"For years I sought the help of different therapists to gain control of my emotional distress. I tried various medications. Only Novo's combination of brain training and therapy gave me the sensation that I was firmly in the driver's seat of my own recovery. That I was in control of my mind and not the other way around. I recommend them to anyone suffering emotional distress. With Novo's help I've learned to have faith once more in that beautiful ideal: we have the power to change ourselves into that person we always wanted to be."
