What We Do

Dr. Whitehouse’s services fall into three interrelated domains. As a practicing psychologist and biofeedback specialist, he uses cognitive-behavioral, existential, transpersonal, and somatic strategies along with appropriate use of capnometry and HRV during sessions to develop a better understanding of a patient’s mind-body interactions. This gives him unparalleled ability to diagnose and treat psychological ailments with care, accuracy and efficiency.

As a consultant, Dr. Whitehouse uses his expertise to train therapists, coaches, and anyone else with an interest in optimizing their performance and developing healthy breathing techniques and healthy HRV.

And as an educator, Dr. Whitehouse gives seminars and workshops around the world on breathing, HRV, and wellness. He has developed a Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and HRV Flexibility® training and certification program that gives clients the skills they need to help others attain optimal heart rate and breathing patterns, for a healthier physical, mental, and emotional life. He pioneered the Personal HRV and Breathing Profile

Using capnometry – the study of the efficiency of a person’s breathing (in particular, the concentration of carbon dioxide that a person’s breathing attains) – and measuring it along with heart rate variability (HRV), Dr. Whitehouse specializes in evaluating how a person’s inner life is affected by (and in turn affects) Heart Rate and how one breathes. With his program he is then able to teach clients how to improve their breathing and HRV and intervene more actively in the mind-body interactions that characterize every type of psychophysiological phenomenon, from depression to peak level sports performance.
