Neuro Balance Australasia

Our Mission


Neuro Balance’s mission is to make a positive change to the lives of people around the world by improving the lifelong health and well-being of citizens, through initiative, innovation and integration.


Our Philosophy


Neuro Balance’s philosophy is to provide practitioners with world leading, technologically advanced, diagnostic and therapeutic tools, responsive designed platform captures essential information about the clients’ psychopathology at the time of their appointment.  This gives the practitioner the best opportunity to improve clients’ health, well-being and lifestyle outcomes.


Our Products




We’ve obtained Licence Agreements to use highly researched, peer-reviewed diagnostic measures and integrated them into software programs that are portable, quick, efficient and most importantly, practical and easy to use in clinical settings.

The program uses both cognitive and subconscious measures, developed by world recognised psychologists and researched in a variety of settings over a long period of time providing evidence-based analysis.

The key benefit of our foundation product, NeuroAssess is that it assesses a client’s tendency towards suicide (acting in) or homicide (acting out).  This tool identifies and anticipates risks for clients, assisting practitioners to prevent the client, or significant others around them, coming to harm.  

NeuroAssess has been designed to provide our trained practitioners with essential flags, strategies, tools, emergency contacts and referral systems – all available at their fingertips.  When this program is utilised it protects the practitioner and ensures the practitioner’s Duty of Care is delivered. 


Virtual Mindfulness


Virtual Mindfulness Therapy is a method that uses the latest in relaxation techniques based on the emerging science of mind-body medicine.  Creating a mind-body connection through the process of enhanced mindfulness is a refreshing and relaxing experience. 

Virtual Mindfulness Therapy works with the conscious and subconscious mind to develop new neurological pathways.  These help to reprogram the client’s thinking, so that instead of just taking care of the symptoms, patients learn to change those predictable habits and behaviours.

Our Virtual Mindfulness programs deliver seven different enhanced techniques in a specifically designed, innovative audio-visual format, which completely immerses the patient in the therapeutic virtual environment. 

The Virtual Mindfulness programs are ideal for patients suffering from Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Acute Stress Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  The therapy has been designed to deliver a gentle, welcoming, virtual environment, in which the patient is led through many therapeutic processes, quickly and effectively teaching them valuable strategies to help them achieve a positive, hopeful outlook and a state of calm.  These processes are implanted in the subconscious mind and the patient is able to recall and use those strategies later, especially when stressed. 

Virtual Mindfulness therapy rapidly assists the patient to shift from being stuck, to being receptive to other forms of intervention which they previously denied, thus it is an ideal adjunct to other Counselling/Psychology modalities.

Our Training Programs


Using Measures in Clinical Practice – DASS/ORS/SRS/HHH and Intro to Luscher


Measures provide clinicians with the information they require to support the development of management/care plans, as well as the monitoring, review and evaluation of that care.  Measuring the health outcomes of consumers in mental health services is critical to ensure that every consumer continually benefits from the treatment and care they receive.


Become A Certified Practitioner – 8 Color Test (Luscher) 


The Lüscher-Color-Diagnostic ® is a psychological profiling tool developed by Dr Max Luscher in Basel, Switzerland.


Dr Lüscher’s research indicated that the colour selections are guided in an unconscious manner, they reveal the person as they really are, not as they perceive themselves or how they would like to be perceived.


The test covers eight diagnostic colours and their meaning to give a 90% accurate readout of the client’s current disposition.
