What is Brainspotting?

Are you feeling stuck in regular talk therapy?

Brainspotting may be for you!

Brainspotting is a type of somatic therapy that focuses on the brain-body connection to help people process and heal from traumatic experiences, anxiety, phobias and so on. It aims to help people process painful experiences and reduce their current symptoms by using the body's natural ability to heal itself.

Brainspotting might be a good fit for you if;

  • Talk therapy hasn’t worked.

  • You have past trauma controlling your life and relationships.

  • You experience anxiety, panic, and/or worry.

  • You feel stuck.

  • You want to reach our goals.

Brainspotting can help you;

  • Get unstuck.

  • Process trauma.

  • Gain confidence.

  • Connect with yourself.

  • Get rid of unhelpful narratives.

  • Become more of the person you want to be.

During a brainspotting session, you will be guided to identify what is called a brainspot. This is a specific point in the visual field that is linked to the activation of a traumatic memory or emotion. Once the spot is located, you will be guided through the processing and the release of trauma. The goal of brainspotting is to access and process painful experiences in a comfortable, grounded way. By focusing on the brain-body connection and using somatic techniques, brainspotting can help people release the physical and emotional tension that has been stored in the body for too long - sometimes even years & decades!

Brainspotting has been shown to be effective in treating a range of mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, and addiction. It is particularly effective in treating trauma-related issues, as it allows individuals to access and process traumatic memories in a comfortable, grounded and controlled way.
