brazil, Ecuador and Chile and have been hired to train and lecture in Chile, Brazil, Mexico, Guatemala and Ecuador. I am currently a consultant for the Guatemalan Olympic Committee and North Technical University in Ecuador. I am also a researcher for BrainSpotting International studying changes in the EEG and psychophysiological responses to trauma and trauma treatment.
