Brainspotting Therapy

Do you ever feel stuck?

Like regular talk therapy is not getting you the results you look for?

Do you still catch yourself and your body reacting in ways that feel uncomfortable, scary and do not align with how you want to be living your life?

Brainspotting Therapy™ (BSP) is a therapeutic process that uses specific points in the visual field to access unprocessed trauma in the brain. It uses eye positions, somatic (body) awareness, focused attention and the relationship between client and therapist to process and release stored traumas that may be causing emotional and physical problems in your present day life. 

Trauma can be processed while connecting to either distressed or calm areas within the body. Brainspotting Therapy can allow you to move quickly through processing of trauma in a contained and supported way. It is common people to experience both rapid relief of distress and profound insights.

When comparing to normal talk therapy, the individual is working mostly with the front part of the brain that manages thinking, talking, and problem-solving. However, a large amount of what individuals have experienced and how they react to things is stored in the lower part of the brain. Brainspotting is a way of working with this lower part and moving towards past events having less power over your present life. 

Brainspotting can be helpful for:

- Trauma

- Relationship betrayal 

- Inner child work 

- Anxiety

- Depression

- Performance issues

- Self-confidence / self-esteem

- & more...
