What is Brainspotting?
Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms. Brainspotting is a simultaneous form of diagnosis and treatment, enhanced with Biolateral sound, which is calming and direct and also containing.
Brainspotting functions as a neurobiological tool to support the clinical healing relationship. There is no replacement for a mature, nurturing therapeutic presence and the ability to engage another suffering human in a safe and trusting relationship where they feel heard, accepted, and understood.
Brainspotting gives us a tool, within this clinical relationship, to neurobiologically locate, focus, process, and release experiences and symptoms that are typically out of reach of the conscious mind and its cognitive and language capacity.
Brainspotting works with the deep brain and the body through its direct access to the autonomic and limbic systems within the body’s central nervous system. Brainspotting is accordingly a physiological tool/treatment which can clear and resolve psychological, emotional, and physical symptoms.
Through Brainspotting and mindfulness based therapy, I can effectively treat issues ranging from distressed feelings (depression, anxiety, stress) to complex trauma with measured pacing and gentleness. Past wounding often can manifest in negative thinking patterns, physical pain, and distressing feeling states. It is possible to support your mind and body towards self healing within a compassionate therapeutic relationship.
