The traditional model of weekly psychotherapy may no longer be meeting your needs.
Perhaps you’ve had a felt sense that something profound has yet to change, but you’re not quite sure how to shift all the way into a new experience. Maybe you now cognitively understand new things, yet your body is still confused, so you’re curious about how adjunct therapy can help.
Perhaps you’ve been meaning to get into weekly therapy for a while now, but your schedule has been so hectic and demanding that a weekly, or even biweekly, therapy appointment feels more overwhelming than supportive. Or maybe you can only fit a monthly session into your schedule but feel it isn’t getting you the results you are looking for because it’s just so far apart.
Perhaps you’re needing help —- and a lot of it—- right now, and you don’t want to spend months in the traditional weekly model of therapy treatment to feel better.
Brainspotting Intensives support the busy person, whether it be from kids, work, home renovations - or the person who just needs help, right now. Whatever the reason that weekly sessions just won’t work for you, Brainspotting Intensives are available to support you during times you need help the most.
I offer Brainspotting Intensives for my current clients when they are needing extra support, as well as new clients who prefer to work intensively.
Brainspotting is not just for trauma; it is also used for performance enhancement, anxiety, confidence, overeating/emotional eating, and so on.
Brainspotting Intensives are personalized treatment plans that allow you to skip the wait by giving you faster access, and are designed to support your preferred schedule and timeline for your treatment goals.
RESEARCH ON INTENSIVE THERAPY IS POSITIVE.
Intensive application of trauma-focused therapy seems to be well tolerated in patients with PTSD, enabling faster symptom reduction with similar, or even better, results, while reducing the risk that clients drop out prematurely. Learn more here and here.
The economy is compelling: even compared to other trauma therapy, the intensive format may decrease treatment time, because of time not spent on a) checking in at the beginning of each session, b) addressing current crises and concerns, c) focusing on stabilizing and coping skills that the client won’t need after trauma healing, or d) assisting the client in regaining composure at the end of the session.
