Brainspotting Can Help
Brainspotting is a gentle, yet powerful brain-body therapy that helps you identify, process, and overcome the psychological impact of trauma, stress, and other emotional imbalances.
Brainspotting is based on the idea that “where you look, affects how you feel.” Specific eye placements allow your brain to process unconscious and emotional experiences that are often associated with your presenting symptoms. Brainspotting helps you access the parts of the brain that traditional talk therapy techniques cannot reach, ultimately, healing you faster and more effectively.
What To Expect
In the first few sessions we will gather information and complete a comprehensive assessment, identify the problems you are having, provide psychoeducation on the brain-body connection, and develop a personalized treatment plan. Your provider will help you identify the body sensations that are activated around a particular issue and find the eye placement that is directly related to that activation. By listening to your body sensations, you will learn how to heal from the inside out.
We realize that it is not always easy to notice and identify body sensations. Therefore, your provider will work with you to understand how your body responds to challenging thoughts and emotions, in order for you to heal faster and deeper than traditional talk therapy.
Is Brainspotting Right For You?
Every person has a different goal when seeking therapy. While traditional talk therapy methods can be beneficial, people frequently experiment with a variety of techniques for years without seeing much change. Brainspotting is unique to each person. It does not require you to relive your past, but rather, lets your body release those memories, so you can live a life without the stress, fear, guilt, and pain associated with those experiences. If you are looking for a type of therapy that goes deeper and truly gets to the root of your symptoms, then Brainspotting may be right for you.
