Dr. Horst H. Mueller, RPsych, CRHSP, FBCIA-EEG, FPPR
I am Dr. Horst Mueller, Director of Edmonton Neurotherapy. I am an Alberta-registered psychologist (Alberta College of Psychologists Practice Permit #1290) with special interests and extensive experience in clinical and health psychology and applied psychophysiology and biofeedback. I have attained board-certification in both biofeedback and psychopharmacology and have over 35 years of experience working as a clinical psychologist in psychiatric, general and rehabilitation hospital settings; community mental health clinics; and in private practice treating both children and adults. I have been treating patients with biofeedback since 1978 and with neurofeeback and brain stimulation techniques since 1995. I also have extensive experience working with persons suffering from chronic pain conditions.
I am currently listed with the Canadian Register of Health Service Psychologists (CRHSP) and I am a Diplomate-Fellow of the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA), the International College of Prescribing Psychologists (ICPP), and the Prescribing Psychologists' Register (PPR).
I am also affiliated with a number of voluntary professional associations and societies, including the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta (PAA), the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA), the Canadian Pain Society (CPS), the Pain Society of Alberta (PSA), the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB), the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR), and the Multidisciplinary Association for the Study of Cranio-Cervical Pain (MASCCP). In the past, I have been President of the Psychologists' Society of Saskatchewan, the College of Alberta Psychologists, and the Pain Society of Alberta and and have held positions on the Board of Directors of all these organizations as well as the Psychologists' Association of Alberta and the Canadian Register of Health Service Psychologists at one time or another.
My treatment approach is primarily cognitive-behavioural and psychoneurophysiological, emphasizing the complex interconnectedness of mind and body. I specialize in combining cognitive and behavioural psychotherapies with biofeedback and neurotherapies to treat stress-related medical conditions and the psychological and neurophysiological factors that may initiate, aggravate or maintain many chronic physical conditions, including chronic pain.
To the best of my knowledge, I am currently the only registered psychologist in Edmonton with BCIA diplomate certification in EEG neurofeedback offering neurotherapies for such brain-based disorders as attention-deficit disorder, autistic spectrum disorders, brain injury related cognitive dysfunction, chronic pain disorders, depression, anxiety disorders (including obsessive-compulsive disorders and PTSD) and insomnia.
All services are by appointment only. Physician referral is not required. My services are not covered by Alberta Health Insurance but may be partially or fully reimbursable as a psychology benefit under many employer or privately funded extended health care insurance policies.
My standard fee rate falls within the current fees guidelines of the Psychologists' Association of Alberta GOTO: http://www.psychologistsassociation.ab.ca/site/recommended_fee_schedule.
I offer all new prospective patients a brief initial consultation (maximum 50 minutes) for a special reduced fee of $60. Any over-time will be billed at my standard fee rate.
