    Brainspotting

    How does Brainspotting work?

    A Brain Spot is accessed through eye positioning that correlates with these “capsules” of stored negative energy. Brainspotting goes directly to these deeper places within the brain much more quickly and effectively than many traditional forms of therapy.

    This therapeutic method is done so the client is not re-traumatized by reliving the original experience. The mindful attention between the client and the therapist allows for a safe space. Brainspotting dismantles the painful experience, symptoms, somatic/body distress, and outdated beliefs so new, more adaptive resources can develop.

    How Brainspotting can help:

    Brainspotting can help decrease depression, anxiety, phobias, and addictions. It is used with all areas of trauma, including survivors of war, natural disasters, and emotional/physical abuse. Brainspotting is also used for specific medical conditions, including traumatic brain injuries, strokes, fibromyalgia, headaches, and preparation and recovery from surgery. 

    In addition, Brainspotting can be used for performance enhancement in sports, acting, public speaking, auditions, and other performance-related experiences. Brainspotting works well with children, adolescents, adults, and couples.

    It is essential to understand that Brainspotting is done so the client is not re-traumatized by reliving the original experience. The mindful attention between the client and the therapist allows for a safe space as Brainspotting dismantles the trauma, symptoms, somatic/body distress, and outdated beliefs so new, more adaptive resources can develop.

    Brainspotting provides a focused and effective neurobiological tool for accessing, diagnosing, and treating many somatic and emotionally-based conditions.
