After working in the United States for ten years he returned to Australia, where he has continued his practice. He has worked extensively in schools, as well as at the Children’s Court, as an expert Forensic Psychologist. He has taken additional training in family therapy, as well as Hakomi Therapy, a psychotherapeutic method used in individual counselling. Seventeen years ago, Dr. Perl began using Neurofeedback in his practice, and has found it to be an effective tool to help people with a variety of disorders, including ADHD, learning difficulties, depression, sleep disturbances, anxiety, panic and migraine. Over the years, Dr. Perl has made numerous presentations to professional bodies on a variety of topics, such as the MMPI, ADHD, and Neurofeedback.  He has been teaching neurofeedback to professionals for the past 15 years. Dr. Perl is registered to practice as a Psychologist in Australia. He is a member of the Australian Psychological Society, and belongs to the Colleges of Clinical and Forensic Psychology. He was a founding member of the Australian branch of the Society for Neuronal Regulation (the largest worldwide professional organisation for neurofeedback practitioners) and served as a Board member.  More recently, he is past president and fellow of the Applied Neuroscience Society of Australasia, the professional organisation that superseded iSNR in Australia.  Dr. Perl has taught internationally, and is currently involved in introducing neurofeedback and EEG analysis to Japan.

In his practice, Dr. Perl emphasises the need for a variety of interventions in order to deal with the often complex nature of psychological difficulties which people face. For that reason he utilises psychological assessments, individual and family therapy approaches and neurofeedback when appropriate to help resolve psychological issues and improve well-being.
