2 doctors agree
In brief: Yes
Yes it can be an useful adjunct to therapy and medication.
But probably not a treatment by itself.

It is important to note there are very different types of biofeedback, so consult an experienced certified biofeedback clinician who will perform a thorough evaluation including a QEEG "brain map" to find the disregulated network areas that regulate mood. See PubMED, isnr.org & BCIA.org . Neurofeedback IMO is the most effective but only in the hands of professionals who understand the science

In brief: Biofeedback
Contrary to popular belief, empirical evidence for the use of biofeedback with a number of clinically significant conditions is weak.
